CP-Carrillo, Inc. and Arias Industries recently announced that CP-Carrillo will acquire the Arias Pistons brand name and trademark, and relocate their piston production to CP-Carrillo’s main manufacturing facility in Irvine, California. Arias Pistons' headquarters was previously located in Gardena, California, before the acquisition.

“Arias Pistons has endured the test of time, created a legendary history and we are beyond excited to continue this legacy," said Barry Calvert, CEO of CP-Carrillo. "Both companies strive to provide the best internal engine components to the customer, and combining the Arias product offering with our high-volume manufacturing capabilities is taking it to the next level."

In 1969, Nick Arias Jr. and Carmen Arias started Arias Pistons as a small, family-owned business in Gardena.

“With minimal staff and equipment, our parents began a journey that produced leading-edge and highly innovative products and most importantly, new client relations that the family still cherish today. Faced with the current industry consolidation, we have found in CP-Carrillo a strong partner to continue our mission to bring the highest quality, experience, performance and innovation to our customers,” said Nick Arias III, son of Carmen and the late Nick Arias, Jr.
