Autometer- Brand Feature

AutoMeter products come from a long line of racing history. When engines were becoming more powerful, in turn, they revved faster, created more heat, and demanded more out of the vehicle. Factory instruments were unable to keep up with the need of the racers. 

In 1957, AutoMeter was founded on the fastest, most accurate tachometer ever designed. Able to keep with the revs and provide unparalleled accuracy, the AutoMeter tachometer was widely accepted in the cockpits of the fastest race cars. 

Through the years, AutoMeter honed this technology to continuously improve all products, tachometers included. AutoMeter Products, Inc. is the worldwide leader in performance instrumentation with its tachometers, speedometers, and gauges used by professional and sportsmen racers around the world.

AutoMeter has been driven to provide performance enthusiasts with the information they need to win. They have 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 their 60+ years, they have developed many industry-leading products from rev control tachometers and quick responding tachometers to high technology LCD Competition data acquisition systems. They have set the standard for accuracy, precision, and durability. 

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. AutoMeter is the only ISO/TS certified manufacturer of the micro air core that drives gauges anywhere in the US. This allows them to be a first-tier supplier to the major automakers and many other high-tech OEM customers. 

Since 1979, AutoMeter’s production facility has been a fixture in the heart of downtown Sycamore, Illinois. With nearly 100,000 sq. ft. of production, engineering, and warehouse space, their state-of-the-art facility allows AutoMeter to build some of the most sophisticated products in the automotive aftermarket. 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 like production vehicles, the motorcycle industry, water-borne vehicles and professional grade automotive battery, 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 is 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.

Their advanced manufacturing cells are designed and constantly improved through a team effort lead by the technicians that build products on a day-to-day basis. 

This incredibly efficient process assures nothing but the utmost in quality while allowing AutoMeter to compete with other brands that ship their manufacturing overseas. Attention to detail is unparalleled in the industry, with such critical functions as circuit board printing and meter movement winding being done in-house by skilled technicians, ensuring nothing but the most accurate, reliable products get to wear the AutoMeter name.
