ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations announced it has added ASA Electronics to its growing list of ATA Featured Products.
Offerings from ASA, an international manufacturer of premium audio and video mobile electronics, focus on reducing in-cab distractions for truck drivers.
"Safety is of the utmost importance to our industry," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "That's why we've been vocal supporters of efforts to reduce distracted driving and we're pleased to welcome ASA, a company that shares that value, to our Featured Product program."
"With drivers becoming more tech savvy, a typical truck cab is full of temptations that lead to distracted driving," said Justin Garver, national accounts manager for ASA Electronics. "With a driver almost seven times as likely to be in a safety-critical event when adjusting or looking at their stereo, the common stereos offered to fleets can easily be viewed as a major source of distraction that safety managers can address. At ASA Electronics, we have focused a tremendous amount of resources over a two-year period to develop our safety-centric Jensen Heavy Duty stereo that focuses on eliminating distracted driving, while understanding the importance of affordability."
ASA utilizes their state-of-the-art research and development department located in Elkhart, Ind., to design and build all products, from the ground up, to meet the specific needs of their respective industries. Each development endures a series of strenuous tests in ASA's testing laboratory to ensure they are able to withstand the rigorous, mobile environments that they're designed for.
For over 30 years, ASA has been specifically designing, engineering and testing their products to be able to handle the rigorous conditions encountered in the marine, recreational vehicle, powersports, ag/construction, bus and commercial industries. ASA's proprietary brands include JENSEN, JENSEN Marine, JENSEN Heavy Duty, Marine Audio, Voyager and Advent. ASA is a distributor for SIRIUS XM™ Satellite Radio and Polk products in all their specialty markets. ASA's products include high quality, feature-rich stereos, speakers, LCD TVs, observation systems, rooftop air conditioning units and other premium accessories built to the specifications of their respective industries.
