Aerospace Components was incorporated in 1986 by Al and Kim Kussy, beginning with government contracting as a mill certified shop. Some of their early products were specialty items for NASA, including parts used in defense and guidance systems, as well as components for the space station and shuttle program.
Al and Kim are joint owners and officers of Aerospace Components: Al is the design engineer and President, while Kim is the enthusiastic chief marketing and financial officer, as well as the Vice President.
After four years in operation, Aerospace Components was looking to expand its business, and with Al Kussy’s drag racing background dating back to his teenage years, they sought to break into that market and began producing five-inch front wheels for dragsters. After their success with the wheels they looked for other segments in the market and began producing brake systems–at that time an under-served area of the racing market.
Now with twenty eight years in the industry, Aerospace Components manufactures a wide selection of items including vacuum pumps, fuel pumps, electric water pumps, nitrous bottle mounts, front struts, rear shocks and much more, and it’s all done at their Saint Petersburg, Florida manufacturing facility, where Al, Kim, and their entire team recently opened their doors to Power Automedia for a first-hand look at their operations.
