The business was established in 2001 under the name of B&D Enterprises. In 2006, the business name changed to Fair Valley Performance & Repair (FVP). Currently Dennis Frey, his wife Jennifer, and the team of Scott Luck, Travis Meinholz, Casey Schroeder, Greg Sprecher, Gavin Meeker, Drew Schulenburg, Ashley Frey, Austin Perry, Scott Thompson, and Ryan Devine and operate FVP out of Sauk City, Wisconsin USA.
Dennis Frey attended and graduated from Madison Area Technical College and received an associate degree in Diesel Technology in 1992. During that time he was employed by Diesel Injection Service (Windsor, WI), a diesel fuel injection and turbocharger repair and distribution facility. There, Dennis began working as a diesel fuel injection technician and evolved through the company as a trainer, technical support manager, and diesel service manager. In 2004, Dennis was awarded the Henry Ortner Jr. Memorial Technical Award. This annual award is presented for outstanding technical contributions to the Association of Diesel Specialists, the Diesel Engine, and Fuel Injection Industry. After 15 years of employment, Dennis resigned from DIS, pursued his dream, and established FVP. Scott, Travis, Casey, Chris, Greg, and Gavin also attended and graduated from Madison Area Technical College and received associate degrees in Diesel Technology
In 2000, B&D Enterprises worked with Rodney and Carla Kern (Kern’s Electronics) developing a computerized data acquisition system for truck and tractor pullers. This system was named DATALOG Peak Performance. Kern’s Electronics began manufacturing and B&D began marketing these systems. The first system was sold in May, 2001. Since then, systems continue to be sold and supported throughout North America and Europe. DATALOG Peak Performance continues to evolve into the premier computerized data acquisition system for tractor and truck pullers.
DIESEL COMPONENT SERVICE CENTER: In August, 2007, construction and renovation of a new office and shop (FVP-1) was completed which launched the new diesel performance and repair facility. FVP currently specializes in diesel tractor and truck pulling diesel fuel injection, fuel supply, turbocharger, water injection, and data acquisition systems. Service work also includes repairs and rebuilds original equipment (stock) diesel fuel injection systems, turbochargers, and diesel engines.
FVP is a Distributor for Alliant Power (diesel parts & components), Steinbauer Tuning Technologies (agricultural & heavy truck performance modules), Premier Performance and Diesel Performance Parts (diesel pickup truck performance products and accessories), and Schaeffer’s Lubricants.
DIESEL DRIVE-IN SERVICE CENTER: In March, 2014, construction and renovation of a second office and shop (FVP-2) was completed. This expanded the service bay activity which includes diagnostic and repair of diesel cars, pickups, mid-range, and class 8 trucks. FVP is an authorized Bosch DVD (Diesel Vehicle Diagnostic) Service Center.
To allow FVP to operate from there rural home location (town and state zoning restrictions), the homestead barn which is located on the north side of County Road B, was completely renovated into modern office and shop. Growing up and raised on a dairy farm, Dennis saw sentimental value in this old building and is proud that it is again a productive building while maintaining the farm landscape look. This building serves as the Diesel Component Service Center. The second facility located about 100 yards away on the south side of County Road B serves as the Diesel Drive-In Service Center.
In 1999, Dennis built Agent Orange (Allis Chalmers, 190XT) for the Badger State Tractor Pullers (BSTP) Light Limited Super Stock class. Agent Orange won the BSTP points championship in 2003 and 2007, was also the finals winner at the 2006 Gordyville, IL Midwest Winter Nationals and 2007 DuQuoin Southern Illinois Shootout. Agent Orange however has been parked since 2011 to allow more focus on the business. Stay tuned though for the debut of a new project! Prior to Agent Orange, Dennis had been pulling tractors at the farm stock level since 1984. Years of pulling experience has provided knowledge that allows FVP to assist our customers in many ways.
We consider FVP as a very personalized and knowledgeable business. We strive on the highest quality possible and with our customer’s best interest always in mind. We’re looking forward to serving you for your diesel performance or equipment repair needs!
