NORTH HILLS, Calif., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LoJack Corporation (NASDAQ:
LOJN) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Galpin Ford,
the world's largest Ford dealership for 22 consecutive years, to install the
LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System on Galpin's fleet of vehicles. This is
the largest agreement of its kind that LoJack Corporation has established with
a single dealer and represents a strategic direction the company is taking
with top-flight dealerships like Galpin Ford.
"LoJack Corporation is very pleased to enter into this arrangement with Galpin
Ford as it is a true win for both organizations," said Randy L. Ortiz,
President and CEO of LoJack. "Since vehicle theft increasingly happens at
dealer lots, Galpin Ford will now have the best protection available for its
entire fleet and can readily pass that protection along to its customers who
purchase the LoJack System. LoJack Corporation will benefit from being the
vehicle theft protection solution endorsed by one of the largest and most
successful dealerships in the country."
"I have known Bert Boeckmann and the Galpin team for many years and they
represent the gold standard of automotive retailing. I couldn't be more proud
to partner with a winning group like Galpin Ford," continued Ortiz.
"Offering a quality product like the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System
fits perfectly into our philosophy of delivering exceptional products and
exceptional value to our customers," said Bert Boeckmann, owner of Galpin
Motors, Inc. "There isn't another theft protection system that can match
LoJack's reliability, brand appeal and success rate. Making the LoJack System
available to all of our customers is particularly important in the greater Los
Angeles market, which currently and historically has ranked as one of the
worst areas in the country for car theft. That's why we are excited to offer
this highly effective system to our customers while also protecting the
vehicles on our own lot."
LoJack Corporation will install its flagship Stolen Vehicle Recovery System on
Galpin Ford's fleet of vehicles, as well as provide value-added services in
dedicated training, installation and marketing.
