Summit Industries, Inc. was initially established in 1980 as a holding company. In later years, Summit acquired Jardine Products and began manufacturing accessories for the motorcycle industry and all terrain vehicle industry (ATV). Then in 2001, Summit purchased Doug Thorley Headers, which manufactures headers for automobiles, trucks and recreational vehicles.
For most of the more than twenty years now, the company has gained a reputation for manufacturing the highest quality of accessories, such as complete lines of exhaust systems, handle bars, wheels, headers and various other things.
Because of the versatility and adaptability of its equipment, it gave the company an opportunity to pursue other products in other industries to manufacture. The company made progress in soliciting business.
The company is continuing its research and development of products it carries in-house with only the best and high standard known to the market. With continuous participation in trade shows and advertising in trade shows and advertising in trade magazines, the company is hopeful in attracting more business from other branches of industries requiring our type of manufacturing process and service for their prospective products.
The company remains optimistic in achieving its bottom line goals for the years ahead with renewed vigor and determination. After 20 years we are still growing and attempting to prepare for the challenges of the future.

In 1958, Jardine developed its first exhaust system for Hot Rod Cars. In 1972, we applied that performance technology to our first high performance exhaust system for motorcycles. In those days, computer simulation, CAD Cam, Vector Tracing, and all the other technology that we use today, just wasn’t readily available.
RD was done the good old fashioned way; hand build a prototype, run it out to the dyno to make some smoke, then repeat as required to get just the right power, sound, and styling. The rest is history. But unlike most manufactures, Jardine will never forget its history and that golden era of performance motorcycles.
Nowadays, Jardine exhaust systems are manufactured using the latest technology. High tech CMM and Vector Infrared Tracer machines copy prototypes to NASA type specs. Automated punch presses, CNC Tube Cutters and Benders manipulate metal at incredible rates of accuracy and speed.
In one fluid motion, robotic arms plasma cut shapes and weld components together from precisely written computer programs and fixtures. Final assembly includes polishing, plating or coating, and packaging.
