In addition, Power & Performance TV will be broadcast on the COMP Cams, TCI, FAST, RHS, ZEX, and Powerhouse Web sites, as well as the powerTV online video channel network.
"COMP Cams, TCI, and the COMP Performance Group brands are all about innovation," said Chris Douglas, COMP Cams' director of marketing. "We want to build the best parts for our customers, and we want to find the best ways to give them the latest and hottest information. We've realized that online video is an extremely powerful way to communicate with our customers. We are looking forward to using powerTV to launch our own video channel and to allow our customers to interact with our brands in an entirely new and powerful way."
In addition to the racing and performance content that COMP will create using powerTV's innovative user video technology, COMP Performance Group customers will be able to watch, share, and upload videos of their own performance rides, car builds, racing experiences, or tips and tricks. As well as that, customers will be able to browse and watch hundreds of COMP Cams, TCI, ZEX, RHS, FAST, and Powerhouse technical videos, installs, new product reviews, and dyno tests. Users will also be able to embed Power & Performance TV in their own Web site or Myspace pages. For more information, visit www.powerperformancetv.com.
CoasT To CoastGoodmark Industries, Inc. is no stranger to the custom classic truck community. Their high-quality truck parts have helped keep, revive, and flat out build more classic haulers than any one man can dare to count. To help keep up with the demand for their high-quality sheetmetal and trim for GM trucks, they have decided to expand their operations to include a West Coast home base. That's right, the Lawrenceville, Georgia-based company is taking things coast to coast with the opening of their new Norwalk, California-based building, which will mark the company's second location. The reason for the new building is to help service their customers to the fullest potential. The plan of action is for the Georgia-based company to service the East Coast and the California-based location to serve the West Coast. For more information about the new building, call the Norwalk Goodmark facility direct at 562-282-0284, or jump on Goodmark's Web site at www.goodmark-industries.com.
