Race Winning Brands acquires RevMax, TransGo and TSI

Race Winning Brands Inc. (RWB) has acquired RevMax, TransGo and Transmission Specialties Inc. (TSI). The acquisition is effective immediately. The businesses will continue to operate and service customers from their respective locations, the company says.

“We are very excited to be a part of Race Winning Brands,” said Frank Kuperman, president of RevMax, TransGo and TSI. “The synergies between their industry-leading engine components and our transmission components go hand-in-hand. Our team is focused on helping RWB build a new growth path in the performance transmission sector. More importantly, we are excited about the new opportunities for all of our customers.”

“The addition of these three legendary brands to our family we believe is a natural next step, adding outside-of-the-engine performance,” stated Bob Bruegging, CEO of Race Winning Brands. “With a strong presence in both diesel and gasoline transmission products, along with a strong management team led by Frank Kuperman, we see tremendous synergies within this move for multiple reasons—but especially for our customers.”
