Edelbrock Group was formed in 2020 after merging two iconic automotive aftermarket racing and performance companies, Edelbrock LLC® and COMP Performance Group™ (CPG). As part of a multi-million-dollar corporate investment plan, the headquarters of both companies were consolidated to an existing CPG facility in Olive Branch, Mississippi.
The project’s first phase completed last year was a substantial undertaking that included transitioning many positions, machinery, and manufacturing from Edelbrock’s California headquarters to Olive Branch. The second phase began in October 2021 and was recently completed in May 2022. It included the build-out of offices and a complete remodel of the second floor, making way for the relocation of the Marketing, Product Management, Sales, and Customer Service divisions from offices in Memphis, Tennessee.
Edelbrock Group brands include Edelbrock Performance, COMP Cams®, Fuel Air Spark Technology® (FAST), TCI Automotive® and Russell Performance®. Cumulatively, these brands represent over 200 years of excellence in racing and street performance. “The Edelbrock Group family of brands are iconic innovators in the performance automotive aftermarket. We are excited to call north Mississippi home for the next chapter of our company’s history,” said Edelbrock Group President and CEO Tim Jones. “Olive Branch and DeSoto County offer everything we value in a location. We are excited to become an active and valued member of the local community.”
The Grand Opening festivities will conclude with a Celebratory Cruise-In Sunday, June 12 from 2-4:30 (outside the new HQ building), with food trucks, goodie bags, a raffle, and family friendly entertainment.

The Edelbrock Group event trailer will be on display at the event and a special company sponsored Hot Rod’s on Beale Street Cruise from Tiger Lane to Beale Street is planned for that evening.
