Pressure Systems acquires Truck Systems Tech.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Pressure Systems International has acquired Truck System Technologies, a provider of tire-pressure monitoring and mobile-asset management systems technology, Trucking Info reported.

It is the 26th announced consolidation in the RV industry so far this year.

PSI indicated the acquisition represents “a valuable addition” to its PSI portfolio of products, which fleet operators use to manage tire costs and manufacturers can tap to meet future standards set under the greenhouse gas Phase 2 rules for trucks and trailers.

“The ability for our customers to customize their tire management solutions from a single-systems provider is increasingly important with the pending Greenhouse Gas Phase 2 trailer regulations becoming effective January 2018,” said Tim Musgrave, president and CEO of PSI. “TST already enjoys a solid reputation in the RV market, which they will build on as they expand into the commercial vehicle segment.”

This marks the 26th announced consolidation within the RV industry since Jan. 1, according to reports published by RV Daily Report.
