Flowmaster was founded in 1983 by Ray Flugger in California. It was conceived to be a solution to the growing problems with sound issues at race tracks in California. Flugger refused to accept the status quo of the day and instead pushed the exhaust technology past common thinking. On the way to numerous firsts in the exhaust science of automotive and numerous patents to protect the different technologies used in Flowmaster products. It ushered a revolution in automotive performance exhaust.
The company has two locations with a combined area of 400,000 square feet or 37,000 square meters in Santa Rosa, California, and West Sacramento, California. Flowmaster was manufactured to minimize the California Sprint Car engine noise without the need to sacrifice its performance from extreme back pressure produced by the traditional exhaust systems. From then, Flowmaster became a manufacturer of performance exhaust systems, mufflers, exhaust kits, racing mufflers, stainless steel mufflers, and exhaust accessories for muscle cars, cars, trucks, diesel trucks, SUVs, motorhomes, and most vehicles.
Ray Flugger was the private owner of Flowmaster until 2010 when it was acquired by the B&M Group and now are with three other automotive parts companies, the B&M Racing, Hurst Shifters, and the Hurst Driveline Conversions.
