Thermal Research and Development was started in 1983 by Chuck Asher in a small shop in Camarillo, CA. As demand for exhaust manufacturing grew, so did the size and scope of the company. Over three decades Chuck steadily grew the business and customer base, creating one of the premier aftermarket exhaust manufacturers in the United States. In 2012, Bloom and Wilkerson Enterprises joined Thermal Research and Development, expanding the company's size and capabilities. In looking at the landscape of new vehicles in the market and evolving demands of the enthusiast customer, we have continued to invest in the latest technology and equipment. With an expert team of MIG and TIG welders as well as seasoned fabricators, Thermal R&D is well positioned to continue building on its reputation for producing high quality performance exhaust.
