EGR Celebrating 50th Anniversary in 2023

EGR Celebrating 50th Anniversary in 2023 | THE SHOPEGR Group is celebrating the company’s 50th anniversary in 2023, the company announced.

Founded in 1973, the EGR Group was started in a garage by brothers, Greg and Rod Horwill, with the vision of creating stylish products utilizing advanced precision-engineered quality acrylic products and plastics. Today, the EGR Group is named after Greg and Rod, and their father, Edward, and employs over 1,000 people, services 180 markets, and has global offices in North America, Europe (UK), China, South Africa, New Zealand, UAE, Indonesia, Thailand, and Brazil. The company has four major divisions: EGR Auto Accessories, EGR Display for the manufacture of custom-made permanent and semi-permanent point-of-sale displays,  EGR Extrusion for the manufacture of specialized plastics and alloys, and EGR building products for home and commercial architectural solutions under EGR Décor.

In 1983, EGR launched its automotive accessories division beginning with acrylic headlight covers for the iconic Ford XC Falcon. Auto accessories is now the largest division with a wide range of exterior accessories developed for OE and aftermarket divisions for over 50 makes, the company said. The company’s North American headquarters is in Ontario, California and it is where most EGR automotive accessories are manufactured.

“We have long been supplying quality automotive accessories to the most trusted automotive brands in the world,” said EGR Global Brand & Marketing General Manager, James Horwill. This access was instrumental in developing our aftermarket products to ensure an OE fit, seamless design, and unique style. We have been especially successful in the US aftermarket where trucks reign supreme and customers are looking for value, ease of installation, and quality.”

In celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary, EGR USA is rolling back prices on some of their top accessories including fender flares, window visors, hood guards, and sport bars for a limited time, the company said. The 50th-anniversary promotion may change throughout the year to focus on different products.
