With the addition of Edelmann fittings and brake lines, “FMSI will be the industry leader in high-quality, problem-solving automotive fittings and fluid carrying lines,” the company asserted in a news release.

“Our customers throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand will be able to take advantage of two great offerings merged into one source,” FMSI added.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“The addition of Edelmann Brass & Brake, combined with FMSI established programs, continues our commitment to serve all channels of distribution with a comprehensive range of the highest quality products and problem-solving offerings to the automotive aftermarket,” said David Greenwood, founder and president.

FMSI is headquartered in Burlington, Ontario.

Dan Billie, CEO of Plews & Edelmann, added: “The sale of the fittings business is a direct result of Plews’ focus on providing the total solution to the power steering category.Along with the recent sale of our non-application parts business to Highline Warren, this completes a three-year effort to diversify away from non-application parts categories.”
