Australian company Piranha Off Road Products has been sold to McNaughtans Pty Ltd as of 17 June 2019.
Piranha has been a leader in off-road aftermarket products for over 30 years with Alan and Barbara Johnson first starting in ignition systems before creating their signature dual-battery systems, incorporating their massive range of dual-battery trays. The product line-up continued to grow as the Johnsons, who are keen travellers, realised there was a huge need for practical and reliable products for touring.
Grant Hamilton-Brown of McNaughtans is excited to add Piranha to the list of brands they own specialising in aftermarket products. McNaughtans started up in South Africa some 60 years ago and started up in Australia in 2003.
Piranha has always been proud of its Australian-owned status and Aussie manufacturing for the battery trays and other products where possible. It will be interesting to see how Piranha grows under the McNaughtans brand. Of course, only time will tell.
We’ll keep you posted as the handover has begun and the McNaughtans crew are busy integrating itself into the Piranha brand. At this stage the Bayswater factory and staff are all on board and able to help existing and new Piranha clients with the transition.
