History

Founded in 1920, U.S. Axle boasts a long legacy of engineering excellence and satisfied customers.

US Axle shafts - Founded in 1920, U.S. Axle boasts a long legacy of engineering excellence and satisfied customers.

In 1923, U.S. Axle had the privilege to work with Duesenberg race cars – providing them with the expertise needs to create new racing axles. Our axles not only outperformed others of their time, but were also more durable and long lasting, giving Duesenberg the competitive edge.

Most of our history is inspired by our outstanding partnerships with companies, and our desire to create and innovate on their behalf. These joint efforts have created groundbreaking work that not only benefits both companies, but fosters strong relationships for the future. More importantly, it makes for one heck of a story!

In the early 90s, U.S. Axle was asked to join forces with a client to address the specific needs of their modified dump truck. Upon completion, the dump truck set the World Record for largest dump truck! Our parts were able to handle the unique stresses of the machine, and ensured its continued durability.

After its purchase in 2002 by current CEO, Ernie Inmon, the company has focused on helping customers overcome their engineering obstacles and achieve their production goals. We invite you to become part of our history and allow us to assess your own unique needs.
