Our approach to supercharging demands an OEM grade fit and finish for every system we produce.
Ventura, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
Ed Tresback, President of Magnuson Products, LLC, announced his retirement effective December 31, 2011. Mr. Tresback spent fifteen years alongside company founder Jerry Magnuson, helping to guide Magnuson Products from a niche re-manufacturing facility into a multi-million dollar Supercharger manufacturing operation.
Mr. Ed Tresback and Magnuson Superchargers Have a History
From his early start at Magnuson Superchargers as the third hire, he rose to position of President in 2010, managing operations and a staff of over sixty people.
Early in his career, Ed Tresback oversaw the remanufacturing of supercharger systems for a major automotive supplier. Fueled by Jerry Magnuson’s vision, Magnuson Products began growing from those roots into the premier supplier of aftermarket supercharger performance. Ed’s responsibility shifted to taking Jerry’s vision and designs and turning them into reality.
A Powerful Influence on Today’s Superchargers
Ed Tresback’s impact on Magnuson’s superchargers and the supercharger industry extend beyond the office into the very heart of today’s supercharger technology. Ed is credited with the introduction of flexible actuator positioning and the more universal actuator bracket along with other designs and components. Many of these components are still in use in Magnuson’s supercharger systems.
Continued Commitment to Powerful, Reliable Supercharger Systems
Ed Tresback’s legacy of excellence continues to influence the design strategy at Magnuson Superchargers. Peak power numbers are useful in their own right, but Magnuson chooses to focus on more than just horsepower increases when designing and engineering its supercharger systems. Their implemented mandate is to produce systems that produce dramatic power a reliable product, and calibrations that are as good as or better than stock to drive. One example of this approach is Magnuson’s fuel saving integrated bypass valves. Further innovations can be seen during the installation process. Magnuson has matched all of the factory manifold connections, supplied high volume fuel injectors complete with factory push lock connectors, and included a pre-programmed hand-held tuner that re-calibrates the factory ECU. Ed Tresback says this about the philosophy of Magnuson Superchargers, “Our approach to supercharging demands an OEM grade fit and finish for every system we produce.”
Ed and his wife Barbara are looking forward to spending more time with family.
