Edelbrock, LLC Acquires SX Performance

TORRANCE, CA (August 29, 2012) - Edelbrock is excited to announce the acquisition of SX Performance, which was an affiliate of Essex Industries, Inc.

SX Performance has been designing and manufacturing advanced fluid delivery systems for aerospace, military and automotive use for over 60 years. They have a proven track record in aerospace design, manufacturing, quality control, distribution, and customer service while serving some of the largest names in the aerospace and armed forces sector.

Edelbrock is very familiar with SX Performance's products, as they have been manufacturing all Edelbrock electric Quiet-Flo fuel pumps, in-line fuel pumps and regulators since 2003. This acquisition will reduce production lead times, allow Edelbrock to become more price competitive and raise the quality to even higher standards in the fuel delivery and component marketplace.

"We are excited to add SX Performance to our portfolio of products," states Edelbrock VP of Sales and Marketing Steve Whipple. "We look forward to developing new and exciting products for the race and street performance markets."

The acquisition includes all manufacturing equipment, raw materials, current and future product designs as well as any existing inventory. Additionally, Edelbrock will continue to support all of SX Performance's existing customers. The entire operation has already transitioned from St. Louis, Missouri to Edelbrock's facility in Torrance, California. For additional information, call Edelbrock, LLC at (310) 781-2222 or visit
