Over fifty years of engineering milestones for Banks Power president and founder Gale Banks began at age 14 with an engine teardown of his mother's '31 Ford Model A that resulted in an increase of more than 40 horsepower. Just two years later, in 1958, Gale was officially in the engine business, first in Lynwood, California, then in San Gabriel. He remains the hands-on president to the 100+ employee-strong manufacturing and engineering complex that today occupies 12 acres in the San Gabriel Valley town of Azusa.
The bedrock integrity of Gale Banks is at the very core of Banks Power. Gale's fundamental principles combine old-fashioned business ethics and service with leading technology, elegantly engineered products, superior construction, scientifically proven performance, and reasonable prices.
