“This transaction of the France-based company further increases Xceldyne’s global motorsports valvetrain market share. It provides tangible evidence of our focus and commitment to the motorsports industry and our never-ending efforts and passion to improve the performance and reliability of race engines,” said Corey Smith, co-founder and CEO of Xceldyne. “Relocation to the United States facility will allow us to efficiently expand the premier steel valve and valvetrain components business across all motorsports disciplines.”
