Edge's performance electronic devices are geared toward customers with a need for speed. Says CEO Paul Lehman: "We make diesel trucks go faster." The little gray box that Edge sells (which you may have seen advertised on Spike TV) plugs in under the hood and uploads into the truck's computer to increase velocity and towing capacity. Lehman, a Manhattan native formerly in the Wall Street LBO racket, says it is an ongoing challenge to find R&D engineers who have a passion for the specialized industry.
