AutoMeter has been driven to provide performance enthusiasts with the information they need to win. We’ve revolutionized the way that racers and vehicle builders think about instrumentation and vehicle electronics for more than 60 years. AutoMeter was founded by Vern Westberg in 1957. In the early days, Vern would pour sand castings in his family’s backyard, and his sons would help him assemble products in their basement at night.
During our 60+ years, we have developed many industry-leading products from our rev control tachometers and quick responding tachometers, to our high technology LCD Competition data acquisition systems. We have set the standard for accuracy, precision, and durability. Today, we have state-of-the-art cellular manufacturing centers, advanced engineering systems, and product technology that is unmatched in the instrumentation marketplace.
AutoMeter Products, Inc. is a high technology company based in Sycamore, IL USA, with a state-of-the-art cellular manufacturing operation, world class ISO 9000:TS 16949 Certified Quality System, an advanced engineering team, and product technology that is unmatched in the instrumentation marketplace. In addition to the more commonly known AutoMeter High Performance division focused on performance and racing automotive instrumentation and electronics, AutoMeter also includes four additional branches that cater to specialty markets:
• AutoMeter Original Equipment Division that works with large clients for the creation of specialty instrumentation for production vehicles.
• AutoMeter Pro-Cycle Division that designs and produces product geared specifically for the motorcycle industry.
• AutoMeter Marine Division, which produces instrumentation for water-borne vehicles.
• AutoMeter Test Equipment Division that produces professional grade automotive battery and electrical chargers and testers for automotive repair and vehicle fleet maintenance.
In 2007, AutoMeter expanded its performance family to include two new companies with the acquisition of Stack, Ltd. of England, whose roots are in Formula 1 instrumentation and are famous for their dash displays and data acquisition systems, and Dedenbear Products, a company renowned for throttle stops, delay boxes, and drag racing electronics. AutoMeter is excited about the opportunities presented in these partnerships and are bringing to market several new and exciting designs and technologies including the Ultra-Lite Pro Data Acquisition System, the Dedenbear STS Throttle Stop, and Stack Pro-Control Professional Stepper Motor Gauges.
In 2012, AutoMeter expanded once again with the acquisition of ProParts LLC. Born on the high speed ovals of NASCAR and refined on road courses and drag strips around the world, Spek-Pro gauges are some of the most advanced instruments ever conceived. AutoMeter welcomes the ProParts Spek gauges into our ever growing motorsports product line to offer the absolute best features no matter the application.
