Weiand was founded as a performance parts warehouse by Phil Weiand in the mid 1930’s. Weiand’s first branded product, the “High Weiand” manifold, came out in 1937 and was the first aluminum intake to market. In 1949 Weiand introduced the “Tri-power” and 2×4 (four 2-barrels) manifolds.

In 1998 Weiand was purchased by Holley followed by B&M’m automotive and marine supercharger division in 1999 which was rolled in to Weiand.
