FMSI Acquires Edelmann Brass & Brake Assets

FMSI says the purchase will complement its existing business.

FMSI Automotive Hardware has announced its acquisition of the Brass & Brake assets of Plews & Edelmann. FMSI says the purchase will complement its existing business.

FMSI Automotive Hardware has been a manufacturer of brake, fuel, transmission, AC and Coolant repair lines and fittings for more than 30 years. With the addition of Edelmann Fittings and Brake Lines, FMSI says it will be “the industry leader in high-quality, problem-solving automotive fittings and fluid carrying lines. Our customers throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand will be able to take advantage of two great offerings merged into one source,” the company stated in a press release.

FMSI Founder and President David Greenwood commented, “The addition of Edelmann Brass & Brake, combined with FMSI established programs, continues our commitment to serve all channels of distribution with a comprehensive range of the highest-quality products and problem-solving offerings to the automotive aftermarket.”

Dan Billie, CEO of Plews & Edelmann, added, “The sale of the fittings business is a direct result of Plews’ focus on providing the total solution to the power steering category. Along with the recent sale of our non-application parts business to Highline Warren, this completes a three-year effort to diversify away from non-application parts categories.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
