What's in a name?

… It was more than 30 years ago, since INNO began its aspiration for innovation. From then on, we’ve made great attempts to design and manufacture  high-quality, original, and technologically advanced car racks for our active sports enthusiasts.

The breadth of our premium quality car rack and cargo systems is the result of decades of industry experience within the automotive accessory and rack business. Inno Advanced Car Racks (formerly RV-Inno) is a division of Car Mate USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Car Mate Mfg. Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.  Car Mate is a publicly traded company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The company’s car rack division was launched in 1976. Today INNO has almost a 60% share of the Japanese car rack market, with our own manufacturing facilities in Japan, China and facilities in the USA to keep up with the growing demand.

Inno car racks first appeared on the U.S. market in 2003. Our racks quickly caught on in the States and we are considered an ideal match for the nation’s growing legions of active “weekend warriors” and professional athletes who demand technological superiority.
