Pertronix

Pertronix was founded in 1962 as Per-Lux, and was known for being primarily a manufacturer of driving and fog lights for the heavy-duty market (big rig trucks). In the early 70's, they came up with the idea of an electronic ignition system that would replace the points and condenser in distributors. After patenting the product, Per-Lux started manufacturing the Ignitor®. The product gained wide acceptance with fleet shops 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. Only a few automotive applications were available in those early years, but automotive enthusiasts began using the Ignitor for the superior performance it offered. Utilizing the Ignitor technology, a complete electronic distributor was developed in 1985 and supplied to Wis-Con, a major original equipment engine manufacturer.

Their name changed in 1991 to PerTronix, and it signaled the company's total commitment to the ignition business. With the tremendous growth of the performance industry in the 90's, PerTronix began to shift their emphasis to their automotive products. 

PerTronix has greatly expanded their ignition offering over the years including the addition of the Ignitor II and Ignitor III micro controller points and HEI replacement systems for the increased high RPM performance, Flame-Thrower HEI and Billet Plug and Play Distributors including marine applications, "Stock Look" distributors for many domestic and foreign applications, over twenty new coil applications, hundreds of wire set applications, Second Strike® ignition box, Digital Rev Limiter.
