The HDL Difference

Home About Us

Real-world needs drive our R&D

Putting people at the front of our thinking is what drives innovation, and sets us up to deliver LED products that exceed quality and safety expectations while remaining cost-effective. We prioritize rigorous field testing, and put every ounce of re-investment, tooling, design and development into delivering solutions that stand up to the demands of the road, and meet the quality and safety needs of drivers everywhere.

From your concept to our completion

We take direct input and feedback from drivers, engineers, purchasers, fleet managers, and everyone who requires a heavy-duty lighting solution. We never stop at “close enough.” Instead, we invest our time and energy toward delivering solutions that always go the extra mile.

We make LED lighting solutions happen

As our customer, we invite you to bring a specific need to us, no matter how nuanced or targeted. Our R&D department routinely works with client-side engineers to solve challenges related to existing tooling, even if it means bringing a brand-new product to market. In the end, we seek to deliver solutions that will solve challenges, help you manage costs, and keep all drivers safe.

A history of quality LED lighting solutions

When LED lights started to show up in the heavy-duty trucking industry in the ‘90s, only a handful of companies added LED to large product catalogues. When HDL entered the market, we made a critical decision to be LED-only, and to focus on the heavy-duty industry. This focus continues to guide us today, and helps us respond quickly to the ever-changing safety and lighting needs of the industries we serve.

We stay ahead of the market

HDL stays on the leading edge of our market by consistently putting people and business needs first, then pushing technology forward to create solutions. Our agile business process helps us look around the bend, see where the market is headed, and build from the standpoint of what customers need today and tomorrow. We support OEMs and the after-market, and work closely with them on R&D before any product hits the shelf. In fact, we never rush a product to market, but put it through rigorous testing to ensure it performs the way that customers need.

Committed to partnerships

We work with multiple manufacturing facilities in order to leverage strengths and capacities, and accommodate changing business cycles, industry needs, shipping, timing and more. Our facilities are certified ISO-9001 and ISO/TS 16949. In the field, our sales and service reps understand what it takes to build great relationships, and they share our desire to solve challenges.

Whether you have drawings and designs in mind, or just an idea, you can contact a rep in your region to learn more or continue a conversation at any time. Finally, we believe a warranty is only worth what the company is worth. We’re proud to say that our warranty rate is well below the accepted industry standard.
