Safe Fleet, Belton, Mo., acquired Rear View Safety (RVS), a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based provider of back-up camera systems and video-based road safety solutions.
“We are delighted to welcome the Rear View Safety business into the Safe Fleet family. This acquisition supports our vision to build the leading global provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles,” says John Knox, president and CEO of Safe Fleet. “The addition of Rear View Safety expands Safe Fleet’s leadership position in specialty video products for fleet vehicles in North America and one of the top suppliers worldwide. The RVS product line is complementary to Safe Fleet’s existing video products and positions Safe Fleet as a leading video supplier in all of its fleet end markets.”
RVS’s headquarters and operations will remain in Brooklyn, and Joseph Schechter will continue leading RVS as vice president.
“Customers will continue to interact with their existing RVS contacts and locations,” Schechter adds. “We’re very excited about joining the Safe Fleet family and working together to provide comprehensive solutions for the safety and security needs of the fleets worldwide.”
The RVS acquisition is the sixth for Safe Fleet, which was formed in September 2013 when ROM Corp. and SMI Corp. merged.
