BURLINGAME, Calif. – Aperia Technologies announced the launch of its Halo tire inflator to a network of U.S.-based dealers Dec. 17.
“The first truck and trailer dealerships included in our dealer network were chosen carefully based on their reputations for having strong fleet relationships and for upholding our standard for a premium customer experience” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia. “To compliment strong retrofit adoption in 2015, our customers wanted an easy option to roll Halo into new truck purchases. The dealers have been gearing up to offer Halo on both new trucks and as a retrofit to meet growing fleet demand in 2016.”
The bolt-on tire inflation device for tractors and trailers will be available in over 100 locations across the U.S., including Truck Country, Gateway Truck and Refrigeration and Warner Truck Centers.
Aperia describes the Halo as versatile, self-powered tire inflation system that uses a wheel’s rotation to maintain optimal tire pressure in dual and wide-based tires on drive and trailer axles used on trucks, tractors, trailers and buses.
“We are excited to partner with Aperia to offer the Halo because we are committed to investing in products where we know we can get a return for our customers,” said Zach Wagner, vice-president of operations at Gateway Truck and Refrigeration. “The system is easy to install in a matter of minutes. It requires only four bolts and two connections whether it’s going on a new or existing vehicle and offers an opportunity to a fleet to keep track of its second largest controllable cost, which is tires.”
Aperia is a California-based company founded in 2010 that provides automatic tire inflation systems for tractors and trailers.
