Ilium Works

RM Garrison Machining Purchases Ilium Works

RM Garrison Machining Inc. (RMG), owner of Accutronix and Headwinds has added Ilium Works (also of California) to its burgeoning portfolio of parts and accessory brands.

Founded in 1985, Ilium Works (IW) is a manufacturer of aftermarket billet BMW Motorcycle parts and accessories - products such as grips, foot pegs, floorboards, risers and engine guards. "The Ilium program will complement the parts produced in our Accutronix motorcycle parts division - our specialty aftermarket parts brand for Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle and other brand models," said RMG's Shane Williams.

RMG acquired the custom headlight bucket manufacturer Headwinds Lighting in 2019.  

The acquisition of IW will add a Mazak HCN 5000 Horizontal Machine Center, a Mazak QTN 200 NY Lathe, (2) Haas VF4 Vertical Machining Centers and a range of complementary secondary machining and fabrication equipment to RMG's existing equipment lineup, increasing the manufacturing capacity at RMG's Phoenix, Arizona headquarters.

Accutronix +6" Forward Controls

Owned by the Williams family, the cornerstone of the business is All American Billet, which was founded in 2013. Accutronix was purchased in 2015, followed by Valley Machine Works in 2019.

The family bought Joel Felty's Headwinds Lighting in 2020 and since that acquisition has continued to expand rapidly, starting All American Chassis in 2020 and All American Hot Rod in 2022, before adding WAM Bumpers later the same year.
