Melbourne, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/15/2014 -- Pure Performance Motorsport, a company that manufactures high performance connecting rods and crankshafts, has just announced the launch of a fundraising campaign on the Indiegogo website. The company hopes to raise enough money to save ACL Bearings via Pure Performance Motorsport fundraising efforts.
As an article that accompanies the Pure Performance Motorsport fundraiser on Indiegogo explains, they are doing whatever they can to try to save the ACL Race Engine Bearing Company from closure. Describing the company as a “state of the art research and manufacturing facility all made 100 percent in Australia,” the staff at Pure Performance Motorsport was saddened to learn that ACL Bearings was planning on shutting its doors, due to financial troubles and mis-management.
“We are determined to try to save this company from closure as these are the best Engine Bearings money can buy and known worldwide for their toughness and quality,” the article noted, adding that high performance driving demands that people use the best parts possible—like those that are manufactured by ACL Race Engine Bearing Company.
“They provide the dependability it takes to hold up under higher RPM conditions. The unique combination of design, metallurgy and engineering come together to deliver what drivers expect from high performance parts.”
ACL has a long history in Australia; the company can trace its beginning to 1922, when Geoff Russell started to manufacture engine parts for Australia’s growing automotive industry. Russell’s business became the foundation for Repco Ltd. As the article on the Indiegogo website noted, the ACL Group acquired a group of businesses from Repco Ltd in 1986. The ACL Group now has annual sales of $50 million and employs 170 people.
Anybody who would like to learn more about Pure Performance Motorsport’s efforts to save the ACL Race Engine Bearing Company is welcome to visit the Indiegogo fundraising page; there, they can read about the company and how donors will be rewarded for their contributions.
