Phil Wood & Co
Founded in 1971, Phil Wood & Co. is proud to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, American cycling component manufacturer. Our products are made in the USA – they are completely designed, manufactured and assembled in San Jose, California.
Phil Wood & Co. manufactures cycling and related recreation oriented products. We are dedicated to providing products of the highest quality achievable. These products are a result of our designs, the materials we use, and our craftsmanship.
Our goal is to offer with every product: Guaranteed Satisfaction
Our manufacturing facility has advanced step-by-step with our products. Our manufacturing started during an era when manually operated lathes and mills were the norm. During that time, custom made, dedicated purpose equipment was a necessary part of manufacturing. We progressed through this period when Numerical Control, NC, machines programmed with paper tape from teletype machine were state-of-the-art equipment. We are now in an era where we use Computer Numerical Control, CNC, machining and turning centers with special diamond tipped tools. Even with this equipment and technology, we consider each part we make “hand-crafted.” For example: A front hub shell goes through seven unique production stations prior to being assembled. Our current facility makes use of those machines/equipment that most efficiently and uniquely aid in the manufacturing of our products.
Our goal is to offer hand-crafted products with a simple design, the highest quality materials, and the ultimate in durability. To this end, we allocate our available resources first to those areas that place emphasis on design, materials, and production. We specify the characteristics of each and every bearing used in our products. In many cases specific bearings are made exclusively for us to our exacting specifications. We have always demanded the same quality from the bearings we utilize as we demand in our own manufactured parts. This helps to guarantee that no compromises will be made in the production or materials of the product you receive from Phil Wood & Co.
