Founded in 1948 by Arthur Warn, Warn Industries began producing locking hubs for surplus World
War II Jeeps, converting thousands into useful, on-road vehicles. Originally based in Seattle,
Washington, Warn Industries' innovation revolutionized the hub industry. The WARN® winch,
developed in 1959, was the first recreational winch. With pioneering features such as a
rugged drive train, the WARN winch quickly became the leading brand for off-road racers,
avid four wheelers, weekend adventurers and hard working ranchers.
Today, Warn Industries is still the world’s most recognized brand in off-road products.
The company designs, manufacturers and markets a full line of off-road equipment and
accessories that enhance the performance of four-wheel-drive vehicles and ATVs. And now
offer a new line of power tools called WARN Works®. Warn Industries employs more than
500 people in and around Portland, Ore., and Livonia, Mich. For 50 years, whenever
durability and dependability have mattered, customers have chosen WARN products.
