Our Story

Made In The USA

American Made Quality first and foremost.

Billet Specialties has been on the forefront of manufacturing billet aluminum wheels since the start; right here in the USA.

1985

Birth of a Product Line

Working at his father’s side and learning manufacturing and machine programming, Glenn soon had aspirations of his own. After machining some parts for his 1932 Ford Coupe, it was time to bring his love of cars into the business. At the young age of 26, Glenn began designing and producing parts for the street rod and muscle car market. The year was 1985 and Billet Specialties was born.

Starting off in a 4,000 sq ft. area, it was only two years before the space became too small and a 20,000 sq ft. building was purchased to handle the growth. As sales and production continued to grow, expansion continued into a second 24,000 sq ft. building in 1997.

In 2002, we moved to our current 100,000 sq ft. building, bringing the entire operation back under one roof.

Foundation of Quality

Customer Service & Delivery

From its start in 1985, Billet Specialties continuously improved every aspect of manufacturing, engineering and product development. Glenn’s vision never wavered as Billet Specialties carved its niche as one of the most recognized names in the Hot Rod industry. Superior product may be the cornerstone, but customer service and delivery are the mortar that holds it together. Our staff consists of automotive enthusiasts that understand current trends, and can provide technical knowledge and application information to assist you.

Long-term relationships with customers and dealers are built on great customer service.

History of the Wheel

Our first wheel was machined in 1989. It was a three piece wheel. In 1990, two piece wheels became the standard for the Hot Rod Industry. These innovative designs allowed custom fitments creating the perfect fit for your vehicle. Fast forward to 2013 and the three piece wheel is reborn.  The B-Forged brand was created to provide the luxury and performance market with the same quality, design, engineering and delivery our customers have counted on for over 30 years.

Manufacturing

We pride ourselves in the fact that we are one of the few companies who perform all operations of wheel manufacturing under one roof. From design to finishing, all processes take place in our 100,000 sq ft facility located in La Grange, IL, resulting in the highest quality products for your vehicle.
