QA1 to Host Open House at New Lakeville, MN Facility

QA1 has announced the company will host its first open house event since the completion of its state-of-the-art facility in 2020. The company’s space will be available to visitors from 7–9 a.m. local time on Friday, July 16. Guided tours of the facility will be followed by a #goDRIVEit cruise to the Street Machine Summer Nationals at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.  

The open house will allow enthusiasts to see QA1’s development center, manufacturing floor, and more. Attendees will see how QA1’s products are designed and manufactured in the Lakeville, Minnesota facility and will be able to explore the 100,000-plus square foot building. Refreshments and donuts will be available. 

QA1’s upcoming open house marks the return of the company’s annual event after a two-year hiatus due to the transition to the new building in 2019 and COVID-19 precautions in 2020. 

“Our open house has always been an event we love to host. It gives us an opportunity to share the pride we take in building QA1 products with area enthusiasts,” QA1 Marketing Manager Dave Kass said. “We’ve always had a great turnout and fun event at our old building and can’t wait to see people’s reactions to our brand new facility and all of the opportunities it offers.”  

To take part in the free cruise from QA1 to Street Machine Summer Nationals, drivers can register via QA1’s Eventbrite page. Taking part in the cruise will also provide preferred entrance to the event if drivers have registered early.
