Phillips Industries Continues History of HDT Top 20 Awards


Santa Fe Springs, CA (March 5, 2019) Phillips Industries’ QWIK-CHECK™ is one of Heavy Duty Trucking’s 2019 Top 20 Products. The Top 20 award will be presented to Phillips Industries’ representatives during the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, March 18-21.

For this year’s awards, HDT editors chose top products introduced in 2018 based on their level of innovation, ability to address significant industry issues, and potential benefit to the bottom line. Additional consultation with the HDT Editorial Advisory Board made up of fleet executives and managers finalized the Top 20 spots.

A Phillips Industries product has secured a spot on HDT’s Top 20 list multiple times over the past ten years, proving the company’s commitment to solving fleet problems through product development. Rob Phillips, president and COO, commented about this latest recognition of Phillips’ product innovation, “It’s in Phillips’ DNA to solve problems for fleet operators; it’s where we started and it’s even more true today. We understand our success relies on helping vehicle operators reach their total-cost-of-ownership goals. We appreciate the recognition from Heavy Duty Trucking.”

The QWIK-CHECK quickly and easily confirms power within the 7-way connection between the tractor and trailer. Designed for integration into the electrical system of the nosebox, it eliminates the immediate need for a continuity tester, visually confirming an electrical signal from the tractor to the trailer. With the tractor turned on, and power supplied to the 7-way connection, the color-coded LED lights of the QWIK-CHECK will light up as each circuit receives power.
