Developing Custom Headlamp Solutions

Signature Lighting Design

Grote brings a team of experts in heavy-duty headlamps to the process of designing and developing custom headlamps. When paired with our best-in-class light engines, proprietary deicing technology, striking signature designs and rugged, durable construction, the result is a solution that is custom-made for your needs.

We can even bring your brand identity into the designs for a more integrated, premium result.

Innovative Prototyping Enables Better Driver Experience

Thanks to Grote’s robust engineering and design capabilities, we are able to rapidly develop, test, and prototype our designs. This allows us to conduct night drives early in the development process before tooling is kicked off. This lowers the risk of the project by ensuring that the design and performance are exactly what you need before any money is spent on tooling.

Grote Deicing Technology

Maximize Uptime and Increase Profitability

Lighting solutions from Grote bring you the latest safety technology, including our proprietary design and process for LED headlamp deicing.

An Active Safety Feature

From the moment the driver starts the ignition, Grote’s deicing system begins to melt away snow and ice by transferring heat through the lens. This active safety feature makes use of a patented process for creating a thermally conductive trace on the lens.

Uptime is Non-Negotiable

Grote knows the importance of uptime to your customers, which is why we carefully designed our heat grid to melt away layers of snow and ice in just minutes and actively prevent additional ice buildup. This proven system allows increased uptime and safety in the harshest winter environments and provides the driver maximum visibility to stay focused and alert. In humid environments, the grid continues to maximize safety by eliminating condensation, which leads to a safer road for everyone.

Headlamps for Every Application

Rugged solutions for tough environments.

When you need headlamps and other forward lighting for your off-road application, Grote headlamps are rugged enough for even the toughest off-road use. With a variety of sizes, we can work with you to build the right solution for your equipment.

A Global Headlamp Platform

Our 90mm light engine technology can be used in a wide variety of applications. Grote’s patented bi-optic technology features an inner lens and a forward-facing reflector that work in alignment to produce a light output with double the optical efficiency of most benchmarked and documented LED forward-lighting lamps.

With so may choices for both on- and off-road applications, we have you covered with a rugged, custom solution for your forward-lighting needs.

State-of-the-art Manufacturing

Grote’s innovation in headlamps doesn’t end with the design and engineering stage. Since opening in 2020, Grote’s Next Generation Manufacturing Center (NGMC), a new manufacturing environment dedicated exclusively to the production of LED headlamp products, has been at the forefront of LED manufacturing technology. Following the debut of multiple successful OE LED headlamp programs, Grote has continued to invest in NGMC, expanding its resources and upgrading its capabilities.

NGMC now boasts additional presses, multiple SMT lines, in-house molding, metallizing, coating systems, and an automated system to apply Grote’s proprietary lens de-icing technology. Robotic assembly and highly automated workstations throughout NGMC put a focus on precision, tight tolerances, and strict quality control.

By bolstering our proven methods with better systems and improved equipment we have been able to decrease lead times, reduce risk, and streamline production.
