REDARC Signs Deal with NA Distributor TAP


REDARC has announced Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) as a North American distributor of REDARC’s diverse product portfolio of electric brake controllers, battery charging solutions, monitoring gauges, and accessories.

For more than 50 years, TAP has been a manufacturer, distributor, and seller of off-road parts for Jeeps and light trucks. TAP has numerous entities serving various niches in the automotive aftermarket under its corporate umbrella, including 4 Wheel Parts and Transamerican Wholesale.

“We’re delighted to partner with the Polaris Industries-owned TAP in the automotive aftermarket,” said Anthony Kittel, REDARC managing director. “They are now stocking our Tow Pro electric trailer brake controller range and accessories across all ninety-three of their 4 Wheel Parts stores and through their national wholesale distribution network.”

Led by its flagship Websites 4WheelParts.com and 4WD.com, TAP’s 22 consumer-oriented sites have facilitated consumer sales, service, and support.

“They’re on track to grow to a target of two hundred 4 Wheel Parts stores within the next 18 months and their DSI channel will be offering the Tow Pro range to new car dealerships across the U.S.,” said Kittel. “Our products including Smart Battery Isolator, BCDC dual battery chargers, Voltage Gauges and Manager30 battery management systems will also be stocked in their six distribution centers across the U.S.”

“REDARC offers premium off-grid towing and battery charging products and we are excited to add them to our 4WP lineup, especially to service our Overland and Trail Rig customers,” said Tim Watts, category director suspension and performance for 4WP. Their products are sleek, seamless, solid and built for everyday use, whether you’re in the Outback, on the trails at Moab or on your way to work.”
