QA1 to Host Open House at New Facility

Jul 8, 2021

QA1 will be hosting its first open house event since the completion of its new facility in 2020, the company announced.

The company’s space will be open to visitors from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on July 16. Guided tours will be followed by a #goDRIVEit cruise to the Street Machine Summer Nationals at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, the company said.

The open house will give enthusiasts an opportunity to see QA1’s development center, manufacturing floor and more. On the guided tours, attendees will see first-hand how QA1’s products are designed and manufactured in the 100,000-plus sq. ft. Lakeville, Minnesota facility. Refreshments will also be provided.

2021’s open house marks the return of the company’s annual event after a two-year hiatus, due to the transition to the new building in 2019 and coronavirus precautions in 2020. QA1’s previous events have attracted hundreds of cars, enthusiasts and media members each year, the company said.

“We’re looking forward to finally welcoming our customers and fellow enthusiasts into our new facility,” said Melissa Scoles, president of QA1. “Those who have been to our open house previously will meet several of the same team members they’ve gotten to know in the past but will see a vastly different setup for development and manufacturing. New attendees will enjoy engaging with the team and learning how our products are expertly made. We’re excited to reconnect with so many while showing off our new home.”

“Our open house has always been an event we love to host. It gives us an opportunity to share the pride we take in building QA1 products with area enthusiasts,” said Dave Kass, QA1’s Marketing Manager. “We’ve always had a great turnout and fun event at our old building and can’t wait to see people’s reactions to our brand-new facility and all of the opportunities it offers.”

To take part in the free cruise from QA1 to Street Machine Summer Nationals, drivers can register via QA1’s Eventbrite page. Taking part in the cruise will also provide preferred entrance to the event if drivers have registered early.
