Kansas City, Mo. – WELD is happy to welcome HiPer Technology to the family. HiPer is the largest manufacturer of high performance “super structural” carbon fiber wheels for all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and side-by-side wheels (UTV). HiPer made its debut with the WELD family at the 2015 SEMA Show.
“HiPer develops products using super structural carbon fiber composite resins. This allows the wheel to be significantly lighter and more durable than their competitors. HiPer wheels have won championships in cross-country, motocross, short course, and desert racing through weight reduction and the ability to absorb impacts.
“WELD is excited to add HiPer’s products to our portfolio of premium performance products. This strategic acquisition brings new markets as well as cutting-edge materials and processes to WELD,” said WELD president and CEO Norm Young. “We were attracted to HiPer due to its leadership in advanced carbon fiber composite technology, and shared motorsports success and history.”
Young says technology from HiPer will be integrated into WELD wheels where it strategically fits. “The HiPer brand is unique and well respected by its customer base and something that we will keep intact. In addition, we have an aggressive plan to provide the resources necessary to continue to grow the brand.”
