SoundOff Signal originated in 1992 as a manufacturer of high-quality safety solutions. Company founder George Boerigter, who serves as Chairman of the Board, transformed a small startup company into an organization that now supplies high technology safety solutions across the globe.
We integrate Smart Design, a term used to illustrate our problem-solving approach to product development, when we bring new products to market. Smart Design is an iterative problem-solving process of discovery, ideation, and experimentation. This design philosophy was evident when we introduced our first product. At the time, research indicated that motorcyclists were inadvertently leaving their turn signals on after completing a turn, resulting in motorist confusion and leading to serious accidents. SoundOff designed a device that activated a beeping sound once the turn signal was activated, reminding the cyclist to turn the signal off once a turn was complete.
Our next innovation was to bring modulation to headlights via a heavy-duty flasher that provides attention-grabbing conspicuity to notify motorists of an oncoming emergency vehicle. Affectionately known as the “wig wag,” this technology has since been embraced and universally adopted by all segments of the emergency vehicle market.
We also introduced the GHOST light, an extremely bright, yet compact, versatile product, which resulted in SoundOff’s industry leadership and global market reach. This innovation was soon followed by the introduction of the Intersector Under-Mirror Light, designed to provide a unique, 180-degree vehicle profile illumination to signal approaching off-angle traffic.
Our most recent introduction is the nForce collection of products. nForce is the first full-line, tri-color family of lighting products on the market…designed to integrate aesthetically and functionally with today’s evolved police vehicle designs. We created a theme that would integrate with the next generation of vehicles through dynamic angles, crisp edges and sleek silhouettes to minimize size.
Our Smart Design approach is not applied solely to the emergency vehicle market. In 2002, we introduced the first LED warning lights for American school buses, offering improved activation time over traditional incandescent lighting to reduce stopping distance for trailing motorists. Today, SoundOff Signal is the primary provider of OEM school bus warning lights to help improve the safety of our children.

It can be said that TruckVault was created accidentally. In the 1980s Al Chandler owned and operated a construction company in Seattle, Washington. One of his employees drove a van equipped with a home-made drawer system not unlike today’s TruckVault. When Al saw this he decided to build one for his own truck but, rather than hauling tools, he built it to haul his big boy toys – guns, fishing and more. When his friends saw this drawer system they asked to have one for their trucks, too. The process was infectious and, within a years time, TruckVault was born. The first official TruckVault was manufactured in June of 1995 and the requests have poured in ever since.
It was originally assumed that TruckVault would manufacture more products for pickups than for any other vehicle. In the fall of 1995 however, TruckVault was displayed for the first time at a tradeshow – the NRA convention in Phoenix. Show-goers immediately recognized the potential for TruckVault’s products. To TruckVault’s surprise, the majority of attendees requested models built not for pickup trucks, but for their SUVs. This show was the catalyst for their present line of vehicle specific SUV organizers and multi-drawer command centers.
As more and more TruckVault products were ordered over the next two years, police, fire and law enforcement agencies discovered TruckVault. Recognizing the significance of this market, TruckVault began, in a small way, to advertise in public safety publications and exhibited for the first time at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in Orlando in 1997. Since that time, public safety and law enforcement sales have continued to climb and have been a key to TruckVault’s success.

Antenna Plus has been developing innovative antenna solutions since 1991. We have carved out the top quality spot for mobile solutions in the government, public safety, field service, AVL and road warrior markets. We have also developed superior performing antennas for telemetry and the new communicating kiosk/vending market.
Today, we produce antennas for cellular, PCS, GPS, WiFi, and most private radio frequencies – and can combine many of these together into one unit to make for a simple and easy-to-install solution. As an option, we embed the Trimble GPS receivers into the antennas to offer a full, two-way GPS experience for customers involved with AVL and Mapping solutions. For customers needing superior WiFi performance, we offer a WiFi Modem & Antenna that will extend the reach of your WiFi network to the vehicle with maximum speeds.
Overcoming the Challenge of Shielding
People who must use their laptop and wireless data modem in the car experience a reduction in performance. The metal and glass from the vehicle shields the modem from getting back to the cell site. This can impair the signal strength by as much as 20% or 10 dBi. By using our antennas, we get the signal out of the vehicle, elevate it on the roof, and then apply a 3 dB gain in our patented design to give you the greatest reach to the communication network. This increases the geographical area where you can still work and also results in faster data throughput speeds as your quality of connection to the wireless network is better.
Making the Best Antennas
Antenna Plus has worked very hard to be the top quality antenna manufacturer. We were the first company to design and patent low profile antennas that are now seen on most police and field service vehicles. The benefit of this form factor is a very long product life. Our antennas survive car washes, being swept by tree branches, and all environmental conditions. Each of our communicating frequency antennas has an omnidirectional 3 dBi gain – we believe this is the best for mobile solutions. Antenna Plus builds all of our products at our factory in the USA under the close scrutiny of our cofounder. This attention to detail ensures that each antenna that ships meets our stringent quality standards.
