Grote is a world leader in vehicle safety systems, providing a wide range of components for original equipment manufacturers and the vehicle aftermarket. Grote products are used as original equipment on semi-tractors and trailers, passenger cars, buses, industrial vehicles, recreational vehicles and agricultural machinery. Grote products are also sold in the heavy-duty aftermarket, the automotive retail environment, and the marine and recreational market.
A truly international company, Grote is headquartered in Madison, Indiana; with additional facilities in Toronto, Canada; Waterloo, Canada; Monterrey, Mexico; and Niederwinkling, Germany. Over 1,000 employees work in every phase of production, from design and engineering to manufacturing, testing, marketing and distribution. Grote has made a huge investment in design and engineering, both in terms of top caliber people and state-of-the-art design tools and equipment. Using the latest CAD development programs, designers can take a concept from the computer screen to a prototype faster than ever before. Long before any new product hits the market, it's been tested and proven in grueling real-world conditions.
All new designs meet specifications for SAE, DOT, and FMVSS, plus European and Japanese requirements, when appropriate. But even more important, Grote knows what it takes to meet the customer's requirements, so new designs will fit seamlessly into the customer's production process.
