When you come across a global automotive parts supplier like Hella at the SEMA Show, you know they will have something super cool and high-tech on display. What we found were the Hella Valuefit Blade LED Lights. These are actually very slim profile auxiliary high beam headlamps that offer dual-use on-road and off-road lighting modes.
As a vehicle enthusiast, you might recognize that the Hella brand is synonymous with automotive auxiliary lighting. In reality, the entity is an automotive parts giant that produces everything from brakes and exhaust systems to wiper blades and vehicle sensors. The automotive component manufacturing powerhouse does over 4 billion in sales, operates more than 125 locations, and employs 36,000 people. At least 7,000 of those work on research and development projects.
With that in mind, we can expect high-tech sophisticated lighting technology that looks as good as it performs.
