Who is Vortech?

Vortech Supercharger was founded by Jim Middlebrook back in 1990. Jim was an Engineer from Paxton supercharger. He would later on design an internally gear-driven compressor, which is then the birth of Vortech. The company specializes in manufacturing high-performance engine upgrades for multiple industries such as marine, industrial, aeronautical, and automotive. Initially offered to be compatible with Ford Engines, they would, later on, expand their application to more engine models.

Vortech has always pushed the boundaries for designing new centrifugal compressors with several patents under its name. Today, the company has been synonymous with performance and has been the brand of choice by enthusiasts who want to put more horsepower in their engine.
