ECCO Celebrates 50 Years of Safety
This year, ECCO celebrates 50 years of embracing our values of safety, innovation, and world class service. Throughout our celebration we’re taking the time to share what those values mean to us, how they’ve defined us over the last five decades, and how they will continue to shape us moving forward. At ECCO, 50 years is more than just a milestone, it is a time to observe all those who have joined us in pioneering high-quality solutions for the high-quality people who depend on them.
Back in 1972, ECCO was established by Carl Peterson with the advent of the first back-up alarm, and the company immediately set forward on its mission to provide effective, high-quality safety solutions for the world’s trade professionals. 50 years later, ECCO carries on its storied tradition of innovation and world-class dedication to customers.
With innovation engrained in our DNA, addressing industry problems with new products such as the self-adjusting back-up Smart-Alarm or audible warning Electric Vehicle Alert System is a cornerstone of our mission — but far more important are the hard-working people who use and trust our products every day.
In listening to those customers, we constantly develop new vehicle warning systems, lightbars, and worklights that are purpose-built to address industry safety concerns. Whether working with customers at the forefront of electric vehicle technology, or household names in transportation or agriculture, our close relationships with industry leaders allow us to stay ahead of the curve with new solutions and customisations — just as we started back in 1972. For ECCO, these last 50 years have been defined by each of the hard-working people we have strived to create high quality products for, and we look forward to carrying on that relationship for another 50 years.
Ahead of all the new safety solutions we’re looking to share this year, we are eager to celebrate this milestone in the ECCO story. As part of our anniversary celebration, this September we will be unearthing our time capsule, placed in front of our Boise, Idaho headquarters by our founders 50 years ago. We are incredibly excited to share this experience with all of those that have made ECCO what it is today, and all the partners and customers that have placed their trust in us throughout the last five decades.
