The breadth of Inno's premium quality car rack and cargo systems is the result of decades of industry experience within the automotive accessory and rack business. Inno Advanced Car Racks (formerly RV-Inno) is a division of Car Mate USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Car Mate Mfg. Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan. Car Mate is a publicly traded company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Founded in 1966 by Takaaki Murata, the inventor of the car seat headrest, Car Mate is today the largest manufacturer of automotive accessories in Japan. The company's car rack division was launched in 1976. Today INNO has almost a 60% share of the Japanese car rack market, with their own manufacturing facilities in Japan, China and facilities in the USA to keep up with the growing demand. Inno car racks first appeared on the U.S. market in 2003. Not surprisingly, their racks have caught on quickly in the States and are considered an ideal match for the nation's growing legions of active "weekend warriors" and professional athletes who demand technological superiority.
