What we say is what we do
For more than a century, trucks have been rolling down the road, delivering goods to the world. In that time, we've watched fuel prices double, then double, and then double again – prompting business to turn its attention to the development of equipment and devices designed to improve fuel efficiency. From side skirts and boat-tails, to trailer design and even the aerodynamic tractors of the 1980s, we've seen their impact on fuel efficiency – and the transportation industry.
At Slipstreem Aerodynamics, we're making history, too. Focusing our efforts on making trailers as efficient as the modern tractor. We're not alone. Grand Island Express has seen the logic in our approach – offering us the opportunity to put our ideas to the test by running our devices in their fleet. As a result, we've seen great success and excellent fuel economy, along with reduced driver fatigue, with our unique brand of boat-tails that make trucks much easier to drive in the wind or any conditions.
We remain committed to finding new and better solutions to the problems our customers face – as the most technologically advanced supplier of quality aerodynamic components for the trailer industry in North America. That means responding quickly to customer demands with products that meet their needs and exceed their expectations, and bringing them a nationwide capability to assure reliable delivery of quality components when and where they need them – as promised, when promised. Because at Slipstreem Aerodynamics, what we say is what we do. Count on it.
Slipstreem Aerodynamics is committed to providing world-class products and services to the transportation industry that will result in a reduced carbon footprint and significant fuel cost savings for our customers.
Slipstreem will contribute to a cleaner environment through the development, marketing and sales of aerodynamic devices for our transportation industry partners.
Mr. Holubar grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa about 1 hour away from Walcott, the largest truck stop in America. Rob has been involved in some form of aerodynamic and mechanical performance oriented industries for most of his life. Rob originaly mastered his study of fluid dynamics with thousands of hours spent on flow benches for engine development when he was owner of Dynoformance, a racing engine constructor.
In 2004, Rob began to explore the world of aerodynamic testing and research after he built his first home made 1/64th scale wind tunnel. What started as a hobby, soon grew into an entrepreneurial project that secured his first few development contracts with privateer motorsport teams around the country. As an experienced consultant and aerodynamicist, today Rob continues to provide a boutique solutions oriented practice that is well known in the motorsport industry.
Rob's passion for everything aerodynamic led him to theorize and author a patent in the growing field of drag reduction technologies for tractor trailers. He currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska and has been contracted by several companies developing technologies for the trucking industry. SlipStreem Aerodynamics was created in 2007, as the holding company for various technologies that Mr. Holubar plans to bring to the marketplace. He has since built and operated several wind tunnels, which has gained him a very solid understanding of fluid dynamic theory . SlipStreem boasts practical and real time in house aerodynamic research and testing capabilities that manage an active pipeline of projects.
Mr. Holubar has also owned two companies prior to Slipstreem, both start-ups and both very successful, which has given him the real world business experience to launch his current company.
A graduate of The University of Nebraska with a BSBA in business administration and a minor in statistics. Also a high achiever, he attended the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Florida graduating with honors, 2nd out of a class of 140.
