How We Offer Value to Our Customers

We integrate Smart Design, a term used to illustrate our problem-solving approach to product development, when we bring new products to market. Smart Design is an iterative problem-solving process of discovery, ideation, and experimentation. This design philosophy was evident when we introduced our first product. At the time, research indicated that motorcyclists were inadvertently leaving their turn signals on after completing a turn, resulting in motorist confusion and leading to serious accidents. SoundOff designed a device that activated a beeping sound once the turn signal was activated, reminding the cyclist to turn the signal off once a turn was complete.
Our next innovation was to bring modulation to headlights via a heavy-duty flasher that provides attention-grabbing conspicuity to notify motorists of an oncoming emergency vehicle. Affectionately known as the “wig wag,” this technology has since been embraced and universally adopted by all segments of the emergency vehicle market.
We also introduced the GHOST light, an extremely bright, yet compact, versatile product, which resulted in SoundOff’s industry leadership and global market reach. This innovation was soon followed by the introduction of the Intersector Under-Mirror Light, designed to provide a unique, 180-degree vehicle profile illumination to signal approaching off-angle traffic.
Our most recent introduction is the nForce collection of products. nForce is the first full-line, tri-color family of lighting products on the market…designed to integrate aesthetically and functionally with today’s evolved police vehicle designs. We created a theme that would integrate with the next generation of vehicles through dynamic angles, crisp edges and sleek silhouettes to minimize size.
Our Smart Design approach is not applied solely to the emergency vehicle market. In 2002, we introduced the first LED warning lights for American school buses, offering improved activation time over traditional incandescent lighting to reduce stopping distance for trailing motorists. Today, SoundOff Signal is the primary provider of OEM school bus warning lights to help improve the safety of our children.
Throughout our history, SoundOff Signal has explored the evolving needs of global markets, leveraging strategic business relationships to best serve our customers around the world. By forming multiple alliances and partnerships in Europe, Asia, Mexico, and South America, we build relationships that enable us to offer product and service solutions for the global markets we serve.
We realize that we must earn your business every day. As an employee-owned (ESOP) company, you can expect our team to remain your trusted partner in the markets we serve.
