ProTorque Ramps Up Torque Converter Production at Boninfante Friction Facility

Philadelphia, PA – May 21, 2020 – PROTORQUE, leading manufacturer of performance torque converters for street and race cars, partnered with Boninfante Friction, the undisputed kings of high-horsepower clutch technology, in January of 2020. Now, production is quickly ramping up as both entities continue to collaborate under one roof.

While many businesses are currently challenged with shaky futures and economic uncertainty, ProTorque is ensuring growth for the company, its customers, and the racing industry – all while keeping manufacturing firmly based in the United States.

Moving ProTorque from its former home on Long Island in New York to Boninfante’s state-of-the-art facility in Pennsylvania took a significant amount of time and manpower. Government mandated regulations surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak and restrictions on operating procedures slowed the progress initially, but ProTorque’s founder Joe Rivera is keeping ProTorque moving forward while supporting American manufacturing. The global supply chain has also been affected by the pandemic, but both ProTorque and Boninfante are committed to finding unique, creative, and effective solutions to reduce delays.

Now, ProTorque’s operations are getting back to capacity. Rivera is hard at work hustling to get orders out the door while also focusing on research and development for new, innovative product lines.

Racers are encouraged to take advantage of the unexpected Coronavirus downtime and get their orders in as soon as possible so that they can be ready to go once racing resumes. To learn more, or to order, please visit or call ProTorque directly at (631) 218-8700.
