ECCO Acquires Public Safety Equipment (PSE)

April 02, 2014  | 

ECCO Group, with headquarters in Boise, Idaho, has announced its acquisition of Public Safety Equipment (PSE), which includes the international brands Code 3, Premier Hazard, Britax PMG, PSE Amber, and PSV.

ECCO Group is primarily engaged in sales of reverse alarms and amber warning products for commercial vehicles and recognizes PSE as the ideal platform to expand its global presence and to penetrate the worldwide emergency vehicle's sector, allowing the group to compete as a strong global player in both sectors, according to the company.

The expanded organization, known as ECCO Safety Group, will have manufacturing in nine locations on four continents, along with an additional four sales offices in Germany, France, Australia, and China, together employing 900 team members.

Chris Marshall, CEO of ECCO Safety Group explained, "This is a huge development for us as it brings strong brands, additional products, and substantial access to the global emergency services sector. ECCO Group is well known for supplying amber warning beacons and lightbars to the commercial vehicle aftermarket sector along with reverse alarms to OEMs, so this development will see an expanded group investing for the longer term in service and innovation to support its customers around the world. We are offering red and blue emergency lighting, mirrors, switches, signal and accessory lights, and wiper equipment drawing upon the expertise and experience that the PSE team brings with them."

ECCO Group currently employs 270 people around the world with manufacturing locations in USA, Europe, Australia, and a sales office in China.

PSE employs 630 people with manufacturing locations in the USA, United Kingdom, and China; along with sales offices in Australia, Germany, and France.
