You’re as cold as ice!

HVAC ducting is going in. We’re getting cooler by the day...

White out

Everything from the ceiling, to the walls has been, or is being painted. We’re getting very close to move in.









Stick around to see the building really start to take shape.

Taking Shape

Our new home is starting to look like the next chapter in AWE Tuning. With offices taking their final form, and our showroom getting a brand new garage door, tile flooring and giant windows all the way across.

Entrance and Showroom windows installed. There’s going to be a cool “AWE Tuning Red” cover over the main door near where the discolored block is, to protect from the elements:



This area below will soon house our sales and marketing teams, full open collaboration layout including open meeting areas.



Directly across from the sales & marketing area will be the research and engineering team, including the prototyping team. One of the challenges in our current space is a long walk between the departments. Our goal with the open layout was to increase immediate communication to speed time-to-market and innovation. Engineering area seen here:



Another must-have for us was to ensure that everyone came together at least once a day in a central chill-zone. That’s this below. A cafe-meets-break-room-meets-collaboration space, this section will be stocked with comfy seating, high-tops, a kitchen, and outdoor access. Most importantly, it’s a place for everyone to meet, whether they’ve been typing or welding all day.



A view of the showroom from the soon to be reception desk. Room for cars, people and comfort.



The glass garage door will allow visitors to see into the R&D area from the showroom, and also allow for easy placement of cars into the showroom without driving outside first.



View of some of our the offices, including extra windows up top to ensure maximum natural light.



Additional offices and break out rooms:



She’s coming together!

Right around the corner.

Our official move date is fast approaching, and with that our building isn’t just starting to look like our new home, it is our new home. As you’re reading this portions of the company are shuttling everything they need to the new space. Over the new couple weeks the entire company will slowly funnel into the new state-of-the-art facility.

Holy shiny. This is the new R&D area. Prototyping / R&D lifts coming soon.



Peering into the showroom from installations and prototyping. There will be a clear line of sight from the showroom into where the magic happens.



Below, our new showroom getting the finishing touches. It’s about 600hp and a sofa away from being home.



Another view of our showroom from the main entrance.



Looking over reception into part of the office space, from the new front desk.



Bathrooms on the left, looking back into the offices, our marketing and sales departments right up front in an open and collaborative environment.



One of the new conference rooms - will be outfitted with a big (really big) monitor and we’re in the midst of finishing a custom conference room table.



The new home of the finance team.



Quick access for our engineering team to the installations and prototyping area. Note tile runway for the FARO arm - this was an important feature as the team is frequently rolling between “cars and CAD” and the ‘arm is a key member of the R&D team.



The new engineering team area - open, well lit and ready for an easy flow between marketing, sales and this department.



One of our favorite areas, the “cafe,” which will be a central location for all fabrication, engineering, sales, marketing, finance, prototyping, shipping and admin to come together for food, breaks and collaboration.



Next up… you might even see some furniture! Thanks for following along with us, stay tuned as we update with final decor and really “make it home.”

Research and Development. Developments.

Our brand new R&D area is getting the finishing touches. A quick shot of three of the five lifts that will make up the “lab” - in close proximity to the engineering offices (just on the other side of the wall on the left).



And below, this is the “runway” for our FaroArm between the lifts and the Engineering offices, to ensure speedy scanning-to-conception.



We are quickly wrapping up all the different areas in our new headquarters - stay tuned - we’re getting close!

Wish you all the best in this venture and endeavors...

Nice, you guys using the Faro Edge? I just bought one for my department with a Vantage tracker for the localization station moving. That line scanner is pretty nuts.

Right on man. Cool to see metrology getting used outside of just the aerospace world. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask. I am certified with both Spatial Analyzer and Polyworks.

We’re in!

It’s official. We’re in our new space! The entire AWE Tuning organization is now in our brand new state-of-the-art facility at 199 Precision Drive, Horsham, PA 19044.

Still a ton of work to be accomplished to make it feel and look like home, but as of today:
  • Fabrication is in place and producing at 100%
  • Engineering is R&D’ing
  • Marketing is writing stuff like this
  • Sales is selling
  • Finance is adding and subtracting (and multiplying and occasionally dividing)
  • Prototyping is fitting
  • Shipping is loading
In other words, this battle ship is fully operational.

We’re still working hard on the facility so stay tuned as she keeps coming together!

Move made; making moves. A week has passed since our relocation to the new AWE Tuning headquarters, and we’re quickly settling in; it already feels like home.

We’re ready and eager to start filling our lifts with vehicles for research and development.



No rest for engineering: testing, tuning, and tinkering away.



The fabrication shop resonates with the sounds of production as our team of craftsmen work at a blurring speed to get our components in your hands. We’re taking full advantage of the new space by bringing in great talent and fine machinery to reduce all lead times.




Full steam ahead: freshly built batches of exhaust components ready to be boxed up and shipped out.



The AWE Tuning Mustang Dynamometer is in place and ready to help us extract maximum performance during development of new products. She’s looking better than ever with a fresh coat of paint.



We’re excited to personalize our new space further, next update coming next week!

We’re making good use of our new R&D lifts and fleet of in-house project cars; charging forward with new product development and testing.



You may recognize this fine machine from the lobby of our old facility, well, she’s made it to her new home. This is chassis #002 of five, Champion/AudiSport S4 Competitions. These cars were campaigned in the SpeedVision/Speed World Challenge GT race series back in 2000 thru 2002. This car participated in Michael Galati’s championship winning season in 2001, also grabbing the Manufacturers Title that same year.

There are 5 original cars still around:
1 is used for track events in the Pacific NW.
1 is owned by GMG.
1 is used in vintage racing in the SE US.
1 is owned by Audi NA and is in their collection.
And 1 is owned by us.

Today, the power plant is a 2.7L V6 with TiAL 605 turbos and Bosch engine management, with an estimated 550 bhp at the crank. Yes, we still track it!



The rack below is a staging area for several components about to be packaged up for our dealer stocking orders. In the background, you can see our .065” thick T304L stainless steel waiting to be crafted into an AWE Tuning exhaust.



New improvements are being implemented every day, we look forward to sharing them with you as we optimize further.
