Originally known as Per-Lux, the company was founded in 1962, primarily a manufacturer of driving and fog lights for the heavy-duty truck market. In the early 70’s, a Per-Lux engineer developed an electronic ignition system that would replace the points and condenser in distributors. After patenting the product, Per-Lux started manufacturing the Ignitor® with sales and marketing emphasis on the forklift and industrial engine markets. Soon the Ignitor was introduced to the automotive market, offering its superior performance and in 1985 the first replacement electronic distributor was introduced. In 1991, Tom Reh acquired the Ignition Division and PerTronix was born with a total commitment to the ignition market. In the years that followed, the reliable, high quality, competitively priced Ignitor took over the industry with Sales of Over 4 million units to date. The expertise and industry knowledge within PerTronix had the team setting their sights on new product segments and so began the legacy of PerTronix Performance Brands.
