Snooper has been acquired by automotive technology specialist In Phase International, based in Nottingham.
Founded in 1979, Snooper specialises in mobile GPS technology for automobile and outdoor use and has a large customer base in the commercial vehicle and leisure driving sectors with its Truckmate brand.
In Phase International also owns the Road Angel brand, which has been transformed in recent years following multi-million pound investments in R&D and the release of a series of devices.
Snooper’s Operations Manager Tony McCann says: “This is a very exciting time for Snooper as we become part of the In Phase International family. They have a fantastic reputation within the automotive technology industry and their Road Angel devices dovetail very well with Snooper’s.
“There has already been major investment ploughed into our server and communication infrastructure to safeguard and speed up our systems and data and we will soon be launching a new customer support portal and a simple to use self-service centre. I can also confirm that we have new products in the development pipeline which we will announce in due course.”
Gary Digva, Director of In Phase International added: “We are proud to welcome another highly regarded, respected and cherished brand into the In Phase International group.
“The acquisition of Snooper will see the business continue to operate separately from Road Angel, with different offerings according to their market and specialisms but they will now share best practice and technology to drive them forwards together.”
