About Us

Kaplhenke Racing LLC was founded by Ben Kaplan in 2006 after realizing consumer interest in specialized parts for Volvo brand vehicles despite limited commercial offerings. 

We began as a part-time effort to offer high quality components to fellow Volvo enthusiasts. Over the last decade, we have grown into a full-time operation with our own CNC-equipped manufacturing facility and industrial space. In addition to our Volvo-centric products, we have expanded our operations to provide engineering and manufacturing services to other specialized automotive companies, as well as food industry and government clients. 

We always seek to improve our offerings and build our capabilities through continuous reinvestment in the business. Our goal is to manufacture as many products in house as possible and if we need additional support, we aim to utilize other local small businesses. We are located in Rockville, Maryland in the Washington DC metropolitan area. 

Our in-house capabilities include:

  • Tube Bending
  • Tube Notching
  • TIG Welding
  • MIG Welding
  • CNC Machining
  • Turning
  • Digitizing
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Engineering and Design
