Former Autolite Sparkplug Line Acquired By Aero Accessories

Sparkplug Manufacturing To Move To North Carolina

Aero Accessories, which make the Tempest brand aviation products, has acquired Unison Industries aviation sparkplug product line.  Unison previously marketed this sparkplug line under the Autolite brand.
 
The company said Tuesday in a news release it will relocate the sparkplug product line to its manufacturing facility in Gibsonville, NC.  The product line will be branded and marketed under the popular Tempest name.  Aero anticipates delivering the first Tempest brand sparkplugs in early March although specific details are not yet available and will be forthcoming.
      
"The acquisition of the Unison's aviation sparkplug line is a great addition to our existing line of aviation products.  We feel adding this product line is important not only to our company's strategic plan, but to the general aviation industry as well," stated John Herman, Tempest's Vice President of Marketing and Sales. Herman added "Tempest will offer the aviation consumer competitive sparkplugs manufactured to the same high quality standards that have made Tempest oil filters, dry air pumps, carburetors, and other related engine components industry leaders." 

The Tempest brand includes pneumatic, filtration, and fuel systems, including a complete line of OEM carburetors and fuel pumps, ignition components, oil and pneumatic filtration products, and specialty tools.  The manufacturing facilities are located in Gibsonville, NC, with sales and marketing offices located in Greenville, SC and Atlanta, GA.
