Clarience Technologies in Southfield, parent company to Truck-Lite, Road Ready Advanced Telematics, and ECCO Safety Systems, announced it has acquired LED Autolamps, an Australian-based provider of commercial truck, trailer, and off-highway LED lighting solutions.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The changes happening in commercial transportation today are driving our customers to think and act globally and we must respond,” says Brian Kupchella, CEO of Clarience Technologies. “LED Autolamps helps us serve this growing base of global customers with the technologies and support, where and when they need it.”
The acquisition includes manufacturing and distribution operations in Australia and Europe, which strengthens Clarience Technologies’ global presence. LED Autolamps will work together with the Truck-Lite and ECCO brands to support heavy truck and trailer customers throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
“Becoming a Clarience Technologies company allows us to join the forces with Truck-Lite and many other well-respected brands to bring new technologies and sales opportunities for both companies to market,” says Tony Ottobre, managing director of LED Autolamps. “With LED Autolamps now part of the Clarience family, let me assure customers that you are in trusted hands.”
LED Autolamps was founded in 2002 and offers a focused portfolio of aftermarket LED products that deliver maximum value to the customer. Truck-Lite has been sold in Australia for more than three decades, serving the market differently that LED Autolamps, which the company says makes it a natural complement.
Clarience Technologies was launched in 2020 from several leading transportation technology brands. Company leaders saw impact new technologies were about to make to transportation, and they committed early on to forge a new company dedicated to finding better ways of applying these transformational technologies.
This acquisition comes less than a year after purchasing ECCO Safety Group, a supplier of ECCO and Code-3 lighting and alert systems for the commercial transportation, off-highway, and emergency markets.
“LED Autolamps is an industry leader with an outstanding reputation among customers in Australia, New Zealand and Europe and we are committed to ensuring its continued success well into the future,” says Kupchella. “They have a passion for growth that delivers results, making them an ideal fit within the Clarience Technologies family of brands.”
