Truck-Lite Co., LLC, is a worldwide leader in heavy-duty lighting, wire harness and visibility systems.
Since 2009, Scorpion Automotive have been Truck-Lite’s manufacturing partner producing over 100,000 Vehicle Truck & Trailer LED Lighting and Bulb Failure Monitoring units. Installed by many major truck and trailer companies, Scorpion manufacture several LED lamp models including the latest model M900. With its three dimensional shape, the model 900 is a revolutionary design with unique visual features that improve visibility and safety on the road. These include a patented progressive directional indicator for increased turning awareness and homogenous lighting functions that also gives the vehicle an iconic aesthetic signature. These visual features are coupled with intelligent in-built sensing and increased connectivity through 5 additional take-offs making the lamp not only eye-catching but practical and compatible for even the most complex applications. The additional take-offs of tail, stop and reverse allow multiple additional and auxiliary functions to be integrated into the rear lamp. This allows easier fitting and reduced harnessing compared to standard kits. The model 900 also offers an option to have a proximity stalk with in-built ultrasonic proximity sensors which detects rearward objects when reversing, visually notifying the driver as they approach an object by frequency of flash rate.
Scorpion was invited to Truck-Lite’s annual global supplier summit at the Willow Bay Theatre in Jamestown, New York last month where Scorpion MD, Mark Downing was presented with Truck-Lite’s UK Supplier of the Year 2017 Award. “Our suppliers each have an important role in Truck-Lite’s success,” said Martin Schroeder, Truck-Lite’s Vice President of Worldwide Purchasing. “We were pleased to honour this year’s winners and look forward to a continued partnership in the future.”
