Over the past 40 years, PerTronix has evolved beyond its origins as lighting manufacturers for big rig trucks (PerLux) to become a powerhouse in performance engine technology.
In the early 70s, an engineer invented an electronic ignition system that would replace the points and condenser in distributors. After patenting the ignition system, the Ignitor®, the company soon developed a following among automotive enthusiasts. Its enhanced reliability and reduced engine maintenance costs made the Ignitor a hit.
Utilizing the Ignitor technology, PerTronix developed a complete electronic distributor in 1985 and supplied it to a major original equipment engine manufacturer.
When the original company, PerLux, sold their lighting division in 1990, the management team bought the Ignition Division a year later. Putting all their attention to their engine offering, their timing coincided with the tremendous growth of the performance industry throughout the 90s. They enjoyed success not only in the automotive industry but throughout the marine, agricultural and industrial engine markets as well.
With the addition of their Flame Thrower® coil and spark plug wire product lines, PerTronix relocated to a new 22,000 square foot custom manufacturing facility in California. To date, the company’s Ignitor kit sales have surpassed 4,000,000 units.
