Mike Copeland started Diversified Creations, in 2004, for his son, Brad. At the time, he was working at General Motors as a performance engineer at the time. He was also Vice President of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering for six years until devoting all his time to growing the family business. Diversified Creation's staff at the beginning was just the three of them, dad, son and mom, in a 2,000-square-feet machine shop near Crystal Gardens Banquet Center in the township. In 2006, the business moved to a larger 7,500-square-feet space on property west of their current 16,000-square-feet location, which they moved to in 2011.
