Military LED Vehicle Lights
MILITARY LIGHTING: FROM THE FRONT, DOWN THE SIDE, TO THE BACK
Truck-Lite Europe Ltd has developed its products in accordance with the ever growing demands of both the customers we serve and the technologies we have helped develop. We are evolving the way in which ‘Vision Systems’ are being viewed, and working with our OEM customers.
We manufacture lighting from the front to the back of the vehicle: headlamps, auxiliary lamps, floodlights, side markers and rear lamps, which are able to be mounted on various applications – from tanks and armoured vehicles, to recovery vehicles, four-wheeled drives and SUVs.
SUPPORTING OUR CUSTOMER WITH OUR TEAM
Truck-Lite globally provides vision solutions to various military organisations within the UN, involved in ISAF engagement. Military lighting systems are mounted to vehicles in both conflict and post-conflict arenas.
We take a 360° approach to our customer relations, keeping the company structure flat; removing the red tape, improving communication and bringing decision makers close to the ground. Our Managing Director Aaron Ryalnce insists on this. He said: “It’s vital to maintain a steady and transparent information flow - from those at the root of our company, right up through to the president. Our employees deal with customers and operations every day and we need to stay connected and remain nimble to meet the demands of those customers.” Truck-Lite’s global reach is part of our foundation, “…we don’t silo ourselves in terms of region,” Aaron continued, “We don’t have those barriers”.
QUALITY AS STANDARD
Our portfolio of off-road customers has led to products being developed to perform in some of the harshest conditions without dropping performance. Each of our products is put through one of the highest testing-specs in the industry, with up to 15 gruelling examinations: measuring everything from water-resistance and flammability, to dust and particle resistance; as well as being the only unit in the UK equipped to measure photometrics up to 30 metres, with our lab’s state-of-the-art optics and reflex bench. Each test ensures the security of our end-users and maintains the reputation of our customer base.
