The Custom Automotive Network (CAN) membership has named Edelbrock as the 2017 Manufacturer of the Year.
The award is voted on by CAN membership in recognition of outstanding contributions to the custom automotive distribution system and in appreciation of conscientious dedication to the industry. The award was presented by association President Tracie Nunez at the 44th Annual CAN Connect Conference on Sept. 10.
CAN is formerly known as Performance Warehouse Association.
“Edelbrock is a true pioneer in the custom automotive industry, and it is an honor to present this award to their entire team,” Nunez said. “They create innovative products that redefine what performance means and have really focused on strengthening their programs and policies to better support the distribution channel.”
Edelbrock has been recognized by CAN as one of the nation’s premier designers, manufacturers and distributor of performance replacement parts for the automotive aftermarket. The Edelbrock story began in 1938, when Vic Edelbrock, Sr. developed the company’s first product—the Slingshot intake manifold—for the Ford flathead.
Edelbrock produces its core products in the U.S. The company utilizes five locations in Southern California and one location in North Carolina, totaling more than 500,000 square feet.
