HISTORY

Roto-Jet Of America Company officially started business in August of 1969  with the importation of a European-produced "batch" parts washer, “The  Dirt-Fighter”.  We attended an automotive show in 1970 and were  swamped with interest from shops who were still using old “soak tank”  cleaning technology and taking hours and sometimes overnight to soak  and then manually rinse parts.  The Roto-Jet changed this to minutes!  The first American-made unit, an RJ-2,  was manufactured in 1973 in Camarillo  CA.  Manufacturing soon moved to Sun  Valley, CA.  In 1978, the company moved to larger  quarters in Burbank CA, where it  stayed until 1997 - at which time we  relocated to our currect location in  Santa Clarita, California.  Our early customers were primarily engine and transmission rebuilders,  including over half the Aamco Transmission shops in the United States,  plus various schools, municipalities and garages.                              When industrial parts cleaning moving  away from the use of hazardous solvents,  we began making units for Fortune 500  companies like General Electric, Ford  Motor Company, General Motors,  Lockheed, Ingersoll-Rand Corporation, and many others. The military discovered how FAST and  THOROUGH our washers were and  suddenly, we were shipping units overseas for cleaning unitized tank engines.
