Trailer company Grote Industries has appointed Andrew Grose to the position of vice president - Grote Networks. 

He most recently served as COO and general manager of Yummly, a software company and subsidiary of Whirlpool Corp. While at Whirlpool, he led initiatives in product development, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, sales strategy, and operations.

Before that, Grose spent five years at Nissan Automotive in various engineering roles for passenger vehicles. His academic credentials include a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from Michigan Technological University and a master’s degree in business administration from Wayne State University.

According to Grote, he will lead Grote Networks, comprised of, in part, the 4SEE smart trailer solution and Guardian businesses. Launched in 2016, Guardian started as a system to meet customer needs for light-out detection.

As it evolved, Grote recognized the need to consolidate data from all the systems on the trailer, regardless of the sensor packages installed. 4SEE was announced in 2022 as this solution, with a proprietary nose box, which allows digital and video data to communicate through the standard J560 connection to the cab and a unique digital harness system.

“Andrew is a seasoned executive with a diverse background in engineering, business strategy, and operations,” said Dominic Grote, CEO of Grote Industries, “This positions him well to use his blend of technical expertise and business acumen to drive our organizational growth and innovation. We are continuing to invest in the future of our Grote Networks business, and Andrew is the right leader to guide the business to fulfilling our vision of a safer, smarter world.”
