Pro-gard is Bringing the Trunk Back to the SUV

CARGO SECURITY COVER 

Pro-gard’s new Cargo Security Cover is a means to safely stow away a wide range of equipment in the cargo area of an SUV. This new security solution will help prevent theft by keeping items out of sight, essentially creating a trunk in the SUV.

In addition to added security, the Cargo Security Cover provides additional mounting surfaces for accessories and electronics. With our no-holes-drilled installation, the cover is securely mounted to the Cargo Barrier and body of the vehicle using existing OEM mounting points. 

Constructed with a steel frame and topped with a heavy-duty rubber mat, the Cargo Security Cover is available for the Ford Interceptor Utility and Chevrolet Tahoe.

Whelen Engineering Launches Brand Advancement Strategy to Build on Tradition and Position for the Future

Chester, CT, March 2, 2017 - Whelen Engineering today introduced a new logo as a component of a comprehensive strategy to support its role as a leader in the emergency warning industry.  An integral component of Whelen's brand advancement initiative is a new tagline: Trusted to Perform.

The centerpiece of the new identity embodies Whelen's core message and its internal value as a company.  Trusted to Perform is designed to communicate the value and impact of a Whelen product in a global marketplace.  

Whelen exists to protect people when lives are on the line.  Whelen products have always been trusted to perform in the most demanding situations, just like the people who use them.  Trusted to Perform expresses the integrity of Whelen employees and the quality of their products.  

The initiative launched in early 2016 with a brand discovery phase that involved gathering research data from employees, distributors and end users.  The second and third phases of the project have involved the development of an updated visual and written identity.  

"Whelen has a compelling story to tell as a family owned, United States manufacturing company.  With this tagline, we are telling that story with greater clarity, impact, and reach," said George Whelen V, President and CEO of the company.

Pro-gard Push Bumpers for the 2017 Chevy Tahoe

Tina Altadonna - Friday, December 09, 2016

Pro-gard HD Push Bumpers 

The new Chevrolet Tahoe PPVs for 2017 feature an aerodynamic design change behind the front grill, that drastically alters how Push Bumpers mount to the vehicle.

Chevy has added "Active Aero Front Shutters" to 2017 Tahoe PPV, eliminating previous push bumper mounting locations for upper support brackets. Push Bumper bracketry cannot interfere with these shutters. 

Pro-gard's HD Push Bumpers require only lower tow hook mounting brackets, outside the affected area. Our current (2015+) design will fit the new 2017 Tahoe.
