92 • RV PRO • March 2019 rv-pro.com A F T E R M A R K E T strong crossover potential for the North American RV market. The company is the manufacturer of the Tow-Pro Classic, which debuted in June 2014, and the Tow-Pro Elite, which was released in September 2015. All of the company's brake control- lers feature a clever design that allows them to be placed on the dash, rather than mounted by a driver's legs, which could compromise comfort or interfere with factory-mounted lower airbags. The company says its brake control- lers are designed to be easy to install and operate. The Tow-Pro Elite offers both pro- portional braking for roads and user-con- trolled braking for off-road driving. In Expansion Mode To grow the markets it serves, REDARC has expanded its presence at home and abroad. In North America, the company has a new warehouse in Smithfield, N.C., to grow its brand. And the company has exclusively partnered with national dis- tributor Keystone/ NTP-STAG to make its products available to the market here. Meanwhile, in Australia, the company is looking to hire more than 100 engi- neers, data specialists and other profes- sionals after completing an approximately $20 million expansion to its Lonsdale facility. The company says the addition of 33,000 square feet of advanced man- ufacturing space included such state-of- the-art equipment as a new surface-mount technology line for loading electronic Kittel (left) confers with an employee in the company's product testing area. Kittel says that after he purchased REDARC in 2007 he set out to create a corporate culture that values the people behind the brand as much as the product itself. REDARC spent about $20 million in 2018 to expand its facility, which included the addition of 33,000 square feet of advanced manufacturing space. State-of-the-art equipment added included a new surface-mount technology line for loading electronic components, and an electromagnetic compatibility chamber and a vibration test lab.
