Interior Offroad Equipment (IOR) started operations in Prince George, BC in 1974. It all started with early lift kits and a distributor agreement with The Warn Winch Company. IOR quickly realized that the ability to manufacture a line of winch bumpers in-house was needed and the first Interior Offroad fabrication division was started, followed shortly after by aluminum running boards and box liners were being manufactured in-house. Before long, more product lines, a BC Toll Free phone line and 40 page catalog were added as well as employing more staff members. Manufacturing and fabrication continued into a full time venture that currently operates out of our facility in Prince George. There, we manufacture hundreds of truck accessories using state-of-the-art technologies including the latest CAD/CAM as well as robotic plasma cutters and the newest welding processes all run by a workforce of skilled tradesmen and fabricators. If you can imagine it, we can build it.
A second warehouse and storefront were added in Edmonton and offers our Alberta accounts a shipping option within their own province. They have their own toll free lines and customer service center manned by a team of dedicated local professionals.
A third warehouse and storefront were added in Grande Prairie in 2019 and offers our Alberta accounts a second option for faster shipping. They have their customer service center manned by a team of dedicated local professionals.
As we surpass our 40th year of continuous operations in Western Canada we also look to the future. New lines and new products are added every year keeping IOR growing and competitive.
