SAN ANTONO, Texas — Pressure Systems International (PSI) presented Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company with its 2011 Athena Award presented at the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association meeting April 20. The award is given by PSI each year to the company who does the most to promote the use of its ThermALERT technology. 

Officials say ThermALERT, when used with PSI’s Meritor Tire Inflation System, is designed to warn vehicle operators of excessive heat build-up in the wheel end before it results in wheel loss, wheel-end failures, and possibly dangerous and costly trailer fires.  

During the award presentation, PSI president and CEO Tim Musgrave thanked Utility for championing the ThermALERT technology. “ThermALERT was developed to address the safety concern of possible wheel off situations due to heat build-up in the wheel end and we’re very appreciative that Utility recognizes the benefits this technology offers their customers,” he said. “Having a trailer manufacturer with Utility’s reputation support this technology reinforces our belief in the advantages of this technology.”

Present at the award ceremony from Utility Trailer were Steve Bennett, vice-president; Hal Bennett, president; Jeff Bennett, vice-president engineering; Paul Bennett, chairman and CEO; and Todd Bennett, director of finance. Representing PSI was Musgrave; Frank Sonzala, executive vice-president; and Steve Robinson, director of OEM sales and dealer programs.
