Walker Manufacturing Co. Overview
Walker Manufacturing Company is the world's leading producer of original and aftermarket automotive exhaust systems. From horse-drawn carriages and Ford's Model T to Jaguar XJ6s and Ford Explorers, Walker's technology and success has matched the ongoing development of a society wholly dependent on motorized vehicles. The company operates three North American distribution centers, engineering facilities in the United States, Australia, Germany, and Japan, and 29 manufacturing operations around the globe (eight in the United States and 21 outside). By 1996 Walker's aftermarket exhaust components were utilized in an estimated 95 percent of all cars and trucks on the road, while its original exhaust parts equipped seven of the 10 best-selling passenger cars and nine of the top-selling light trucks sold nationwide.
