Sanford, Fla.-based SCT Holdings, a software company focused on improving fuel efficiency and increasing vehicle performance, recently acquired Bully Dog Technologies, a developer of automotive calibration solutions for the performance and truck aftermarket, according to SCT.
“There are many synergies between both companies, and our combined performance and fleet customers will see the direct benefits: more products for more vehicles with more features sold in more places in the months to come,” said Rick Trudo, CEO of SCT. “With Bully Dog’s vast vehicle coverage, we can offer our customers calibration solutions for even more vehicle applications.”
SCT and Bully Dog plan a comprehensive integration of employees, customers and suppliers over the coming months, according to SCT.
“Combining the strengths of these two leading companies will expand our vehicle coverage and accelerate our international growth in both the performance and fleet segments,” said Lisa Schule, managing director of GEF, a firm that invested in SCT last year. “Bully Dog and SCT’s complementary software will be a crucial part of new technology advances in vehicles as they become more intelligent, fuel-efficient and powerful.”
SCT’s software currently is available for Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Nissan, Toyota, Paccar, Mercedes, Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel and Polaris vehicles.
