Optronics Marks 50-Year Anniversary With New HQ, Website, Logo

Optronics International, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry, kicked off its 50th-anniversary celebration with the announcement that it will be moving its North American headquarters into a new 200,000-square-foot facility on a 17-acre campus.

Accompanying the announcement was the introduction of a new 50th-anniversary logo and a newly revised corporate website.

Details of the new facility, logo, website and other related developments will be presented to the industry at Optronics booth 5191 during NTEA Work Truck Week 2022, scheduled for March 8–11 in Indianapolis.

“Fifty years is a milestone that few companies ever achieve,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “I’m happy and proud to say that Optronics has enjoyed five decades of continuous growth throughout a myriad of economic cycles as well as the current pandemic with its related supply chain challenges.”

Established in 1972, the company has thrived, but Johnson points to the most recent decade as Optronics’ most pivotal, asserting that the company dramatically altered the competitive landscape in the commercial-vehicle lighting and harness business, inexorably disrupting the status quo in the process.

“Our 2020 acquisition of USA Harness alone made Optronics one of only a few manufacturers capable of fully serving the light-, medium- and heavy-duty commercial-vehicle industry with both lighting and harness technologies,” Johnson said. “This is just the beginning of the sea change that is to come.”

With 700 staff members worldwide, Optronics will ultimately consolidate its three current Oklahoma-based operations into the new Tulsa facility and will maintain its Goshen, Indiana, location and its USA Harness manufacturing plant in Winnsboro, Texas.

The Tulsa campus will serve as the company’s corporate headquarters, as well as a research and development lab, assembly plant and distribution hub, and will allow Optronics to immediately expand to accommodate rapid growth. 

Optronics also has taken the occasion of its anniversary to highlight its updated web presence and the introduction of a revised Optronics USA Harness logo, which includes a representation of the company’s signature Glo-Light lamp as a central feature. Through the remainder of 2022, the logo also will include a “50 years” designation. 

“We’re looking forward to first publicly celebrating our anniversary with staff, customers and industry contacts during Work Truck Week 2022,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics International. “Our interactive booth will feature our anniversary graphics, highlight lighting and harness displays and enable us to access interactive content.”

Optronics’ website makes it easy for users to select and filter information on more than 3,000 of the industry’s most advanced lighting and harness product offerings, according to the company. The site also includes a 360-degree product-viewing feature that allows users to closely examine products from all angles while accessing technical and product data.

The website includes more than 500 recently added items, including Optronics’ “Smoke Series” lamps, new trilingual packaging and a variety of multi-function lamps, DOT utility lamps and white LED lamp products. Optronics also has a number of unique new lighting solutions now under development. 

All Optronics LED lamps come with Optronics’ no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty that will replace any lamp if even one diode fails. When Optronics’ LED lighting is purchased in conjunction with its patented USA Plus Harnessing, the entire system is protected by the no-hassle lifetime warranty.

“Although we try to do it in every interaction, all of us at Optronics would like to offer our deepest and most sincere thanks to our customers,” Johnson said. “Not only have they made our first 50 years possible; they have made each of them a resounding success.”

Optronics products are available in the United States and Canada through the company’s extensive

      Announced late last year, the name change will include a new corporate logo and identity as the organization follows a strategy to unify the global brand and promote efforts to transform the organization’s business portfolio. Accordingly, the global brand NGK Spark Plug Co. LTD will also begin operating under the English tradename Niterra Co., Ltd on April 1.
      “It is an exciting time in the long and storied history of NGK Spark Plug., LTD,” said Michael Schwab, president, and CEO. “We are becoming an increasingly progressive corporation as we strive to meet our vision for the future. A future where we expand our core ceramic technologies, explore capabilities beyond our traditional areas, and challenge ourselves to develop solutions and services that use technologies to resolve social issues while contributing to a sustainable society.”
      Niterra, a coined word, combines the Latin words Niteo, meaning shine, and Terra, meaning planet earth. The corporation chose the new name, logo and colors represented to present a broader image of its modern identity.
      The company will continue to use the trusted NGK and NTK brands for its spark plug and ceramic-related product portfolio.

      MEMA, the Vehicle Suppliers Association, presented its new brand and business structure at a virtual member town hall.  
      North America’s leading trade association for manufacturers of motor vehicle components will now operate under one umbrella organization with two groups: MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and MEMA Original Equipment Suppliers.
      Over the decades, MEMA’s influence expanded as the industry evolved, establishing four divisions: the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Associations (AASA), Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), Motor Equipment Remanufacturing Association (MERA) and Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA).
      The new structure will create a stronger, more unified organization that can better serve and represent constituents by convening all members under just two groups, MEMA leaders said.
      “Rapid changes are impacting our industry. It was the right time to rethink our strategy to better address member needs,” said Bill Long, MEMA president and CEO. “Our member companies have more in common today than ever before. We will provide more effective programming and agility to react to industry changes by streamlining the organizational structure.”
      Working with Gyro Creative, a Detroit branding agency, MEMA leadership went through a months-long review of its branding and value proposition, as well as member surveys and competitive analysis. The new look and color palette is modern, progressive, and bold.
      “No other organization can compare with MEMA’s longevity, respect, depth of knowledge, and commitment to the vehicle supplier industry,” said Long, who added that MEMA’s mission, vision and dedication to its members and the automotive and commercial vehicle industry have not changed.
      “Members will appreciate this structural simplification as it makes it easier for members to access the value MEMA provides today, and we believe it will create more value long-term,” said Megan Gardner, executive director, marketing and communications. “The new brand better represents our forward movement.”
      As part of its rebranding and realignment, MEMA also has announced a number of new leadership changes and appointments. The new MEMA Leadership structure is as follows:
      Bill Long, president and CEO, MEMA Ann Wilson, senior vice president, Government Affairs Paul McCarthy, president and CEO, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers John Chalifoux, chief sustainability officer and COO, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers Julie Fream, president and CEO, MEMA OE Suppliers Collin Shaw, chief commercial officer and COO, MEMA OE Suppliers In addition, a number of internal promotions and appointments have been announced at MEMA, including:
      Megan Gardner as executive director of Marketing and Communications Liz Goad as executive director of Events  Mike Jackson executive director of Strategy and Research Other developments include:
      The Center for Sustainability – a new platform for all members as they navigate the increasingly complex processes and requirements of a successful sustainability program. A resource for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion where staff and members can engage in meaningful dialogue and share best practices to develop safe and welcoming business environments. Greater access to member councils, programming, events and MEMA’s advocacy staff in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the new MEMA, visit
