Bartec Auto ID Company History

Bartec Auto ID - The TPMS ExpertsBartec Auto ID Ltd was formed in 1992 and is a family owned group of companies specialising in radio frequency systems and is the world leader in tyre pressure monitoring tools (TPMS tools and systems) for both the aftermarket, car plants and wheel and tyre assembly plants.

Dedicated teams of experts in the UK, Germany and North America design, develop and manufacture our products and support our customers. The company offers professional training, TPMS information and support in several European languages. All of our high quality tools are manufactured and tested in the UK and both of our manufacturing sites have ISO9001 approval.

In 1998 Bartec installed the first ever TPMS car plant system at Renault, Sandouville, France and today have 105 plant installations. These TPMS antenna systems diagnose faults at wheel and tyre assembly and program vehicle ECUs on the final production line within major car manufacturing plants. With a market share of over 80% of plants in Europe and North America, Bartec is able to access the most up-to-date technical information and specifications of vehicles and sensors. This means that our aftermarket tools are also up-to-date and our customers are the first to be able to repair new models in this fast moving market.

ISO 9001 & ISO/IEC 27001

In North America, where TPMS was legislated in 2005 Bartec have vast experience having supplied over 100,000 tools to aftermarket customers including tyre shops, repair shops, OE customers and others. These advanced tools diagnose TPMS faults, enable repairs and turn off the warning light. The latest tools can download their vehicle diagnostic and repair data to a PC package called TPMS Desktop which provides an audit trail of work done along with extensive TPMS and vehicle repair information in several languages. The tools are also able to receive software and coverage updates over WiFi again leading to the repair of the latest vehicles.

Our OE customers include Ford, Chrysler, GM, Mitsubishi, Renault, Volvo, Nissan, Subaru, Isuzu, Land Rover, Jaguar, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota, Kia, BMW, Mercedes and wheel manufacturers and assemblers across the world.

Bartec Auto ID is also a leading edge designer and supplier of commercial vehicle tyre management systems, RFID readers, vehicle satellite tracking systems and other Tyre and vehicle technology products.

In March 2003 Bartec Auto ID Ltd acquired the business of Oyster Terminals Ltd in Coventry. Oyster had been in business for 23 years and brings with it a history of high quality portable terminal manufacture.

Queens's Award

In April 2005 the company was privileged to receive the Queen's Award for Enterprise. This award is a recognition of the tremendous team effort by all at Bartec Auto ID innovating, listening to customers and bringing great products and technical support to our customers worldwide. The Queen's Awards for Enterprise are the UK's most prestigious awards for business performance. This was also the year that Bartec USA LLC opened its doors to support our North American customers.

In 2006 Bartec Auto ID merged with Bartec Systems Ltd, thereby acquiring the systems expertise of this company and it's fast growing Waste Management Systems business. In the same year the Tyre management business of Smartronics Limited was purchased from NMR PLC.

In 2014 the TECH400 won all of the major Trade awards for the best TPMS tool for ease-of-use and Return on Investment as voted by trade customers. In 2015 this feat was repeated by the TECH500.
