In March of 2020, Warn Industries announced the acquisition of Idaho-based Factor 55. The company, best known for its winch line shackle mounts which replace a winch hook, also produces a host of other top-tier products for vehicle recovery. Factor 55 pioneered the idea of closed system winching, a rigging technique using closed-link hardware for truck, powersports, and industrial/military applications. Its product offerings, U.S. manufacturing, and location all made it a natural pairing with Warn.
Later in 2020, Warn continued to break new ground in the product world by launching its HUB Wireless Control, allowing users of contactor-equipped winches to operate their units using the Bluetooth connection on their smartphone. Whether truck, powersports, or something in between, with its custom-developed free app for both Android and iOS, it gave users nearly 10x the range of a 12’ corded remote.
About a year after the acquisition of Factor 55 in 2021, Warn Industries acquired Fabtech Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of premium suspension components. With a motorsports background and American manufacturing in Chino, California, Fabtech allowed Warn Industries family of brands the ability to not only offer vehicle recovery products, but also vehicle suspension systems. The company is known for producing top-tier suspensions for a wide range of vehicles, and uses premium parts including its Dirt Logic shocks.
In August of 2021, Warn acquired a third company: South Carolina-based manufacturer, Fab Fours. Best known for some of its wild designs, such as the Grumper, Fab Fours offers up a host of metal fabricated truck and Jeep bumper and accessory options. They also have built some show-stopping vehicles such as the Kymera.
Along with Warn, these three premium companies make up the Warn Industries family of brands, and continue to operate in their respective locations.
