New Owner for Autolite Sparkplug Line

Aero Accessories, Inc., the manufacturer of Tempest aviation products, announced that it has acquired Unison Industries’ aviation sparkplug product line. Unison previously marketed this sparkplug line under the Autolite brand.

Aero will relocate the sparkplug product line to its manufacturing facility in Gibsonville, North Carolina, and the sparkplugs will be branded and marketed under the Tempest name. Aero anticipates delivering the first Tempest brand sparkplugs in early March.

“The acquisition of the Unison’s aviation sparkplug line is a great addition to our existing line of aviation products,” said John Herman, VP of marketing and sales. “We feel adding this product line is important not only to our company’s strategic plan, but to the general aviation industry as well.” Tempest also manufactures oil filters, dry air pumps, carburetors and other engine-related components.
