Pressure Systems International (PSI) recently recognized six trailer manufacturers who helped grow the number of trailers outfitted with the company’s Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) in 2019.
PSI designated two types of awards this year: The Momentum award, given to those trailer manufacturers who achieved the largest year-over-year gain in MTIS new trailer installations, and the Excellence award, recognizing companies with the highest penetration of MTIS use for trailers they manufacture.
The manufacturers recognized for achievements in 2019 are:
- Great Dane—Momentum award
- Kentucky Trailer—Excellence award
- Landoll—Momentum award
- Stoughton Trailers—Excellence award
- Strick Trailers—Momentum award
- Wabash National—Excellence award
Adapting to the current challenges, awards were presented using video meetings with as many as 10 various participants. During the online meetings, PSI representatives recognized the commitment and contributions each trailer OE has made in promoting technology that enhances customer satisfaction, and further growing MTIS’ premier position in the industry as the most popular automatic tire inflation system.
“Innovative and focused companies don’t let these unprecedented times be an excuse not to move forward and get things done. The 2019 award recipients are market leaders for good reason,” said Jim Sharkey, PSI’s vice president of global sales and marketing. “In years past, PSI has presented these awards during the annual Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) meeting. Even though TTMA has been canceled for 2020, it was still important for us to recognize those trailer manufacturers who play such a large part in our success.”
