About Borgeson

Founded in Torrington, CT, Borgeson Universal began manufacturing universal joints for lathes and milling machines in 1914. By the 1920’s, Ford was using Borgeson universal joints for the steering on some of their prototypes. Borgeson Universal continued to develop and refine u-joints for industrial, aerospace and OEM vehicle applications. When purchased in 1982 by the current owners, two avid Street Rodders, Borgeson soon began developing applications for Street Rods. Borgeson has continually improved and developed the original needle bearing universal joints into the most reliable, smoothest operating, strongest u-joints available today.

Seeking to expand, Borgeson ventured into manual steering gears with the acquisition of Mullins Steering Gears in 2001 and in July 2012 Borgeson acquired the original equipment, tooling, drawings and the OE manufacturing rights for all Saginaw manual steering gear boxes. In 2016 Borgeson relocated from its home of over 100 years in Torrington CT and expanded into a new 101,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Travelers Rest SC. This 101,000 square foot plant was designed and built for increased production and capacity to better serve our customers. We use the latest manufacturing and inventory control procedures to maintain stock, and take great pride in being able to ship most orders placed by 1:30 EST the same day. Today, Borgeson is the leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket steering components for the street rod, racing, specialty automotive, OEM and pickup truck markets.

However, its effectiveness is only as good as the installation.
