Safe Fleet, a provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles, today announced the acquisition of Seon. Safe Fleet designs and manufactures safety- and productivity-oriented components for the emergency vehicle, truck and trailer, utility vehicle, school bus, and transit bus end markets. Seon is the second acquisition in the last nine months and further broadens Safe Fleet’s extensive product offering, in line with its on-going growth strategy.
Seon is the manufacturer of video surveillance and fleet management solutions for school and transit buses. “Seon has developed and built an industry-leading software and hardware platform for mobile surveillance and fleet asset tracking and management,” said John R. Knox, Safe Fleet President and CEO. “Seon is uniquely positioned to offer transportation managers integrated tracking, routing, and video capabilities for passengers and vehicles. The Seon products and capabilities are a great addition to Safe Fleet’s existing portfolio and will help us achieve our vision to be the leading global provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles.”
Seon’s headquarters and main operations will continue in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, and Terry Akiyama will continue in his role as President of Seon. “Customers and suppliers will continue to interact with their existing Seon contacts,” Akiyama said. “We’re very excited about joining the Safe Fleet family and working together to provide comprehensive solutions for fleets’ safety and security needs worldwide.”
Seon will be joining complementary school and transit bus brands under the Safe Fleet umbrella, including Specialty Manufacturing, Pretoria, and Safe Fleet will continue to pursue new opportunities to expand the products and solutions it offers its fleet vehicle customers.
