Our founder, Dave Wilfong started his career in 1965 working as a Sales Correspondent at the Mechanics Universal Joint Division of Borg Warner Corp.
Since that time Mr. Wilfong has held many sales and marketing positions within the power train industry and has travelled the world visiting vehicle manufacturers and power train component manufacturers. He has worked closely with the sales and engineering people to develop power train solutions to many varied designs and applications.
His experience includes high level management, joint venture and licensing agreements, strategic product line pruning and expansion, divesting and acquiring entire businesses. After retiring from Borg Warner and Rockford Powertrain Inc., Mr. Wilfong started his own business to consult, advise, and sell for power train manufacturers worldwide.
This business came to be known as Rockford Engineered Components, Inc. and has grown into primarily a manufacturers’ sales agency with over 20 million annual sales. Mr. Wilfong has also consulted with several US companies to find and joint venture with Chinese manufacturers and develop strategic and tactical plans to enter off highway vehicle segments or products they were not in previously.
The company started as a one-man operation but grew too rapidly and added an inside sales manager to answer all e-mails promptly and manage the sales management and opportunity follow up system. The clients have grown their sales and come to depend on Rockford’s product and market knowledge.
