Founded in 1948, Warn Industries (“Warn”) is a leading manufacturer of drivetrain components, winches and accessories for the four-wheel drive, light truck, and all-terrain vehicle markets. The Company markets components directly to manufacturers such as Ford, Nissan and Kia as well as off-road products and accessories such as electric winches, hubs, mounting systems and plows for ATV’s.
Endeavour had known Warn Industries and its family owners for several years before the owners’ decision to sell the Company. Endeavour partnered with the Company’s executive team to acquire the Company from the Warn family in 1999. During Endeavour’s involvement, Warn continued to build upon its strong brand in the off-road and OEM automotive markets.
Endeavour and the other shareholders sold the Company in 2003, and Warn remains an Oregon-based operating company.
