It was back in 1948 that Warn Industries first went into business. That means that 2018 is a milestone for us: 70 years of letting people GO PREPARED with premium products. A 70th anniversary needs to be celebrated, and we’re going to do so in a few ways.
First, we’ll be offering some cool stuff for sale throughout the year starting at Easter Jeep Safari in Moab next week. During vendor days (March 28 and 29), you’ll be able to come by the booth and purchase some of the limited-edition stuff including t-shirts, hats, hoodies, and more. Not going to Jeep Safari? You’ll be able to buy 70th apparel and gear on warngear.us not long after.
In addition to apparel and gear, we intend on releasing a special-edition 70th-anniversary winch later in the year.
The celebration will continue through 2018, so keep your eyes and ears out for some neat stuff!
70 Years of Innovation
Warn Industries started in 1948 when Arthur Warn began producing locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. This invention would convert thousands of Jeep vehicles into useful rigs that could be operated on-road as well as off. In the late 1950s, Warn would go on to develop the first electric recreational winch and create the leading brand for off-road racers, four-wheel drive enthusiasts, and hard-working farmers and ranchers. Warn also introduced the first dedicated winch for powersports vehicles 30 years ago, further enhancing the performance of ATVs.
Warn isn’t just a winch manufacturer, however. We offer a host of industry-leading bumpers and mounting systems, trusted rigging equipment, and hard-working plow systems for a complete lineup of products for those who use their trucks, SUVs, and powersports vehicles whether at work or at play.
Warn Industries shows no signs of slowing down at 70. We’ll go to nearly 100 shows and consumer events this year and will continue to release new, innovative, state-of-the-art products in 2018.
We couldn’t have hit 70 years without the loyal following of WARN customers. So to all of you who have purchased our products over the years, we say—thank you!
