Warn Industries Adds Additional 70th Anniversary Activities
Seventy years ago, Arthur Warn started Warn Industries with a set of locking hubs for surplus WWII Jeeps. Over the next seven decades, the company would pioneer the electric winch, supply automakers with OE parts, create the powersports winch market, and design a host of innovative state-of-the-art products that let 4WD and powersports enthusiasts “go prepared.” That’s cause for celebration, according to the company.
Warn Industries kicked off its 70th anniversary celebration in March at Easter Jeep Safari, where the company offered limited-edition commemorative apparel, gear, and swag.
June 10 is the company’s official anniversary date, and Warn has released more information about its celebratory activities for the rest of the year.
Now Available Online
The 70th anniversary apparel and gear that was first available at Jeep Safari is now available at warngear.us. Consumers can buy commemorative T-shirts, hoodies, hats, patches, and a tin sign all adorned with the collectible anniversary graphics. More items will be added as the weeks progress. Warn will continue to offer these goods at shows and events, too.
As in previous milestone years, Warn will release a special limited-edition winch for its 70th anniversary. Called the M8274-70, it will be based on the upright WARN winch design. According to Warn, this product will feature upgraded performance, Spydura synthetic rope, distinctive styling and commemorative 70th Anniversary badging. Warn will release more details about the M8274-70 in the coming months.
Social Media Contests
Warn Industries will be holding trivia contests based around the company’s history on its Instagram (@warnindustries) and Facebook (@WARNfans) pages beginning this summer. Winners will receive a prize pack that includes an assortment of 70th swag. The winner of each trivia contest will be entered into a grand-prize drawing to win a WARN truck winch.
A Different Anniversary
While Warn Industries as a whole is celebrating 70 years in business, 2018 also marks 30 years of offering dedicated powersports products. This includes winches, bumpers, and accessories dedicated to use on ATVs, side-by-sides, and a host of other all-terrain rigs, according ot the company.
Warn Industries in the 1980s offered a dedicated powersports winch-the A1500-for riders in the bourgeoning ATV market. In 1988, Warn patented the ATV winch.
Some 30 years later, Warn Industries said it is getting ready to “revolutionize the powersports industry again with groundbreaking new product to be released later this summer.” More information will be available in the coming weeks.
