SmarTire to supply Pirelli with pressure monitoring systems

Oct. 16, 2002

SmarTire Systems and Pirelli have signed a supply agreement for tire pressure monitoring systems, which will be marketed and sold under the name "X-Pressure."

The systems will be sold via Pirelli's distribution system throughout the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Germany and Switzerland starting at the end of 2002.

"Today, a new phase begins in the evolution of Pirelli tires which will see the tire increasingly integrated into and able to dialogue with other vehicle management and control systems," says Francesco Gori, managing director for Pirelli SpA's Tyre Sector.
