The Ak-Chin Industrial Park Board announced that Advanced Performance LLC has leased Suite B in the Mesquite Building at 12501 N. Murphy Road in Ak-Chin’s industrial park, Santa Cruz Commerce Center.
Advanced Performance offers custom performance engine building and motorcycle repair. Co-owners Steve Trivisonno and Jeff Hamilton started their business in 2014, after training and teaching together at Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) in Phoenix.
“We started working on little projects for some weekend cash and found that we really liked working together,” Trivisonno said.
Both Trivisonno and Hamilton are certified motorcycle mechanics with high-level certifications. This makes them qualified to build and service such leading brands as Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Harley Davidson, Victory, Polaris Sea Doo, Can Am and BMW.
As projects steadily grew, the business owners turned their part-time hobby into a full-time business about a year and a half ago.
“We offer more than just basic motorcycle repair services,” Trivisonno said. “Rather, we provide the expertise necessary to get the best performance out of your street bike, dirt bike, ATV, side by side or watercraft.”
According to Trivissono, a lot of current business is already coming from Maricopa and they have some government contracts, including maintaining the ATV fleet for the Department of Homeland Security, Ajo Station. In addition, they have loyal customers from Tempe, Chandler and Gilbert who are willing to make the drive for their expertise.
After outgrowing two garage spaces and storage units, the co-owners decided to find a brick-and-mortar location for their business. That’s when they found the Mesquite Building to have the right combination of price and location.
“We do good quality work at an affordable price, said Trivisonno, “and we think our new location may help us attract more business from Casa Grande.”
