SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Valley Towing, a Revstone Company, will be headed to the 2010 SEMA Show in Las Vegas with sales up, increased inventory, and a strong balance sheet - good news for a company that only months ago was losing money for the third year in a row.  And while sales for the 2010 season have improved, forecasts based on current orders for Valley indicate a record year for 2011.

"It has been a rapid turnaround for Valley," says Mike McCann, Director of Sales and Marketing for Valley. "Valley Towing has returned to a position of industry leadership with new product development and increased production levels to meet the high demands for these great Valley Towing products."

"Under Revstone's ownership we have strengthened our inventory and implemented product and distribution innovations that will drive down production costs," added Bob LaCourciere, President of Revstone's Performance Manufacturing & Technology Group (RPM Tec), which includes Valley.  "This translates into increased value for our customers, and into orders for the 2011 season that have exceeded our expectations."

In addition to Valley Towing, the RPM Tec Group includes Arrow Racing Engines and Power-Tec Engineering.
