Based in the Pacific Northwest, MeLe Design Firm is an enthusiast owned boutique design and manufacturing company. We got our start back in late 2017 when we recognized a clear market need in the Subaru arena.
With roots in rally racing proper battery performance was at the top of our list when choosing parts for our builds. Many rally cars require aftermarket size options that don’t fit in the factory battery location. At the time there were no direct-fit mounting solutions available for the most popular performance batteries. The only mounts we could find were flimsy, didn’t fit the battery very well, offered no physical protection, and were hard to install. As we thought about it we believed that a form fitting aluminum mount / box would solve this problem. So we did what any good rally competitor would do - we made one for ourselves. However, other drivers and enthusiasts expressed their need for something like what we had built.
