As a worldwide leader in the development of performance thermal tuning and acoustic control products, Design Engineering (DEI) is sharing its expertise and product resources with students at Ohio Technical College (OTC) to help them prepare for successful automotive and powersports careers. This private, accredited technical college located close to DEI in nearby Cleveland, Ohio, provides a well-rounded education in all major areas of auto mechanics: traditional, classic and alternative fuel, collision and restoration, welding, racing-performance, diesel mechanics and the exclusive BMW training center. The school also is well-known for its PowerSport Institute, a unique program that covers repair of most major brands of motorcycle and powersport equipment – Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha and more.
Recently, three staff from DEI: Mike Zenone, business development manager and Boom Mat product manager; Steve Garrett, DEI art director and media coordinator; and Dan Stark, DEI technical support and customer service representative, spent time at Ohio Technical College training the college’s instructors on DEI’s and Boom Mat’s thermal and acoustic performance product lines, Ny-Trex nitrous and Ny-Trex Diesel products, Radiator Relief and related thermal additives and CryO2 intake cooling systems and accessories. The training reinforced how DEI-branded products can be used for custom, race and stock vehicles to enhance audio sound, dampen vibration, improve HP or provide component protection for long-term durability and high performance.
“We are excited about this partnership with such a fine college that consistently provides top-quality, highly prepared technicians and mechanics,” said Garrett. “Our commitment is to provide products on an as-needed basis for the college’s project vehicles and assist with products and training from DEI Powersports for their first class PowerSport Institute. Our goal is to build excitement about our products, to educate how they can be used for traditional repair to the most technically advanced race vehicle and to support the enthusiasm and growth of the youth in the aftermarket.”
