Status Update

March 30, 2020

The leadership team at SuperFlow realizes that we are facing a very unique situation with the COVID-19 virus. We want to reiterate that our focus is on our loyal Customers, our dedicated employees, and our communities at large.

The experts have painted a sobering picture for our nation. We are sure this is true for where ever you are located and reading this. We want to make it clear that SuperFlow is committed to “flattening the curve” and doing our part to overcome this global crisis.

With that said, our Colorado Springs office remains open in accordance with Colorado's 'Shelter in Place' orders. We will continue to do everything possible, within prevailing safe practices, to ensure our customers receive high-quality products and the level of technical service and support that they require.

Here are the steps we've taken to support our Customers, Employees and Communities during these times:

  • We moved about 90% of our Office, Sales and Service staff to remote working situations
  • The company has been divided into distinct groups to ensure business continuity
  • These groups are working out of self-contained areas and are divided by a 30-minute break between shifts to clean and sanitize our work spaces.
  • Financially, we have a company record backlog that we will continue to work on through August of this year. Leadtimes will continue to come down, quality will be a focus and capacity will open, especially for the 3rd and 4th quarters

Power Test, the parent company of SuperFlow, has been through three major economic dips in the last 19 years and keeps coming out stronger because we developed and executed our strategic and tactical plans. This situation will be no different. We thank you for choosing the Power Test family of brands: Super Flow, Pivotal Pumps, AIDCO, Stuska, Axiline, Hicklin, and TCRS. Please contact your Sales or Service representative if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Rick Ruzga
President

R&R Performance Tests 10,000th Engine

April 29, 2019

Ron Quarnstrom, owner of R&R Performance, knows a thing or two about engine testing.  In April, after 32 years of engine building and tuning, he tested his 10,000th engine on a SF-902S Performance Engine Dynamometer. This past weekend, Ron celebrated the accomplishment at his facility in Spring Lake Park, MN with friends, customers, and representatives from SuperFlow onsite to tour the facility. Visitors were also audience to a number of pulls on the SuperFlow dyno with Ron showcasing its many applications in the engine building world.

“I started dynoing 32 years ago, April 11, 1987, and back then we didn’t know we’d get to 10,000 engines,” said Ron. “The dyno has been a good investment.”

With a SuperFlow dyno at the center, Mr. Quarnstrom has built quite a business at R&R Performance, an engine dyno and machine shop. The SF-902S gives shop owners the ability to charge for dyno operation, provide real-time data acquisition analysis, and deliver precision engine tuning on location.  With multiple revenue driving applications and significant cost-saving opportunities, customers are able to see a positive ROI within 2 years of purchase.  

Alan Petelinsek, owner of Power Test, Inc. and SuperFlow, was on hand to congratulate Ron and see the dyno in operation.

“10,000 engines over 32 years is an amazing accomplishment. It’s not just the engines, it’s the knowledge that he’s acquired over the years,” he said. “Ron shows what can be done with a dyno and with that passion that comes with the industry. This event is about the experience that he’s gained and the relationships that he’s built. We want to congratulate Ron, thank him for being a loyal customer of SuperFlow, and for giving us a taste of the knowledge he’s acquired over these 10,000 engines.”

When asked what’s next for R&R Performance, Ron was modest in targeting future milestones.

“I don’t know about going for 15,000, but I’ll be doing this for a while.”
