Aperia Technologies Inc., a supplier of tire management technologies, announced it designated Fontaine Modification as a preferred installer of its Halo Tire Inflator and Halo Connect technology.

Halo is an automatic tire inflation system for trucks and trailers. Since its inception in 2015, Halo has covered more than 20 billion cumulative miles, according to Burlingame, Calif.-based Aperia. Introduced in 2019, Halo Connect is a proprietary connectivity platform intended to eliminate unplanned tire-related downtime by pairing predictive alerts with active inflation.

“Fontaine Modification has installed the Halo Tire Inflator on thousands of vehicles over the past two years,” Aperia Technologies CEO Josh Carter said in a release. “This expanded agreement allows fleets to have our full product suite installed via Fontaine’s impressive network.”

Fontaine Modification will offer Halo and Halo Connect installation at its 10 modification centers nationwide. Modification centers are located near truck OEM manufacturing facilities, which enables Fontaine to install the Halo systems before the trucks are shipped to the dealer.

Fontaine Modification is a Marmon Holdings/Berkshire Hathaway company. — Transport Topics
