Founded in 1965, Stoneridge, Inc. is a global designer and manufacturer of highly engineered electrical and electronic components, modules and systems for the commercial vehicle, automotive, off-highway and agricultural vehicle markets. Our products and systems are critical elements in the management of mechanical and electrical systems to improve overall vehicle performance, convenience and monitoring in areas such as emissions control, fuel efficiency, safety and security. Our extensive footprint, including our joint ventures, encompasses more than 20 locations in 15 countries and enables us to supply to global and regional commercial vehicle, automotive, off-highway and agricultural vehicle manufacturers around the world. Our custom-engineered products and systems are used to activate equipment and accessories, monitor and display vehicle performance and control, and provide vehicle security and convenience.
Our product offerings consist of vehicle instrumentation systems, vehicle management electronics, application-specific switches and actuators, sensors, security alarms and vehicle tracking devices and monitoring services. We supply the majority of our products, predominantly on a sole-source basis, to many of the world’s leading commercial vehicle and automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and select non-vehicle OEMs, as well as certain commercial vehicle and automotive tier one suppliers. These OEMs are increasingly utilizing electronic technology to comply with more stringent regulations (particularly emissions and safety) and to meet end-user demand for improved vehicle performance and greater convenience.
Our technology and our partnership-oriented approach to product design and development enables us to develop next-generation products and to excel in the transition from mechanical-based components and systems to electrical and electronic components, modules and systems.
