CRX Engines Expands North American Manufacturing: News From FNA GROUP Press Release

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

Motor shortages and global allocations have put many companies in the pressure washing, paver sealing, and soft washing industry in a bind.

Since 2020, things have changed in pressure washing equipment! Motors that were available on a regular basis have now become near impossible to get! Parts for those motors has also come up short as well.

CRX Engines have been the first motor to step in at a much needed time in the pressure washing industry to provide massive value to the professional washers.

CRX Engines are manufactured by FNA GROUP. FNA Group is one of the most vertically integrated manufacturers of power equipment operating under many brands of motors, pumps, and equipment that is private label for some of the largest brands in the world.

With these changes we are happy to know that we should not have to worry about global allocations, or availability to our industry. We believe that FNA Group, CRX ENGINES could be the future name you think of when you think of our industry as a whole. As other companies continue to force allocations and get behind on consumer demand, FNA Group once again has stepped up for the industry that has been overlooked drastically when it comes to single cylinder and v-twin engines.

Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin (March 23, 2023) FNA Group has decided to move the manufacture of critical components including internal combustion engines to North America. This decision allows the company to strengthen its supply chain and better control costs. The move allows FNA Group to field a more robust Research and Development (R&D) team close to its manufacturing facilities to innovate new and more efficient products including internal combustion engines.

“The COVID pandemic hammered home the challenges of offshore product development and manufacturing,” says William Alexander, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “We think the environment is right to move our manufacturing closer to home so we can continue to design, engineer and sell the best products imaginable.” While competitors have stalled manufacturing capacity and product development, especially for internal combustion engines, FNA Group is convinced they are better able to serve their customers and markets by ramping up nearshore manufacturing plants. The decision will solidify supply chain, shorten lead times, enhance quality control, and contain cost on finished goods for their customers. The move also makes it easier to develop projects with partners and fine-tune processes.

“We are proud of this opportunity to grow our manufacturing footprint in North America,” says Chris Alexander, Vice President of Business Development, “as we nearshore our supply chain, we plan to be more available to our customers, support hundreds more families, make a positive impact on the communities we serve, and create a great value to the marketplace.” FNA Group, the market leader in pressure washers, is one of the most vertically integrated power equipment manufacturers in the industry. The decision reinforces their market position while better controlling the supply chain and hastening their R&D roadmap.
