Company History

Our Origin Story

InterMotive, Inc., was founded in 1996 by Greg and Linda Schafer. Greg's experience as a former design engineer at General Motors and Ford, and Linda's skills as a Communications major helped set things in motion.

Like all awesome companies, their first office was the kitchen table, then the garage. Booming sales soon afforded an official location in Fairfield, California.

Initially performing accident inspections and expert witness cases for OEMs, the company quickly began exploring product design. Some of the first products included the Overdrive Inverter for work trucks, hood louvres for law enforcement vehicles and Taxi-Lock. One of InterMotive's first big customers was PG&E.

Company headquarters was moved in 2005, to Colfax, California. Needing additional space to grow, headquarters was moved again in 2010 to Auburn, California. In 2012, a Midwest office was opened in Elkhart, Indiana.

In 2014, Linda and Greg founded LGS Group, Inc., to become the master distributor for InterMotive, with headquarters in Incline Village, Nevada.

With over 20 years of significant growth in products, personnel, offices and revenue, InterMotive has become a leading manufacturer and designer of the latest technology in optimizing vehicle safety, fuel economy and productivity.
