American Expedition Vehicles

American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) was founded in 1997 in Montana, United States, and is a manufacturer of off-road and overland vehicle parts and accessories, as well as turnkey off-road vehicle packages, primarily based on Jeep Wranglers,[2][3] but since 2015 also on Ram Pickups.[4] Michael Chetcuti and business partner, Michael Collins, bought into the 15-year-old business in 2006 as partners with founder Dave Harriton.[5]

All AEV parts are designed and tested in Missoula, Montana, where the company's R&D facilities are located. In 2007, AEV expanded near Detroit, Michigan by establishing a corporate office, vehicle build facility, and warehouse in Commerce Township and Wixom, Michigan.[1][4] Today, over 90% of their products are manufactured within 200 miles of Detroit.[3][6]
