Rochester, NY – September 15, 2014:
Torq-Masters Technology, the developer of the Aussie locker announced the retirement of Bill Cole, founder and owner of the company.  “After many years in the off road industry and having passed the personal 70 year old milestone it was time for younger ownership to take over the company. 

The company announced the sale of Torq-Masters Aussie lockers to woman business entrepreneur Cora Jokinen.  Cora is a long time Offroad enthusiast and Aussie sponsored Rock Crawler.  Cora says of Torq-Masters: Bill Cole along with his team of engineers, technical services and customer support personnel has built the USA made Aussie Locker brand to be known Worldwide for superior strength, performance and reliability. This team will continue to provide World Class products and support to its customers and dealers under the new ownership.

Cora announced the availability of a complete line of JK lockers for the Dana 30 and new Dana 44 JK differentials.  These exciting new models are available with special introductory pricing at www.aussielocker.com or through our authorized dealer network. 

The new Torq-Masters is committed to Customer Service, Dealers, Product Support and keeping the Aussie Locker 100% made in the USA. The new mailing address is available on www.AussieLocker.com. Phone numbers will remain the same.

Well well...

I'd heard a rumor that there was a transition in progress. I had no idea it might be to one of our own! Congradulations!
