Q1 2020

16 EU BUSINESS NEWS / Q1 2020 , Brimming with Bright Ideas When it comes to vehicle lighting, there are few options finer than Truck-Lite Europe Ltd. This talented teamguarantee that your lights are not just up-to-spec, but the best on the market. Proud winners of the award for Best Vehicle Lighting Technology Innovators 2019 in the European Enterprise Awards 2019, we took a closer look to find out more. Founded in 1924, this Harlow-based business has gone from strength to strength in the last 96 years. The need to make the most of advancing technology has encouraged Truck-Lite Europe to keep moving forward, whilst innovation has seen it take its rightful place as a forerunner in LED and incandescent lighting technology, mirror manufacture and trailer assemblies. Truck-Lite Europe has long endeavoured to be seen as the ‘Vision Systems’ expert and has developed world class manufacturing and testing capabilities to do this. The UK plant in Harlow is home to these laboratory facilities where the company has been validating its products for in excess of fifty years. It is one of the rare lighting manufacturers that works directly with certification bodies such as VCA and TUV SUD. While based in Harlow, Truck-Lite has maintained a global presence with over eleven manufacturing locations worldwide that export to over sixty countries. The results are exceptional, such as the newly developed and highly innovative Model 900 LED rear lamp. This is a product that has taken the market by storm. Originating in the Harlow plant, this design features homogeneous light brackets, progressive direction indicating and optional proximity sensing. It’s not the only way in which Truck-Lite Europe has been an innovator, putting the first all LED rear lamp on the market. Of course, innovation is only part of the Truck-Lite Europe story, Jan20462 and another major factor in the appeal of the company comes from its dedicated Trailer Support Team. These not only offer multiple trailer lighting kits, but also come with a Lifetime Warranty option. These kits include dedicated support from the company’s internal experts, as well as free Trailer Kit Best Practice training. While Truck-Lite Europe is proud to provide products for aftermarket users, it is even prouder that it has a position as preferred supplier to many of the Original Equipment manufacturers within the automotive, truck and trailer industries. It also provides items to the construction, agriculture and military markets, often tailored to the purpose and always of exceptional quality. Looking forward, Truck-Lite Europe intends to continue raising the brand awareness it has been working on across Europe and further afield. It is currently introducing its RIGID product range of LED products for on and off-road, as well as heavy-duty and commercial vehicles to customers in the Middle East. With regards to Europe, the plan is to attend the IAA in Hannover, Germany. As one of the most important global commercial vehicle shows in the world, and only taking place every two years, it is the ideal opportunity for Truck-Lite Europe to demonstrate and display its excellent and innovative array of products and services. As a company, Truck-Lite Europe has made several charitable contributions, the most recent of which is RIGID lighting to the Drive 4 Wildlife project vehicle. This is a vehicle modified to create Uganda’s first animal ambulance, for which the high-quality lighting system will be incredibly useful during night-time rescues. The addition of light bars, pods and accessory lights should make all the difference to an animal in need. In all, Truck-Lite Europe is a company built on innovation, continually moving towards the next technological step. It’s this tireless endeavour that has driven the company forward to its well-earned success.
