Now available, a set of eight X2 valves can be yours at the extraordinary value of $250 for a Small Block Chevy and you can take advantage of some professional valvetrain tutelage in the form of on-the-phone support from Marty Zimmerman.

Xceldyne was named the top business for the fourth quarter by DavidsonWorks, a partnership of private and public resources delivering workforce development solutions and improvements for individuals and businesses within the county. The organization’s goal is to stimulate economic growth by providing a skilled workforce that exceeds business needs for the foreseeable future.

Criteria for the award were developed by the JobLink Business Solutions Team, which is made up of DavidsonWorks, Davidson County Community College, the NC Division of Employment Security and the NC Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

Xceldyne was recognized as a business that acts as an ambassador for other businesses in our area, promoting our experience and success in providing a better outlook for local manufacturers.

In recent months, we’ve also served as a work experience site for a community college student studying administration, and we participated in a customized training program offered through Davidson County Community College. In addition, we worked with DavidsonWorks on its on-the-job training program. Continue reading
