Truck-Lite celebrates Rubbolite’s 90th anniversary

Truck-Lite Europe is celebrating the 90th anniversary of its Rubbolite brand.

Established in the United Kingdom in 1924, Rubbolite has grown into a respected lighting brand and is best known for providing a robust and durable housing that is flexible and can withstand heavy impacts without damaging the lamp.

According to Truck-Lite, the brand became popular amongst users as the products helped to lower maintenance costs and solved problems such as broken bulb filaments and cracks in lamp housings. 

Managing Director for Truck-Lite Europe, Aaron Rylance, said, “We are delighted to be celebrating Rubbolite’s 90th Birthday and hold the Rubbolite brand close to our hearts here at Truck-Lite, as it paved the way throughout the UK and set the gold standard for vehicle lighting.”

He added, “Since it started in 1924, the brand has continued to support the commercial vehicle industry and its longevity serves as a testimony to the dedication of the past and present employees of Truck-Lite – they are the backbone of the organization and deserve all the recognition and are looking forward to a century of serving our customers”.”

To celebrate the occasion, Truck-Lite will be holding a champagne reception at the CV Show in Birmingham on 29 April.
