LOS ANGELES SLEEVE CO. was founded in 1945 by family patriarch Nicholas W. Metchkoff. A family owned business for a lasting four generations, L.A. SLEEVE originated in a small Los Angeles factory producing cylinder sleeves for the automotive and tractor industries.

In 1950, Nicholas’ son, Gary Metchkoff entered into the business as L.A. SLEEVE expanded into the world of automotive racing, and the heavy duty truck industry.

During the 1960′s, they exported sleeves to South America and then worldwide, thus establishing ourselves into the global economy. Beginning in 1968, the manufacturer diversified into the motorcycle market, which has grown to become the renowned power sports industry we know presently.

Today, the company manufactures centrifugally spun-cast cylinder sleeves for an assortment of industries. The main ones being automotive, heavy duty, industrial, motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile and marine. We provide cylinder liners for original equipment manufacturers to a single custom designed sleeve.

The company  continues to be owned and operated by the third and fourth generation of the Metchkoff family and are proud of their quality manufacturing, excellent service and modern technology.
