Have you heard of our buddy Eddie? If not, have we got a story for you! In January 1993, Ed Borges founded Eddie Marine as a distributor of marine hardware to marine dealers, OEM boat builders and retail customers. With years of hard work and dedication, Eddie Marine became the leading manufacturer of high-quality performance marine hardware in the world.
That’s impressive and surprising to some, as many of us only know the company-now known as Eddie Motorsports, Inc.-as producers of high-quality billet aluminum brackets and add-ons for classic Ford and Chevy trucks. That’s because in 2009, Eddie Marine extended its offerings to the custom truck industry, which made a super-fast impact in our massive community. Even though at that time the crew had never built an award-winning show car, they did know how to manufacture American-made billet parts. Now Eddie Motorsports is known for producing products at prices that are equal to or better than those inferior, imported knockoffs flooding today’s aftermarket.
Eddie Motorsports has been in business for 11 years now with an impressive history that has helped make a massive impact in the industry. As the company progresses in this journey, it will continue to develop products that are high in quality and made in America at an affordable price. Now let’s go behind the scenes at the amazing facility.
Helping to make all things possible at Eddie Motorsports are the resources of its sister company, Eddie Machine. The 28,000-square-foot state-of-the-art machine shop has 19 CNC mills and six CNC lathes that literally run full time, producing some of the coolest billet aluminum products you can imagine for boats, cars, motorcycles, limousines and even airplanes!
