DEC, founded in 1984, manufactures premium-quality direct-fit OEM style replacement catalytic converters for the automotive aftermarket industry. The addition of Pacesetter Performance Products will broaden the company’s offerings to include performance products such as headers, and specialized exhaust systems through its Monza/TFX line, without diluting DEC’s main focus on direct fit converters.

Robert Perret, CEO and president of DEC, say, “This new alliance will enhance our research and development of exciting new products, cementing our current positions as the go-to companies for first-to-market, highest-quality aftermarket exhaust products and direct-fit catalytic converters. Our combined manufacturing backgrounds and superior customer service teams will provide each of our customers with a best-in-class experience, which we believe is paramount to continued growth and success in today’s competitive marketplace.”

“Pacesetter has been manufacturing several lines of performance headers along with their famed Monza/TFX performance exhaust systems for over 43 years, and has developed their own line of direct fit catalytic converters. For Pacesetter customers, this joining seamlessly and effectively provides access to the over 3,500 SKUs DEC currently produces.”

Woody Harrah, president of PaceSetter Performance Products, said, “We are pleased to have DEC as our parent company and believe that with a strong emphasis on further developing the unique qualities of both companies, each will retain their own methodology in manufacturing their individual product lines and brands, while leveraging the best synergies from the other for increased efficiencies and unsurpassed quality.”
