“ARB has been a trendsetter in the manufacture of innovative, problem-solving 4×4 accessories and overlanding products,” said Alex Lesslie, divisional purchasing manager, Turn 14 Distribution.
“From its air lockers to rugged bumpers and even the company’s fridge freezers, ARB supplies all of the gear an overland enthusiast needs to outfit a vehicle for those excursions into remote areas properly. They also manufacture a wide range of performance lighting components and recovery equipment.”
ARB’s roots trace back to Australia’s remote Top End, circa 1975. A region of vast distances and rugged terrain, it was fast becoming a Mecca for the nation’s burgeoning 4WD community. However, the very environment that attracted 4 wheelers also wreaked havoc on their equipment. When driving in extreme conditions, only the best 4×4 accessories will do. Through this experience, an idea was born: equipment that met the rigorous demands of 4WD owners.
Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 accessories. The company also has an international presence, with an office in the US and an export network that extends through more than 80 countries around the globe.
