About American Rotors
Our founder, Chuck Stark, started American Rotors in 1960. Those early years in Chicago were spent stacking rotors for companies who did their own casting.

Quality is a continuous activity integrating people, communication and process control, ensuring that each customer’s needs for quality castings and services are met and delivered on without defects. That’s why American Rotors is adept at maintaining very tight tolerances, visually inspecting each individual piece at the time of production. Customized testing or dimensioning programs are implemented as required by the customer. Our ultimate goal is to find the most cost effective design of the product and the most efficient manufacturing process.
