About Spring Works

How It All Started - Our Story


Our founder Leo Beck was inspired to start Spring Works because it combined everything he knew and loved—cars, metal, art, and helping people. His love for cars goes back to when he was just 13 years old and put a motor into his first car—a 1978 Honda Civic.

He was introduced to arc welding at the age of 14 and ornamental iron work a couple of years later. The experience of being able to create and change something left a lasting impression on Leo. In 1986 he learned leaf spring manufacturing work while working at a blacksmith shop, which put together all the pieces that would become the foundation of Spring Works.

Spring Works was founded in 1993 in a single bay within a trailer repair and part shop located in Windsor, CA. Within the year it moved to its own 800 square foot warehouse space in Santa Rosa, equipped with nothing but a 4-foot tall red toolbox, a drill press, a chop saw, a jack, 2 jack stands, an arch table and a hammer. The business started small with just springs. Leo’s unwavering commitment to honest work and customer service combined with his experience led to quick expansion. He was able to start adding tools and equipment over the next few years. In 1995, Spring Works expanded into custom suspension fabrication and custom coils. Wheel alignments, differential repair, and brake services came soon after that.

Today, Spring Works continues to grow while still keeping a focus on service with integrity. Our 25 years of specialized suspension and brake experience, suspension fabrication knowledge, and leaf and coil manufacturing experience set us apart from our competitors. But the real difference is our focus on our customers and our commitment to handling every job with integrity and care. The values that helped Leo succeed in the early days of the business are the same values that keep us moving forward.
