Manton Family History

The Manton Family has been involved with the Motorsports Industry since the late 1960’s. The Manton name is most commonly associated with hardcore valvetrain hardware, quality race car engine components and exceptional service.

In 1978, at the age eleven Terry Manton assembled his first pushrods while working for Sig Erson Racing Cams. By 1983 Terry was manufacturing pushrods under the Manton name. Then, in 1995 Terry and Robin Manton opened Manton Pushrods, which is the start of what you see today. While Robin was dedicated to the business end of daily operations, Terry’s focus was devoted to integrate customers needs while exceeding their expectations with Manton’s products.

Today led by Robin, Manton Pushrods is the leader in pushrod technology and sets the bar for outstanding customer service. The innovation that drives this company forward comes from a team of highly skilled and motivated individuals. This team has been assembled over many years and each member has a passion of some kind, related to the motorsports world.

With the passing of Terry Manton in early 2012, his legacy will continue. We all look forward to seeing what the third generation of Manton boys will do in the future.
