Editor’s Note: Since the announcement, Edelbrock has issued a clarification regarding the transaction, indicating that the performance parts manufacturer still maintains its own line of nitrous oxide products. Read Edelbrock’s statement here.
Nitrous oxide pioneer Mike Thermos, best known as the co-founder of NOS and driving force behind the hugely popular Pro Mod class, has acquired the complete inventory of nitrous oxide-related products from Edelbrock for his latest venture, Nitrous Supply.
Commenting on the acquisition Thermos said, “Back some twenty years ago when we sold NOS to Holley, Vic Edelbrock, Jr. saw an opportunity and expanded his company into nitrous oxide…which included hiring some of our former employees who did not want to relocate. But today, their corporate focus is on other products. So we’ve come to an agreement to take the nitrous oxide portion of Edelbrock’s business,” Thermos said. “We will be able to fulfill kit orders from their major retailers, like Summit and Jegs, and supply ancillary items. Our technical staff at Nitrous Supply can provide any support needed by owners of Edelbrock nitrous kits, as well as replacement parts and performance upgrades.”
A primary manufacturer, Nitrous Supply has a full range of kits from basic plate and EFI kits to sophisticated multi-stage Fogger setups. The company also provides services like custom plumbing, system testing and N2O bottle refills at its Huntington Beach, California facility.
