About the business:
DeatschWerks, located in Oklahoma City, has been creating and selling high-performance fuel injectors since 2004. Originally a personal hobby of CEO David Deastch, the company now serves customers in 13 countries. Deastch has a degree in microbiology and worked in a cancer lab before starting DeatschWerks.

DeatschWerks recently landed contracts to supply injectors to the Department of Defense.
