Mar 10, 2017

TOPP Performance Race Parts has acquired Gaerte Engines, which was previously owned by Joe and Brenda Gaerte.

“We are excited for the opportunity to continue manufacturing and producing quality racing engines,” said Joe Gaerte. “We are ready to grow and expand our products and services to the racing community.”

“The services, quality and the products” from Gaerte engines will continue to be sold in the same way, according to Topp Performance Race Parts. The Gaerte Engines name, used for 48 years, will be sold as an exclusive line by TOPP Performance Race Parts.

“We are so blessed for the opportunity to welcome the Gaerte Engine name into our business,” said Kevin Birchmeier, owner and president of TOPP Industries. “We are really looking forward to the great opportunities that lie ahead with both businesses coming together as one.”

Birchmeier also heads the TOPP Motorsports and TOPP Performance Race Parts brands. TOPP Performance Race Parts was established in 2016 and started as a small track trailer business at Plymouth Speedway.

“Bringing the Gaerte Engine name into our TOPP Performance Race Parts brand truly magnifies the opportunities that we can offer for our customers,” Birchmeier said. “There are big things to come from us.”
