BMPRO has secured contracts with two of the largest US manufacturers of RVs, Thor Motor Coach and Jayco USA.
BMPRO has supplied local companies such as Jayco and New Age for more than 10 years with battery management systems and other 12V-related products, but “this is an Australian first to see substantial volumes now being exported to the world’s largest RV market”.
RVMaster – the product BMPRO will supply the US companies – is a RV control and monitoring system that works via a console or app. It monitors water tanks, tyre pressure, doors, windows, temperatures and more, and controls functions such as lighting, slide-outs, awnings and generators.
“It has been an exciting journey for BMPRO in adapting our technologies and capabilities learned from the Australian RV market to a product relevant and suitable for US requirements,” BMPRO CEO Louise Bayliss said. “Our software development team has more than doubled to tackle the project, embracing rapid 3D printing prototyping, advanced Bluetooth technology, new US-centric industry communication protocols and of course the ability to partner with cloud-based applications.”
BMPRO has established a sales and support team in the heart of the US RV: Elkhart, Indiana, and has already shipped its first deliveries for trial installations.
