Irvine, CA (April 27, 2022) – Phillips Connect expanded its business facilities to accommodate explosive growth since 2020. The new capacities in manufacturing, R&D, warehousing, and a new headquarters complex reflect the increasing recognition of its intuitive and scalable telematics solutions by major transportation and logistics companies.
In the last five years, Phillips Connect leveraged long-standing relationships from Phillips Industries with trailer OEMs and fleets to develop trailer telematics solutions that best complement the new technology standards in the trucking industry. Phillips Connect understood early on that smart trucks need smart trailers to perform at their best, so they began the process that would later make them the segment’s leader. Founder and CEO of Phillips Connect, Rob Phillips noted, “From the rate that our company is growing and the feedback we’ve gotten from the largest trailer fleets in North America, I can confidently say we’re on track to meet our goal.”
Phillips Connect’s recent expansion includes:
Phillips Connect’s new warehouse in Irvine, CA
Phillips Connect’s testing/development lab
Phillips Connect’s conference and training center in UCI Research Park
Phillips Connect’s 10,000 square-foot HQ in UCI Research Park
“The Phillips name in the commercial vehicle industry means reliability, quality, innovation, and a solutions-based mind-set,” said Phillips Connect’s VP of Operations, Greg Jones. “At Phillips Connect, we have drawn on that reputation as we position ourselves to be the premier telematics supplier to the customers Phillips has served for decades.”
Phillips Connect also has plans to expand to the European market, with its initial touchpoint through a partnership with Phillips Europe in Poland.
