Something similar...yes. Waag isn't huge like Warn is or even any of the suspension companies. You can't judge a brand by their facility... They don't need much to make their product...same goes for alot of other places like James Duff or Early Classic Industries.

Kelloggs in Battle Creek, MI. You think it would be all nice and clean looking, which it is on the inside. But the outside looked like an abandoned mill. lol

A lot of badass off road rigs come from what look like run down shops..

I wanted to go to work for a place in Colorado Springs, made some SICK rigs, but it was a 4 bay shop that looked all run down. Don't get me wrong, i would have gone and worked there in a heartbeat if he had ever called me back.

i work across the street from McLeod driveline components. The place is smaller than i expected it to be.

Im also around the corner from Currie. They have a nice facility and a ton of space for their parts.

All they do is bend and weld metal into bumpers. How much room do they need.
