Compton, California (February 16, 2016)  Recently, Larry McRae announced his retirement from Poison Spyder. While building Poison Spyder into an industry leading brand, Larry has been an innovator, establishing himself as an icon and entrenching himself in the off-road aftermarket industry and Jeep culture. Under Larry’s stewardship, Poison Spyder has become the benchmark in premium aftermarket Jeep armor while setting a high watermark for quality and brand authenticity. Larry’s engagement through the transition of Poison Spyder’s acquisition by Transamerican Manufacturing Group has served to ensure that the quality, craftsmanship and faithfulness to the PSC brand has and will remain, while products will continue to be manufactured in the same Banning, California facility.

Although Larry has moved into retirement, Poison Spyder will continue to be guided by the management, production, marketing and sales team that has been the foundation of the company alongside him and will be instrumental to the sustained growth of PSC.  Together with this team, TMG is committed to serving PSC customers with the same level of quality, workmanship and product innovation that they have relied on while preserving and protecting the beloved Poison Spyder brand.

Transamerican Auto Parts and Transamerican Manufacturing Group extends our best wishes to Larry McRae as he now embarks on this next phase of his journey.

Compton, California (February 1, 2016) – Greg Adler, President and CEO of 4 Wheel Parts, the global leader in truck, Jeep, SUV and off-road tires, wheels, lift kits and accessories, goes undercover to meet the employees who keep the company on the right track, on UNDERCOVER BOSS, Friday, Feb. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. During his undercover mission, Adler worked alongside employees performing a variety of jobs that represent key aspects of the company’s retail sales and distribution operations.

“4 Wheel Parts is in the midst of an aggressive national expansion and going undercover allowed me the opportunity to step out of my role as CEO and into many of the jobs that are the backbone of our company,” said Adler. “I learned a great deal about our business from the experience and as a result we have been able to enact many companywide initiatives. Most importantly, going undercover reinforced the importance of family to me and reminded me that as the business grows, we continue to keep the feeling of family that is the legacy of 4 Wheel Parts.”
