Founded in Torrington, CT, Borgeson began manufacturing universal joints for lathes and milling machines in 1914. By the 1920’s, Ford was using our universal joints for steering some of their prototypes. Borgeson Universal continued to develop and refine u-joints for industrial, aerospace and OEM vehicle applications. Borgeson was also supplying steering universal joints for racing vehicles when purchased in 1982 by the current owners. Being street rodders, we soon began developing applications for street rods. Borgeson has continually improved and developed the original needle bearing universal joints into the most reliable, smoothest operating, strongest u-joints you can buy. Today, Borgeson is the leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket steering universal joints and steering components for the street rod, racing, specialty automotive and pickup truck markets. Seeking to expand, Borgeson purchased Mullins Steering Gears in 2001. Mullins had been providing the street rod industry with quality steering boxes and a full line of aluminum accessories for over 17 years. Our first joint project was the Collapsible Rod Column, which was honored with the NSRA 2001 Safety Product of the year award. Our manufacturing facility is located at 91 Technology Park Drive, Torrington, Connecticut. This new 50,000 square foot plant was designed and built for increased production efficiency and capacity so we can better serve our customers. We use the latest manufacturing and inventory control procedures to maintain stock, and take great pride in being able to ship most orders the same day, if placed by 3:30 PM Eastern Time. We believe our growth is based on a policy of honesty and always listening to our customers, whether you are a corporation or working in your garage. We try to respond to your suggestions by developing needed innovations to help increase steering system safety and make building your car more fun.
