Edelbrock, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of performance replacement parts for the automotive and motorcycle aftermarkets based in Torrance, Calif., announced its acquisition of SX Performance.

SX Performance, formerly affiliated with Essex Industries, has been designing and manufacturing advanced fluid delivery systems for aerospace, military and automotive use for more than 60 years, according to a press release. The acquisition includes all manufacturing equipment, raw materials, current and future product designs, as well as any existing inventory.

“We are excited to add SX Performance to our portfolio of products,” said Steve Whipple, Edelbrock’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We look forward to developing new and exciting products for the race and street performance markets.”

SX Performance has been manufacturing all of Edelbrock’s electric Quiet-Flo fuel pumps, in-line fuel pumps and regulators since 2003. The acquisition will reduce production lead times, allow Edelbrock to become more price-competitive and raise the quality of its products, the release stated.
