Carbon Winches was designed and engineered by an Australian Offroad Business KPD Industries. A 4-year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all options that were available at the time. The Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability and toughness being tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including Iceland and the Middle East.

Many other products on the market simply didn’t cut it in the Australian Outback including some very popular world-renowned brands so we built our own. Now is the time to show the world the quality and reliability we have developed.
