About Prime ONE Contracting


Prime ONE Contracting supplies, installs and supports automotive testing equipment. Our diverse product / service portfolio offers you new products as well as upgrades. We support the growth of small and large companies alike, with responsive and personal touches in every interaction. 

POC continues working on cutting-edge technology that will increase asset performance and drive accurate testing results while offering premium vehicle test systems in the areas listed below.


1. How long has Prime One Contracting and AIP been in business?

Prime ONE Contracting was started in 1999 by Navy veteran Phil Reuben. We became the exclusive North American distributor of AIP Automotive in 2008 (an automotive industrial test equipment company founded in 1994).

2. What kind of support and services are provided following product purchase?

Please visit the equipment services page for more information on this topic.

3. Does POC have a test lab?

POC does not currently have a test lab. However, POC can arrange for testing from APL.

4. How many service employees are available to maintain products?

POC-AIP has a staff of certified service technicians to service and support its products. Prime One Contracting can dispatch technicians anywhere in North and South America.

5. What is the current equipment delivery/lead times?

The global supply chain has been hit hard in the past few years. POC is working hard with its partners to improve lead times for the delivery of its products. Prime One’s lead times are on par with other test equipment manufacturers and we are looking for paths to further decrease the lead times (i.e. buying in bulk).

6. What is the typical lifespan of a dynamometer?

For a properly maintained dynamometer (undergoing yearly preventative maintenance), the lifespan of the dynamometer should exceed 20 to 30 years. Prime One can perform yearly maintenance (or training for customer-performed maintenance) to ensure long life of the equipment.

7, What is emergency service response time?
  • POC always strives to respond to EVERY inquiry within 36 hours.
  • With the purchase of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) response time can be drastically reduced.
    • Varying SLA’s (Level I – III) can be purchased, ensuring expedited service.
    • These service packages can be explored on our SLA contracts page.
  • POC has an after-hours phone number that can be called at any time, however, the earliest a solution could be offered would be the following day.
