Gustavo Preston Company - Case Study

Gustavo Preston Case Study

Gustavo Preston Company, founded in 1881, has been providing engineered, fluid-handling equipment solutions to Boston and the greater New England area for over 135 years.



The Gustavo Preston Company needed to reduce costs related to claims and collisions across its fleet.



  • The Gustavo Preston Company selected the Lytx® Driver Safety Program due to its reputation for improving safety, as well as the efficient integration of video and fleet-tracking services.
  • The Gustavo Preston Company incorporated video into its fleet-tracking solution to improve employee accountability and implement a driving-behavior training method with employees.


“We are growing and with more drivers on the road, we felt we needed to take the next step and video record any events that occurred.”

  • After implementing the Driver Safety Program, the biggest benefit seen by the Gustavo Preston Company was an increase in employee morale and reduction in turnover. Relatedly, productivity increased from 30% to 39%.
  • Using the video telematics technology, the company was able to identify problematic behaviors, as well as uncover a correlation between technician driving performance and on-the-job performance.
