Experience matters. And ours dates all the way back to the emergence of the "horseless carriage" in 1896 when brothers Frank and Perry Remy developed the Remy Magneto to power the first vehicles and establish Remy at the top of manufacturers’ supplier lists, with production capacity growing each year.
In the early years of the twentieth century, ownership traded hands and acquisition precluded Dayton Engineering Laboratories Company (DELCO). In 1918, Delco Remy began operating as a division of GM, developing advanced technologies and providing the industry with automotive, heavy duty and U.S. military products.
A successful GM division for more than 75 years, Delco Remy became its own entity in 1994, when a group of private investors led by former Chrysler President Harold K. Sperlich and Delco Remy Executive Thomas J. Snyder bought portions of the heavy duty and automotive divisions.
In 2004, the company changed its name to Remy International, Inc. Today, Remy is the leading global manufacturer and remanufacturer of automotive parts, including starters, alternators and hybrid motors. With thousands of employees worldwide and global facilities in 10 countries on five continents, Remy is well-positioned to support the global transportation industry. In fact, we intentionally place ourselves close to our customers and service markets so we can continue to partner together to develop innovations that are transforming the transportation marketplace.
