Marken Performance and Restoration Inc. was founded in April 1995 by Mark Drinkwalter and Ken Hopcraft. Mark became the sole owner in 1996.
After outgrowing its previous locations on Kingsway Drive and Manitou Drive, Marken Performance settled at 123 Ottawa Street in Kitchener.
In 2002 the business moved to its current 3500 square foot location at 123 Ottawa Street in Kitchener. This location is still working well with a full time counter-person servicing a 1000 square foot showroom offering Domestic and Import Performance parts and accessories, as well as truck and 4x4 parts.

Seeing the need for a Chassis dyno equipped with an Eddy Brake, Marken Performance stepped up and installed one in 2007. This added another service consisting of custom computer programming for fuel injection. This dyno can measure torque and horsepower to see what the recently added performance modification has done for customers at the rear wheels.
