Fontaine Modification now will provide customers across North America with Aperia’s complete automatic tire inflation system, which is designed to reduce tire-related downtime and improve fuel efficiency for commercial vehicle tractors and trailers.
“Fontaine Modification has installed the Halo Tire Inflator on thousands of vehicles over the past two years,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia. “This expanded agreement allows fleets to have our full product suite installed via Fontaine’s impressive network.”
Used extensively in heavy-duty trucks since 2015, the Halo is a “revolutionary system” that installs in minutes, the company said. Since its inception, Halo has covered more than 20 billion cumulative miles. Introduced in 2019, Halo Connect is a proprietary connectivity platform that enables fleets to virtually eliminate unplanned tire-related downtime by pairing predictive alerts with active inflation.
“As a company dedicated to fleet efficiency and environmentally sustainable fleet management, we are pleased to support installation of Halo and Halo Connect as the leading tire inflation solutions for tractors and trailers in North America,” said Jamil Young, president of Fontaine Modification medium and heavy truck operations division.
Fontaine Modification will offer Halo and Halo Connect installation at all 10 of its modification centers across the country. Modification centers are located by truck OEM manufacturing facilities, which enables Fontaine to install the Halo systems before the trucks are shipped to the dealer.
