Lokar-new-headquartersBy Martha Maglone, September 10, 2014

Lokar has moved its headquarters to a new 53,000sq ft facility in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The company was originally founded twenty-six years ago in Walnut, California. Four years later they moved to a 6,000sq ft facility on Murdock Drive in Knoxville and expanded several times over the intervening period. Finally they outgrew their 18,900sq ft base and were delighted when they found the right property in the same district.

Lokar-assembly-warehouse Operating in three buildings that total 53,000sq ft, the company’s new home is situated on 6.5 acres of real estate aptly named Quality Lane, allowing the firm sufficient room for future expansion.

Company owner, Debbie Walls, says, “Naturally we’re excited about this new chapter in Lokar’s history and we look forward to seeing our customers visit us whenever they are in the area. Importantly, we remain true to our motto: committed to providing Quality…Plain & Simple®.”

Lokar-MfgsideLokar’s most visible success has been in the production of shifters, throttle assemblies, kick-down systems and a wide array of mounting brackets.
