Pro Armor started from the love of manufacturing and racing like many do – In a garage, working late hours after a regular job. Although the machining that took place in the garage did not have the cool factor like many of the parts produced by Pro Armor today. When the breaker would fry or the fuse would blow, that meant that the machines were really pumping out parts and that I should slow down a little…
Manufacturing CNC parts continued to be a key role and by 1990 Pro Armor had accumulated a handful of well-known customers. By 1994 Pro Armor was now supplying billet parts for GT bicycles and later that year a company would contract us for parts that would change everything. Yamaha Motor Company contacted us to develop billet accessories for their RoadStar Cruiser Motorcycle, Yamaha’s most popular Cruiser bike to date. Quickly after developing parts for the RoadStar, Yamaha requested parts developed for their Raptor 660 ATV project. The Raptor 660 was a revolutionary ATV at the time and creating the accessories for this bike opened our eyes to the possibility of aftermarket accessories, and others like it in the growing market.
OEM’s continued to contact us to develop and manufacture their parts. We had built quite a good reputation with Yamaha, and that good reputation started traveling, and FAST. Soon we were an OEM supplier for all four large manufactures, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Honda. We also became a supplier to Polaris and Arctic Cat.
In 2001 Pro Armor used the knowledge and experience in developing and manufacturing quality accessories for the motorcycle and ATV market and decided to officially launch the brand, "Pro Armor". I wanted to choose a name which portrays the durability and strength that goes into every product that Pro Armor was to produce.
Pro Armor has always tested and raced the parts we develop and sell to the public. National Championships have been won almost every year since the beginnings of Pro Armor used the same bullet proof parts which are made here. With names like Joe Byrd, Dustin Wimmer, Bill Ballance winning championships all running Pro Armor products. Racing has been an integral part of our business and continues to play a very important role in developing innovative and durable products..
It has been the steadfast commitment to developing only the very best components and making them with the utmost quality which has kept Pro Armor in the forefront of the industry.
We want to thank you very much for thinking Pro Armor and believing in our brand, Culture, our quality and our commitment to you, our customer!
