Predator Diesel was started by Ryan more than a decade ago. Following in the footsteps of his forefathers by creating and developing a strong company that serves the needs of Consumers, Military Personnel, and Hummer Community. Ryan Wilson comes from a long heritage of Military, Government contractors, and Political figures. In the 18th Century, his family from his mother’s side left Berlin for South Africa. Later a distant relative Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger became the president of South Africa. Years later on the outbreak of World War 2 his grandfather Willard Carl Kruger led a key role for the war as a government contractor. Willard began work on a secret project with his close personal friend J. Robert Oppenheimer called the Manhattan Project. His father’s side immigrated from England and was part of both World Wars as well as the Vietnam War. Weeks after 9/11 Predator was contracted to develop extended range system for HMMWV’s leading the war in Baghdad. Within hours prototype systems were developed and sent out for approval resulting in thousands of units being implemented for our armed forces. Today, Predator Diesel has locations worldwide with extensive work in both the commercial and military markets. Ryan resides in San Diego with his wife and three children. He is an avid outdoors man, thrill seeker, and he's constantly chasing his next big venture. Whether the challenge is to create a cost effective solution for the military or shark diving off the California coast, he is up for it.
