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.
