Tekonsha_logo-Color_NEWCequent Performance Products is marking a milestone this year for its Tekonsha brand of brake controls and electrical products. According to a press release, the company has achieved 50 years in the automotive aftermarket. 

Since Tekonsha’s inception in 1964, products have ranged from RV steps to its flagship line of trailer brake controls. Tekonsha, named after its home-based operations in Tekonsha, Mich., was founded by Jim Melluish. In 2003 it was incorporated into the Cequent family of brands.

“Tekonsha has a long history of success and adaptation,” says Tom Benson, president of Cequent Performance Products. “It is one of our premier brands that has stood the test of time and is in great demand by new and existing customers alike.” 

With 50 years under its belt, the Tekonsha brand is looking toward the future, confident in meeting the needs of the next generation of customers. 

“We’ve been fortunate to have such a successful brand over the past 50 years, and would like to thank our dedicated customers and employees for putting their trust in Tekonsha. We couldn’t have done this without you,” said Benson.
