Warn Buys Factor 55
Warn Industries announced that it had officially acquired closed-system winching company, Factor 55.
Warn has long been a leader in the winch technology space. While Factor 55 is relatively new to the space they have been gaining traction with their closed-system winching system and building a strong reputation. It’s fairly common to see a Factor 55 FlatLink used with a Warn winch.
“Given their premium brand, experienced engineering design capabilities, and specialization in CLOSED SYSTEM WINCHING products, we feel strongly about the complementary nature of the Factor 55 product offering and realizing the benefits this partnership brings.” said Kyle Shiminski, vice president & general manager of Warn Industries, “We look forward to working closely with Michael and the entire Factor 55 team, and continuing their history of premium, innovative products for more secure winch and rigging operation.”
I hope this works out and Factor 55 continues to revolutionize the recovery industry with their products. Too many times though I’ve seen the innovative spirit of the smaller company destroyed.
