The companies and investors behind Umovity
Umovity unites industry-leading brands in mobility and is backed by strong companies and investors.
The products and services under the Umovity brand are created by the company groups Econolite and PTV.
Econolite and PTV have two strong investors at their side: the international private equity investor Bridgepoint and Porsche Automobile Holdings SE, which are indirectly invested in their holding company, European Transport Solutions S.àr.l. (Luxembourg).
Bridgepoint and Porsche SE supported PTV and Econolite to join forces in 2022 and now back the further integration into two strong and distinct brands: Umovity (Econolite and PTV Group Mobility); and PTV Logistics (PTV Group Logistics and Conundra).
Econolite began in 1933, with a single unique product innovation, a stop sign with a flashing beacon that turned off during the daytime, extending bulb life and reducing power consumption. That product shared its name with the company, “ECONOLITE.” Since then, Econolite has never stopped innovating and is one of the largest, most established providers of traffic control products and technologies in the industry.
Today, the Econolite family includes our products group, Econolite Control Products, Inc., our services group, Econolite Systems, Inc., Econolite Canada, and CAVita, which offers world-class expertise in Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV). Together, the Econolite family employs over 1,000 people throughout North America. Econolite is headquartered in Anaheim, California, with eight additional offices throughout the United States.
PTV Group provides software solutions and consulting services to empower mobility for a cleaner and smarter future. Its best-in-class software for transportation modeling & simulation as well as intelligent traffic management enables decision-makers in politics, cities, organizations, and industries, to be more efficient, make roads safer, and protect the environment. Over 2.500 cities make smart decisions based on PTV software. Located in the heart of the Karlsruhe technology region, PTV’s head office has been the company’s center of development and innovation since its foundation in 1979 as a Karlsruhe University of Technology (KIT) spin-off. The latest developments in science, technology, and research are continuously incorporated into our product development. Today, approximately 900 employees worldwide work on powerful, future-oriented solutions to create intelligent and eco-friendly mobility for everyone.
