Temecula, CA and Phoenix, AZ – December 5, 2016 – PRP Seats, a leading manufacturer and distributor of custom seats, harnesses, and accessories for off-road vehicles, announced they have recently acquired Status Racing, LLC; manufacturer of custom composite race seats and accessories for the street and racing market. Status Racing will remain a distinctive brand with all operations moving to the PRP Seats headquarters in Temecula, California.
Although differing in their target markets, the two companies share a similar business model; offering american built, customizable seating options.
“We’re excited to take on this challenge and new market with Status Racing,” said Aaron Wedeking, PRP Seats’ founder and president. “We have a great process to create custom seats which will enable us to manufacture and ship Status seats in just a few weeks.

Once that happens, PRP Seats will continue to focus on developing and manufacturing products Built for Off-Road, while Status Racing will continue to offer the street car market a one-of-a-kind customizable seat, and quality accessories for their projects.”
