Schrader International Inc. recently produced its 200 millionth direct tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor.

The sensor came off Schrader’s Antrim, Northern Ireland facility production line. The company says this marks an important date in Schrader history and is a direct result of the company’s focus on providing innovative, high-quality sensing and valve technologies.

“We directly thank our global customers for their partnership with us, and see this milestone as a launching point as TPMS continues to be adopted in global markets for its safety, fuel-efficiency and environmental benefits to drivers worldwide,” said Hugh Charvat, CEO and president and CEO of Schrader.

Approximately 306 million sensors are installed in North America alone, with well over half being produced by Schrader, the company notes. Now Schrader presses onward toward the production of its 300 millionth sensor with new TPMS legislative markets including Europe, South Korea, and other Asian-Pacific countries.
