One millionth Meritor Tire Inflation System manufactured

One millionth Meritor Tire Inflation System manufactured

Meritor Inc. and Pressure Systems International (PSI) celebrated a milestone on Nov. 4 when the one millionth Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by PSI rolled off the assembly line in San Antonio. As part of the celebration, 31 different trailers from Meritor’s fleet customers will be equipped with a part from the one millionth MTIS by PSI. The finished milestone unit was unpackaged and disassembled into different components, which were incorporated into 31 units coming off the line and will be installed by seven OEMs.

“In 1993, it would have been impossible to measure the impact an automatic tire inflation system would have on the trucking industry. The fact that now over one million systems have been produced is a true testament to the safety and environmental impact automatic tire inflation systems are having on transportation,” said American Trucking Association President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Graves, keynote speaker at the celebration.

“Manufacturing 1 million units is a milestone that far exceeds our competitors and speaks to our market leadership for a product with a growing customer base,” said Tim Musgrave, PSI’s president and chief executive officer.
