Pertronix: Taylor Cable Celebrates 100th Anniversary

When Reach 100 Years Old You Do, Look This Good You Will Not

Taylor Cable Products is turning 100! The company kicked off its 100th Anniversary celebration at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California. “This is a prestigious show and a favorite of ours because it draws the enthusiasts that Taylor Cable products cater to so we couldn’t think of a better place to commemorate the occasion,” said Marketing Director, Kelli Murrow.


Founded in 1923 by John Taylor, the company became renowned for its invention of the universal battery cable as we know it today taking a product specific to an automobile application and reducing the need to manage the product line across multiple applications. With this success, it was not long before high-performance ignition wire sets joined the Taylor Cable product line. Taylor Cable Products have become iconic in the automotive and race markets with a passionate following among enthusiasts who appreciate the quality and performance that their products offer. “We are always looking to push the envelope and provide our customers with the best possible experience, and we appreciate the loyal customers who have supported our brand all these years and those who will continue to drive us into the future.,” said Jeff Stacy, V.P. of Sales.

To celebrate 100 years in business, Taylor Cable will be giving away promotional items and prizes at shows throughout the year and offering a series of Limited Edition 100th Anniversary Spark Plug Wires. Be sure to check out their website or social media pages for more information.

ABOUT Pertronix Inc.®

Originally known as Per-Lux, the company was founded in 1962 by Lavar Holman, primarily a manufacturer of driving and fog lights for the heavy-duty market (big rig trucks).  In the early 70’s, an engineer 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 with sales and marketing emphasis on the lift truck and industrial engine markets.
