|Prestolite/Mr. Gasket to Market Hot Rod Calc||3/4/2010|
CARSON CITY, Nev. - Calculated Industries (CI) has announced a worldwide exclusive contract with Prestolite Performance/Mr. Gasket to market CI's award-winning Hot Rod Calc Strip and Street Performance Calculator. The Hot Rod Calc won the 2nd Runner-up award for Best New Performance Product at November's SEMA show.
CI's president Steve Kennedy said, "This is truly a win-win for both companies. The car performance market is far removed from our construction-real estate base and Prestolite Performance/Mr. Gasket realized early on what a great product the Hot Rod Calc is and how popular it will be in their market. We look forward to working with them to give them a high-quality, affordable product that will appeal to their huge customer base and dealer market. Their Mr. Gasket Hot Calc will be launched this coming May."
