Truck-Lite Finalizes Acquisition Of TrackPoint Systems LLC

Truck-Lite entered a joint development project with TrackPoint in January 2017 with the goal of communicating information from Truck-Lite's Light-Out Detection System to a fleet's back office.

Truck-Lite Co., a leader in heavy-duty and off-road lighting, telematics, engine protection, safety and visibility systems, has completed its acquisition of TrackPoint Systems LLC, a supplier of asset management solutions to the transportation, utility, construction, oilfield and government sectors.

Truck-Lite entered a joint development project with TrackPoint in January 2017 with the goal of communicating information from Truck-Lite’s Light-Out Detection System to a fleet’s back office. TrackPoint’s solar-powered and wireless capabilities significantly complemented the Road Ready by Truck-Lite technology roadmap; since then, Road Ready by Truck-Lite has developed into an independent business unit and provides a smart trailer network tied to telematics.

“Entering an agreement with TrackPoint was a key factor in Truck-Lite’s emergence as a leading telematics systems provider,” said Brian Kupchella, Truck-Lite CEO. “By combining our resources and expertise, we’ve built the most dynamic and customizable trailer telematics network available.”
