Blower Drive Service Sold to Belt Drives Ltd.

BDS-logoBlower Drive Service (BDS), the Southern California manufacturer and distributor of superchargers and supercharger components and historically a leader in supercharger components for street-driven vehicles, has been acquired by another Southern California company with ties to the supercharger industry, Belt Drives Limited (BDL).

“I’m proud to announce that my company has come to an agreement with the Railsback family, who have owned BDS since its inception, to buy their company,” Belt Drives Ltd. owner Steven Yetzke said. “BDL has been making supercharger pulleys for many years and we are heavily involved with and support drag racing. We have sponsored several Top Fuel bikes through the years, so this acquisition made perfect sense for me, my company and BDS.”

The sale of the company won’t interrupt the day-to-day business of BDS.

“I’m pleased that Mrs. Norma Iskenderian, who has been managing the BDS company for over two decades, has agreed to stay on in her present position and that we have also come to an agreement with Craig Railsback to stay on and work on special projects,” said Yetzke.

BDS will continue to do business from its current location at 12140 Washington Blvd., Whittier, CA 90606. Contact BDS at 562-693-4302 or go to www.blowerdriveservice.com.

The engineering, assembly and sales departments will also remain at that location while some of the manufacturing will be moved to the BDL plant at 5500 E. La Palma Ave., Anaheim CA 92807. Contact Belt Drives Ltd. by phone 714-693-1313 or go to www.beltdrives.com.

The Belt Drives facilities include their own aluminum foundry, over 50 CNC mills and lathes, gear-cutting department and a rubber manufacturing facility that includes state of the art CAD design and rapid prototyping.
