Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Schrader International for Inventive Tire Pressure Sensors

Based on its recent analysis of the automotive vehicle pressure sensors market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Schrader International with the 2009 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Industry Innovation & Advancement of the Year. The company’s product line of tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS) and value-added services offers customers the advantages of quality, efficiency, convenience and cost-efficiency.

The TREAD Act of 2000 marked the beginning of a new category of automotive safety products. The law mandated the installation of tire pressure monitoring systems on all new vehicles sold after Sept. 1, 2007, causing a scramble among tire pressure sensor suppliers for original equipment (OE) production contracts with automakers.

“At the time the law was enacted, Schrader had a decade of experience in the development of tire pressure monitoring systems, and had produced sensors for road vehicles for eight years,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Matt Scruggs. “This favorable initial condition, created by the company’s vision and product development, contributed to the adoption of Schrader tire pressure monitoring sensors by major OE manufacturers (OEMs).”

Schrader has set up educational clinics, conducted by Tire Industry Association (TIA)-certified employees, to instruct technicians on the proper installation, servicing and replacement of Schrader-brand sensors. This allows OEM assembly facilities, original equipment spares (OES)-channel repair facilities, and independent repair facilities to make optimum use of the advantages in tooling and labor reduction that the company’s snap-in sensors provide.
