In 2005, a local fishing reel company closed its doors for the last time in Hegins, PA, and like many other American companies, began outsourcing more parts and production overseas. Employees were disheartened about losing their jobs in an industry they were so passionate about, so when Greg heard this, the reels began to spin—what if there could be a completely American-made fishing reel in the market? After countless hours of brainstorming, collaborating with the past experiences of our new team members, and leveraging knowledge and experience gained from building Solar Innovations®, the idea of IRT® was born.
Every product we carry is either 100% made in the USA, handcrafted in the USA, assembled in the USA, or mostly comprised of American Made components.
