PerTronix - electronic performance ignition

About PerTronix

Originally known as Per-Lux, the company was founded in 1962, primarily a manufacturer of driving and fog lights for the heavy-duty market (big rig trucks).

In the early 70’s, an engineer came up with the idea of an electronic ignition system that would replace the points and condenser in distributors. The Ignitor was born and after patenting the product, Per-Lux started manufacturing systems with emphasis on the lift truck and industrial engine markets. The product gained wide acceptance with fleet managers who came to realize the dramatic improvement in reliability and reduced maintenance cost whether they were responsible for delivery trucks, school buses or generator/industrial engines.

In early 1990, Per-Lux sold their lighting division and the management team lead by Tom Reh, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, acquired the ignition division. The name changed in 1991 to PerTronix signaled the company’s total commitment to the ignition business. With the tremendous growth in the automotive performance industry, PerTronix has shifted emphasis to their automotive product offering, adding over 80 applications in the last few years.
