Keystone Automotive Operations welcomes Bodyguard Products LLC to its truck and off-road category. Family owned and operated, Bodyguard Products has been designing and manufacturing heavy-duty front and rear bumpers since 2000. The company’s origins are rooted in resourcefulness, as the first bumper was fabricated by founder Grant Mallicote to replace the one his father damaged after he struck a bull on their Texas ranch.
The company has grown significantly from its original small farm shop, relocating to Paris, Texas, in 2012 and expanding operations to a 37,000 square foot facility where all products are manufactured in-house using state-of-the-art equipment and processes. From raw material to finished product, all Bodyguard accessories are made in the U.S.
“Our mission is to build a new and different design, specifically built for each customer’s needs at a price people can afford,” the company stated in a new release. “We strive to not only offer top-quality products to our customers, but also exceptional customer service before and after your purchase.”
“Bodyguard is recognized as a leader in the premium bumper segment. They invest significant time and resources into developing the highest-quality bumpers and remain connected with their loyal customers — just a couple of the many aspects that make Bodyguard a great fit for Keystone. We are excited about the new partnership and look forward to growing together,” says Scott Percival, category manager.
