Congratulations on Your Retirement, DTS Co-Founder Steve Pruitt!
DTS named Best Places to Work OC 2023

After 33+ years at DTS, Steve Pruitt, co-founder and Chief Sales & Business Development Officer, has retired. Steve, along with two other crash test engineers, Tim Kippen and Mike Beckage, began DTS in 1990 in an office above a garage. Today DTS is a successful global company with headquarters in Seal Beach, California and 7 technical centers around the world.

In his parting email Steve said,

“I have enjoyed working with you all over many years of crash, blast, and other testing – WorldSID, WIAMan, dosimeters and many other product developments. This is truly a great profession and industry. I can honestly say that everyone I have worked with has been dedicated to helping to make the world safer for us humans, no matter what kind of vehicle or sport we subject ourselves to. I have helped test everything from roller coasters and Olympic bobsleds, to ejection seats and stunt men to athletes and race cars to tanks to rockets and many more I can’t remember. Truly the best job ever!”

Steve, thank you for helping to create such a phenomenal company that advances human safety. You will be greatly missed, but your legacy lives on!
