            We approach innovation differently. We believe it’s more important to solve a problem than to just build a product. We understand our customers’ businesses and we leverage our sophisticated technologies to build products that help their businesses run better every day.  

            Because we view the vehicle as an ecosystem - that’s part of a larger ecosystem - we are able to develop systems, not merely products. This is aided by our ability to program software, design and print circuit boards and manufacture in-house.

            Our products are designed to work hard and keep drivers safer on and off the road.


            Inside our fully equipped environmental testing laboratories located in North America and Europe, we put our products through rigorous testing. Our products are subject to extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals, real-world elements and much more to ensure top-of-the-line quality and performance.
