HOW IT STARTED
Located on the front range of Colorado, we were a couple of adventure seeking, Toyota loving, videographers. On our travels, we needed a rack that would live up to the work load of our adventure video production. We were traveling with large amounts of equipment and camping gear but had very little place to store it. Constantly on the move, we needed a system that was adaptable and lightweight. Being a part of the 3rd gen 4Runner community, there was very little support for the platform. We quickly found ourselves designing a rack that packed in the utilitarian functions we all dreamed of.
We believe culture is everything, and as we expand our team, it remains an important focus for us. Members of our team are no stranger to the outdoors and share the same passion for their vehicles that you do. This passion carries over into every aspect of the business, from customer service to product design. On the weekends it’s not uncommon to find our team away on a trip together or putting in late night hours working on the team race car
As the industry has progressed, there is no shortage of new and exciting companies popping up. But what we have found is that many in the industry are afraid to revisit and improve upon their products. We are constantly finding new ways to test and improve our products. It's why we offer the strongest side plates in the industry and one of the first to integrate black oxide stainless hardware into their racks. This level of constant revision is difficult to achieve and it has become ingrained into the day-to-day at Sherpa. It is who we are as a company and we are proud of it. The end result is products that you don't have to worry about failing you when you need them.
