Bestop Acquires Three Off-Road Brands


Bestop Premium Accessories Group has purchased PRP Seats, Status Racing and SpeedStrap, all owned by KAMM Industries, based in Temecula, California.

PRP Seats was founded in 1997 and is best known for seats manufactured for UTVs, such as the Polaris RZR and Can-Am Maverick X3. The company also manufactures seats for Jeeps, trucks and other UTVs.

Status Racing manufactures a full line of highly specialized racing seats and offers a wide breadth of customization and personalization options.

SpeedStrap, acquired by KAMM Industries in June, makes weavable recovery straps, premium tie-downs and accessories for off-road vehicles.

“PRP Seats, Status Racing and SpeedStrap are premier-quality names in this space and we are thrilled to work with them,” says John Larson, CEO of Bestop Premium Accessories Group. “The addition of these three brands to the Bestop Premium Accessories Group family further positions us as the leading provider of top-of-the-line off-road driving accessories.”

The acquisition follows Bestop Premium Accessories Group acquiring two other brands in 2016: Baja Designs and Tuffy Security Products.

“Now is the right time to join forces with Bestop because there is a huge opportunity to leverage each other’s strengths,” said Aaron Wedeking, founder and CEO of KAMM Industries and PRP Seats. “We wanted to align ourselves with a partner that values the premium performance, quality and innovation that PRP Seats is known for, and Bestop is clearly the right choice.”
