In-CarPC will soon be part of Bowmonk Ltd

April 2014

We are pleased to announce that In-CarPC is in the process of being acquired by Bowmonk Ltd, a world-leading manufacturer of decelerometers and vehicle management/diagnostic equipment, with the acquisition expected to complete by the end of April 2014.

David Hitchings, who founded In-CarPC Ltd in 2006, will take up a permanent position with Bowmonk as General Manager of In-CarPC, and will continue to be the main point of contact for all customers.

David said: "In order to provide customers with additional value added solutions, I felt In-CarPC would benefit from an alliance with a company that has the business resources, global scale and platform reach to accelerate growth across hardware, services and through software partnerships.  Bowmonk gives us this edge and our visions are well aligned as we both value the importance of listening and working with our customers and providing a "truly customised" solution.  I would like to thank all our customers for their support over the years, and I look forward to continuing to work with you as part of Bowmonk."

Ernie Hill, Director of Bowmonk, said "I look forward to welcoming In-CarPC into the Bowmonk family and working closely with David. In-CarPC's products complement and work in tandem with existing products such as our event data recorders and on-board weigh scales that will provide our customers with a powerful vehicle and driver management tool."

Key facts about the acquisition:

  • In-CarPC's business will be incorporated into Bowmonk Ltd.  We will trade as In-CarPC, a division of Bowmonk.
  • Product warranties will not be affected in any way, and will continue to be honoured by Bowmonk.
  • Our range of current in-vehicle computers will continue to remain available until their end-of-life dates (the furthest away of which is the C3 series in 2020), with new models continuing to be added to the range when appropriate.
  • Our contact details will remain the same, with In-CarPC continuing to operate from our current office near Bristol.

In summary, the acquisition should have only positive impacts on In-CarPC and our customers.

Thank you for your support, and please contact us if you have any questions.
