History of Hyperco

Hyperco manufactures premium spring components designed for peak performance in extreme situations, including motorsports, off-road, and powersports. Read on to learn more about our history and legacy of winning.

A Heritage of Winning

The racing suspension springs, now known as Hypercoils, were pioneered by Jim Fielder in the early 1960s. He was instrumental in developing the spring designs and their dominance in the motor racing industry. The spring designs and technology that originated from Fielder have evolved into what is today known as the Hyperco brand.

In 1996, Hyperco joined MW Industries, Inc. (now MW Components) to become one of the top spring and specialty fastener manufacturers in the nation. Today, Hyperco products are engineered and manufactured at our sister locations of Matthew Warren Spring in Logansport, IN and Pontotoc Spring in Pontotoc, MS.

Our high-performance suspension spring product line has grown and evolved over the years. Hyperco is still proudly known as the racing spring company. Now, we use that same winning technology from Motorsports, in our suspension springs for Street Performance, Road Cars, Off-Road, and Powersports markets.

Hyperco springs are proudly designed and manufactured in the U.S.A.
