Chuck Olson has joined QA1 as director of engineering. Olson will lead QA1’s design and manufacturing engineers and is responsible for new product development and continuous improvement.
“I’m very excited for the opportunity to develop new products for an extremely diverse line of high-quality parts for the circle track, drag racing, street performance, street rod and industrial markets,” Olson said. “We have an excellent engineering team at QA1, and we’re all focused on bringing the best possible products to market.”
Olson brings a wealth of experience to his new position, according to QA1, having worked in contract manufacturing and product design for the past 22 years. He also has been active in dirt circle track racing for much of the last 25 years and is an avid enthusiast.
“(Olson’s) experience and leadership will be invaluable as we continue expanding our lines by designing and manufacturing innovative products,” said Melissa Scoles, president of QA1.
Olson races a Wissota Modified with his father and uncle as a summer hobby, according to QA1.
