Bob Tyler has always had love for hunting and fishing. However, the mess caused by a long day of trudging through mud and snow with his lab was taking a toll on his SUV. He wanted something washable that he could place in the cargo area of his SUV and protect his vehicle's carpet... and when he couldn't find one, he decided to make one.
And so, in 1988, Bob Tyler designed the original custom fit cargo liner and set in motion one of today's most successful automotive accessory companies, Husky Liners®. The success of the cargo liner spawned many new innovations based on vehicle specific custom fit protection. Husky Liners® expanded its brand to include Custom Fit Front and Back Seat Floor Liners, Heavy Duty Floor Mats, Custom Molded Mud Guards, Aluminum Tailgates and Contractor Racks, Gear Box® Under Seat Storage Boxes, Husky Shield® Paint and Head Light Protection Film, Quad Caps™ Bed Rail Caps and a variety of other products to serve the automotive aftermarket. In the last 20 years Husky Liners® has grown to a 197,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution operation and become one of the automotive aftermarket's leading sources for custom fit floor and cargo liners as well as many other automotive aftermarket accessories.
Today Winfield Consumer Products, Inc / Husky Liners® is a privately held company, whose primary business consists of designing, manufacturing and supplying automotive accessories for light trucks, SUV's, vans and cars to the aftermarket.

Design and Engineering
Husky Liners® is known for its commitment to the automotive aftermarket by getting quality interior and exterior products to the market quickly. Husky Liners® engineers and designers are dedicated to researching, developing and enhancing new and existing products. They work closely with other departmental managers and manufacturing engineers to recognize, prevent and solve production issues. They also work very closely with Customer Service to understand the needs of our customers. When someone calls with a question about a part, they are frequently surprised to find themselves speaking with the individual who designed the part and fit it to a vehicle like theirs. The direct contact with customers makes sure the designers know the fit of the parts and over the years has created a very loyal customer base.
The Customer Service of Husky Liners® is second to none. When you call during working hours, you will be greeted by a friendly voice that is part of our customer service team with an average of 12 years experience. This is with a Company that has only been around since 1988. If you have further questions, you may be transferred to an engineer that designed the part, or at least has a close familiarity with it. After you have placed your order, you will not have to wait long to receive it. Virtually all of our orders received scheduled for immediate shipment are shipped within 24 hours. Combining great customer service with a great product has made Husky Liners the quality choice for vehicle protection for over 20 years.
