Phillips Industries Announces New Partnership to Offer the Latest Innovations in Harness and Trailer Lighting Technology
Santa Fe Spring, CA (June 27, 2014) Phillips Industries entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Innotec Group earlier this year.  This partnership meshes Phillips’ well established quality reputation and customer relationships with Innotec’s world-class products, processes and experience.   The combination of Innotec’s BOARDFREE® products with Phillips’ award-winning STA-DRY® trailer harnesses offer the commercial vehicle industry a package of innovative electrical products that will lower costs. 
These new BOARDFREE® LED products are a great addition to the Phillips PERMALITE™ HD line of lights; they will be sold under the PERMALITE™ XT brand name.  The PERMALITE™ XT lights, with BOARDFREE® technology, can extend the life of the lights and reduce lighting violation events during roadside checks due to their durability and design.  BOARDFREE® in-mold technology is a process that eliminates the need for a traditional printed circuit board resulting in an ultra-thin light that generates no hazardous waste.  All PERMALITE® XT LED lights with BOARDFREE® technology feature:

  • Superior durability and impact resistance
  • Resistance to corrosion, harsh chemicals and UV exposure
  • Solid molded construction of lens and housing
  • High efficiency optical design
  • BOARDFREE® construction that allow for optimal heat management, leading to longer life expectancy
  • When it’s time to replace, there is no hazardous waste
  • Lights exceed FMVSS 108

A full line of superior LED exterior lights for trailers are now available in the commercial vehicle aftermarket through a new program launched this month. PERMALITE™ XT offers parts distributors and dealers the unique BOARDFREE® LED exterior lighting product manufactured in the U.S. by Innotec.

The full line of BOARDFREE® LED exterior lights offered through the new PERMALITE™ XT program include side turn, stop-tail-turn, mid-turn, and marker lights as well as low profile marker, clearance and license lights.
