In March of 1945, Vernon Lester Carr started V.L. Carr & Son Pattern Co. in an old metal shop behind his house in Los Angeles, California. Early in 1983, a whole new industry opened up to them which was an entirely different industry than what had been their mainstay since 1945-the automotive aftermarket. Once the decision was made to change the course of the business into the automotive industry, investment money was gathered and the production facility was expanded. Extensive research, development, and design resulted in the introduction of aluminum cast light bars and truck steps, which were introduced at SEMA, where one of CARRâ€™s products won second place, clearly establishing them as serious new competitors. Today, CARR, as it is popularly known, is in virtually every major warehouse across the United States and Canada, and has established itself as a company whose accessories place it among the major competitors in the industry. With over 60 years of manufacturing excellence, CARR is a third-generation business, who remains firmly committed to product innovation and design, hassle-free customer service, and offering the consumer various choices in steps, light bars, and other accessories.
