History[edit]

Founded in January 1976, D&W Diesel began as a starter and generator repair shop. In 1980, D&W Diesel expanded its product lines to include the sales and service of turbochargers, and the growth continued. In the following years D&W added more product lines and opened additional sales and service locations in Albany, Buffalo and Rochester, New York; Worcester, Massachusetts and Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1999, D&W was named a Garrett Master Distributor.[1] D&W Performance distributes Garrett products to the Northeastern United States and to Eastern Canada. As an extension of the performance turbocharging marketing efforts, D&W invested in the business of installing and distributing performance powertrain products for both gas and diesel applications. From there, D&W Performance grew their product distribution to include such brands as Bully Dog, BD Diesel, FASS, Vibrant, TiAL, Turbosmart, MBRP and PacBrake.

In 2008, D&W Performance launched a new website, dwperformance.com, which targets the expanding performance products market.[2]
