Atlantic Automotive Engineering is a manufacturer of power steering pumps, steering racks, gearboxes, electrical products, and other components for the automotive aftermarket. The company was established in 1987 and grew from a small Jaguar import rack specialist to a globally recognized steering systems manufacturer.
With nearly 35 years of experience in the automotive industry, AAE is one of the most trusted brands of high-quality new and remanufactured power steering replacement products in the US.
In the Atlantic Automotive Engineering catalog, you can find electric, hydraulic, and electro-hydraulic steering components. Each product manufactured by this company goes through strict quality control.
In 2015, it was announced that CRP will acquire AAE, which provided benefits to both companies. Combined knowledge and experience have allowed them to further innovate and develop even better aftermarket auto parts.
Although AAE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CRP, it operates independently. John Treece, the founder and owner of AAE, remained at the helm of the company after the purchase by CRP.
The headquarters of Atlantic Automotive Engineering is also the manufacturing facility where the company handles its operations.
The production facility is located in Tabor City, North Carolina. This is the facility where each product produced by AAE gets tested to ensure it works perfectly.
Atlantic Automotive Engineering is not the only automotive company owned by CRP. Other companies owned by the corporation include AJUSA, Pentosin, ContiTech, and Rein Automotive.
CRP sells components manufactured by its subsidiaries to some of the biggest warehouse distributors in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
