In 1952 our founder and Grandfather, J.B. Baggett, was a pioneer in the recycled bumper business.  J.B. was very successful in the west Texas area working with large bumper distributors.  Following his dream, entrepreneurial spirit and drive to succeed, J.B. moved to Houston, Tx in 1972 to open his own bumper business.

In 1980, with the business exploding, J.B. hired his son, Dale Haygood, to oversee the business. With Dale as General Manager, business increased but a shift arrived in the industry.

Rubber bumpers arrived on the scene. Keeping up with the changing industry, Dale opened a rubber bumper recycling plant to go hand & hand with the chrome plant. In 1990, Dale started exploring the antique and Hot Rod community. He found tremendous opportunity and need for restoration chrome! In the last 90s,our family experienced two devastating set-backs. Both JB and Dale passed due to illness. At that time, they called upon their son in law, Bobby to take over the business. He looked at the way the chrome industry was changing and decided to go into full-time antique and hot-rod restoration. The company was immediately successful, and continues today! Quality Service & Honesty are not just words we use, but a heritage that is passed down to offer you a Superior Product !!
