Effective June 1, Mike Haist will oversee the R&D department at Factory Connection, replacing former engineer Mr. Tanno who has moved back to Japan for family obligations. In Tanno's absense, Haist, who has been serving as GM of Factory Connection Canada, has been assisting with R&D projects and his technical training and knowledge make him the right fit for the job permanently.
Factory Connection is committed to evolving their suspension settings and suspension performance products to new industry leading levels. Factory Connection's Dyno and Data Acquisition programs will be led by Mike. The involvement with OEM's and field testing with leading professional teams: GEICO / HONDA / FACTORY CONNECTION, FMF / KTM Off-Road and Am Pro Yamaha will be included in his responsibilities. Mike Haist will be working directly with Factory Connection's Manufacturing Manager Terry Edgecomb and Owner / President Rick "Ziggy" Zielfelder.
