About Banks Power
Over fifty years of engineering milestones for Banks Power president and founder Gale Banks began at age 14 with an engine teardown of his mother's '31 Ford Model A that resulted in an increase of 65 horsepower for a total of 105 horsepower. Just two years later, in 1958, Gale was officially in the engine business, first in Lynwood, California, then in San Gabriel. He remains the hands-on president to the 100+ employee-strong manufacturing and engineering complex that today occupies 12 acres in the San Gabriel Valley town of Azusa.
