Thule

Established in Sweden in 1942, Thule is the largest aftermarket rack manufacturer in the world.  With factories worldwide, the rack systems sold in the United States are predominately manufactured in Illinois.  They are the only rack manufacturer to crash test and stress test their products for durability and safety.  In 2009, Thule introduced their aluminum AeroBlade crossbar which is known to be the quietest crossbar in the industry.

TracRac

Established in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1995, TracRac is the predominate rack manufacturer for commercial racks on trucks, vans, commercial utility truck beds, and truck shells in the US.  Weight capacities are usually higher due to the heavier loads carried in commercial applications.

Yakima

Established in 1973 in Yakima, Washington this small machine shop made folding music stands in addition to car racks for ladders. Purchased in 1979, they refocused their energies on building the best roof racks in North America to carry kayaks and other sporting goods based in Arcata, California.  In 2009 Kemflo Int. purchased Yakima and moved manufacturing and assembly to Nanjing, China.  They’ve introduced four new rack systems using 3 optional crossbars in 2016.  Their new JetStream crossbar was designed to compete with the Thule AeroBlade in terms of aerodynamics, strength, and corrosion resistance.
