Banks Power Products
Fifty years of engineering milestones for Banks Power president and founder Gale Banks began at age 14 with an engine
teardown of his mother's '31 Ford Model A that resulted in an increase of more than 40 horsepower. Just two years later, in
1958, Gale was officially in the engine business, first in Lynwood, California, then in San Gabriel. He remains the hands-on
president to the 200-employee-strong manufacturing and engineering complex that today occupies 12 acres in the San Gabriel
Valley town of Azusa.
