Pressure Systems International (PSI) has recently recognized six trailer manufacturers for the role each played in 2019 to increase the number of trailers outfitted with the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS), which is manufactured by the company.
PSI designated two types of awards to be presented this year: The Momentum Award given to those trailer manufacturers who have achieved the largest year-over-year gain in MTIS new trailer installations and the Excellence Award recognizing the companies that have the highest penetration of MTIS use for the trailers they manufacture.
PSI says those 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 ten 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, the company says.
“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,” says Jim Sharkey, vice president 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.”
