To manufacture universal joints for lathes and milling machines. By the 1920s, Ford was using our universal joints for steering some unusual vehicles they were developing. Prior to a change in ownership in 1962 the company had been supplying steering universal joints for racing vehicles for years. Since that time, we have continued to develop universal joints that are now the most reliable, smoothest operating, strongest for their size needle bearing universal joints available today. As a result, Borgeson is now the leading supplier of steering universal joints in the Street Rod, Racing, Specialty Automotive and Aftermarket fields.
