A family-owned business from the start, the story of Quest Bowhunting® begins in 1966. Louis "Leo" Grace Sr. started Grace Engineering in Memphis, Michigan. Over the years, the company grew and became known for developing innovative manufacturing practices and quality products.
The Grace family's homestead in Memphis and the original building that housed Grace Engineering was once an old flour mill that had been built in the 1860's. A ledger was found on the premises that contained Thomas Edison's signature. Edison grew up in the nearby city of Port Huron, Michigan and would bring his family's wheat to the mill to be ground. Thomas Edison had a strong passion for innovation, and Grace Engineering and Quest have that same passion.
In the 1980's, Louis "Lou" Grace Jr., Leo's son, took over Grace Engineering and further grew the business, focusing on precision manufacturing for demanding markets in the medical, hydraulic, and automotive industries, as well as credit card embossing. Lou Grace, along with his sons Matt and Nate, founded G5 Outdoors® in 2000 to market what they thought was the proverbial Better Mousetrap: an all-steel broadhead. Then in 2009, G5 introduced Quest Bowhunting to the archery world. Its mission was simple: to bring a bow built with the highest level of craftsmanship and quality the industry has seen for a good price.
