Clarience Technologies acquires Fleetilla

Jan. 14, 2022
Like the Southfield, Michigan-based company's Road Ready advanced telematics, Fleetilla produces hardware and application platforms that are modular and extensible, enabling the incorporation of newer technologies as they become available.

Clarience Technologies, parent company to Truck-Lite, DAVCO filtration systems, and Road Ready advanced telematics, has acquired Fleetilla, a telematics provider that serves commercial trucking and transportation, accelerating efforts to bring the next-generation solutions that are expected to be in high demand as the industry adopts electric and autonomous vehicles.

“As connected technologies become the digital backbone supporting electric and autonomous vehicles, we want our solutions to set the industry benchmark,” said Brian Kupchella, CEO of Clarience Technologies. “Fleetilla offers unique solutions that complement our Road Ready products and strengthens our technology foundation as we develop next-generation connected solutions for tomorrow’s electric and autonomous vehicles.” 

Founded nearly two decades ago, the company is an end-to-end solutions provider for GPS fleet security, trailer tracking, and equipment monitoring. Like Road Ready, Fleetilla produces hardware and application platforms that are modular and extensible, enabling the incorporation of newer technologies as they become available. Fleetilla can be found on trailers and other assets across the United States as well as South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and West Africa.

“In addition to our deep understanding of telematics and innovative offerings in this space, our customers can now benefit from the breadth of commercial vehicle products, automotive engineering, and manufacturing capabilities that Clarience Technologies brings,” said Pradeep P. Kumar, founder and CEO of Fleetilla. “Along with the Clarience team, Fleetilla is now well-positioned to offer the next generation of telematics solutions to our current and prospective customers.”

The acquisition of Fleetilla comes only one day after DAVCO, also owned by Clarience Technologies, announced that its new $3.5 million Advanced Electronics Manufacturing Center in Saline, Michigan, would begin building Road Ready telematics hardware as the company prepares to fulfill the strong demand for its solutions. 

“Fleetilla is a nimble organization that has proven it can innovate at or beyond the pace of industry change,” said Nada Jiddou, Clarience Technologies EVP and general manager for Road Ready, who will oversee the Fleetilla business. “When you combine the technical capabilities and technologies from Fleetilla with our manufacturing scale, customer reach, and industry experience, we are taking a major step forward to achieve our bold vision for the future of transportation.”
