Off Road Evolution and EVO Manufacturing

Does everyone know that these are in fact two different companies?

I didn't. It doesn't really change the fact that EVO MFG makes a good/solid product. It just was surprising to me that all of a sudden, after buying their stuff for 5 years, they are in fact two different companies.

Very strange, and almost creepy since we've spent over 10 grand at their shop and we've always been under the same impression that EVO manufacturing was in fact the same company as Off Road Evolution.

Just wanted to share that in case people out there thought the same as I did.

Good to know.

Maybe the did it because one business is manufacturing and the other is service?

this makes sense. but two different people own it. i think one guy, mel, started both companies and someone else bought the other one...

That would make sense. Same guy - Same logo. Either way, good stuff and good pricing.

It legally makes sense to diversify the companies. That way if there's some sort of lawsuit on a part failing, the shop isn't held responsible.

Also, that way you have one complete organization that focuses on manufacturing and development. The shop focuses on selling and installing $hit! Makes sense for people like me that buy their parts, but have it installed at a local shop.

Also seems to make sense that the shop can get other parts too.

Love my Evo parts! I hope they expand and start making more.

Yes, they are two separate companies, owned and operated by the same family (and located in adjacent buildings). EVO MFG. is the parts manufacturing arm, and Off Road Evolution is the service and repair business (they will work on any vehicle and install any parts, not just EVO stuff). I should know, my wife works for EVO MFG and I do a lot of work with them.

Quality parts and great work.
