ATI Performance Products, Inc. founder Jim Beattie was an avid race fan, inventor and mechanical genius. After proudly serving in the US Navy, Jim opened a modest general transmission rebuilding business which has grown into one of the most dominant high performance manufacturers in the industry. Because of Jim’s passion and drive and innovative knowledge, ATI now produces some of the finest race transmissions, torque converters and high performance components used by racers all over the world. Jim was well loved by family and friends and was well known in the racing world. He will be missed by so many, but his legacy of using cutting edge technology to produce state-of-the-art products for racers lives on with the family business.
