Coast to Coast Circuits is a combined offering of two facilities, one in New York (formerly known as Metro Circuits) and one in California (formerly known as Speedy Circuits).

“I have kept my eye on these two facilities for much of my career and have a great deal of respect for the reputation they have both developed in key markets,” said Porter. “We have already made several improvements to both factories and are pleased to serve a great customer-base. With our Rochester, New York factory restored to a fully operational state, we have two highly-proficient factories ready to serve all our customers’ needs. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the ownership team, their support has been amazing and we look forward to conquering the challenges ahead.”
