The idea for HornBlasters was born in 2002 when Owner and Founder Matt Heller became fed up with constantly being run off the road by other drivers on his daily commute to work. It was almost as if he was invisible while driving in his truck. Fed up with the close calls and dangerous drivers, Matt was determined to be noticed on the road. As it turned out, Matt always had a fascination with air horns growing up. That's when he was struck with the idea of taking the massive sound from real locomotives and putting them on your daily driver. Not only would this give him a way to make sure he would be heard on the road, he realized that he could also make the roads safer by selling them to others, one horn at a time.
Soon after he had his epiphany, Matt's bedroom became his warehouse as he sold horn after horn out of the back of his pickup truck in his spare time. It wasn't long before he outgrew his bedroom warehouse and pickup truck storefront. People were buying so many horns that it was time to leave his day job and grow HornBlasters full time. Since then, HornBlasters has innovated and led the way in the consumer air horn and safety device market.
