Matt, Operations Director, joined Bartec in 2013 to take up the role of General Manager, tasked with project managing the design and build of the company’s refurbished head office in Barnsley, following an impressive career-to-date. He has since implemented restructuring of the company’s production, purchasing and quality systems and overseen the acceleration of the company design and development projects.

Far from the ivory tower accountant he brings a wealth of commercial and operational experience, together with a real eye for detail to the team.

On being appointed to the Board, Phil said, ‘I’m delighted to be joining a really responsive and progressive board with real ambition to grow the Company both organically through product and market development, and through strategic acquisition, together with the resource and know how to do it sustainably.

Bartec Auto ID Expands Into New Larger Premises

Bartec Auto ID is pleased to announce that the company has relocated to new 20,000 sq ft premises at Redbrook Business Park, about 1km. from its former premises at Barnsley Business Innovation Centre. Following several months of rebuilding and renovation it is now time to box up everything and leave the BBIC after 22 years based there. The decision was brought about by the rapid expansion the company is experiencing in its worldwide sales of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems. With increasing legislation around the world further expansion is expected.

In other words, Bartec Auto ID is preparing for the future and new legislated TPMS demand from Europe, Korea, China and Russia in particular. Starting from November 1st 2014 all new passenger carrying vehicles registered in EU must have TPMS fitted. Bartec is installing test systems in car plants and wheel and tyre assembly systems around Europe ahead of the November deadline.

Everyone is working towards the two high points this year: the Reifen exhibition in Essen at the end of May and the commencement of the legislation.

UK Survey Shows TPMS Crucial to Fuel Efficiency

A recent survey by Fusion Research reported that 51 percent of fleets questioned had improved their fuel efficiency in 2013 over previous years. The study was part of the Texaco Truck Research Report, supported by Chevron Lubricants and Continental A.G., and was presented during a recent Conti media briefing.

As part of the research of more than 500 operators across the United Kingdom, respondents were asked specifically how they felt tires and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) affected their fuel efficiency. While 42 percent of respondents stated they regularly monitor their tire pressures, this is a relatively low number when factored against a previous question in which 98 percent of those surveyed indicated they were aware of the impact tire pressure can have on a fleet’s fuel consumption.

“It’s good news that the industry understands the importance of consistently monitoring tire pressure,” said Arthur Gregg, commercial sales and marketing director at Continental. “Regular checks ensure that should a problem with the tire occur, it is noticed and can be fixed promptly, avoiding any increase in fuel consumption, damage to the tire or costly delays.” Studies carried out by Continental have shown that more than 90 percent of all tire failures are preceded by slow leaks, causing gradual loss of tire pressure.

This report appeared in European Rubber Journal, a UK-based sister publication of Tire Business.

Tire pressure monitoring systems: Growth market with caveats

Tire pressure monitoring systems: Growth market with caveatsLaws mandating the installation of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) in new vehicles are leading to a swift increase in the installed base of this technology in the European Union and the United States. With the proliferation of universal sensors and aggressive efforts to raise consumer awareness, the TPMS aftermarket is set for robust revenue growth, predicts Frost & Sullivan.

In a recent study the market research and analysis company finds that the market earned revenues of over $111.7 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach $386.6 million by 2018.

In 2011, only about 2.3 per cent of vehicles in operation in Europe, or 7.1 million, were equipped with direct TPMS. This installed base is forecast to grow to 36.7 million by 2018.

In the EU, transportation laws require vehicles to have an active TPMS. As sensor batteries typically last for 6 to 10 years, this mandate will drive breakage replacements in the forecast period and end-of-battery-life replacements beyond 2018.

Tire pressure monitoring systems: Growth market with caveats“By 2014, nearly 38 per cent of vehicles in North America will feature TPMS - a 13 per cent increase from 2011 - thus, increasing the addressable market size,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Kumar Saha. In Europe, the TPMS installed base, though much lower, is expected to more than double by 2014 due to supportive legislation.

As more European countries, including Belgium, Poland and Turkey, adopt winter tire legislations, TPMS revenues and unit sales will increase in the short and medium term. On the other hand, TPMS direct sensors installation in the U.S. will spike due to battery replacements, malfunctions, and winter tire replacements. Additionally, if the U.S. government mandates functioning TPMS sensors at all times and tightens gas mileage policies, the technology will become a key component in vehicles.

High OE installation rates have also provided manufacturers with the economies of scale they need to reduce prices and offer attractive TPMS replacement packages to consumers.

However, low installer awareness and long battery life have curbed TPMS replacement volumes, particularly in North America. High prices and the proliferation of stock-keeping unit counts for sensors daunt independent distribution and retail channels, further restraining growth.

To stay competitive, suppliers need to put adequate pricing and product placement strategies in place. Offering universal sensors, already introduced in North America by key manufacturers, will reduce inventory burdens on independent retailers.

These figures and conclusions are contained in the study "Strategic Analysis of the North American and European Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Aftermarket". For more information visit www.automotive.frost.com.

New Schrader-Bartec Cooperation with Reprogrammable TPMS Sensors

Schrader Electronics, global market leader in TPMS sensors and Bartec Auto ID, world leader in TPMS Tools and Equipment, have entered into a new agreement to develop the EZ-sensor®, programmable TPMS sensor, for the European market. The EZ-sensor® can be programmed using both the Bartec TECH400SDE and the Schrader Exp'Air TPMS Tools to emulate over 90% of TPMS sensors supplied by the European aftermarket.

May 2012 - New Schrader-Bartec Cooperation with Reprogrammable TPMS SensorsThe advantages over other sensors are clear:

  • The risk of installing a wrong sensor is minimised
  • Reduced cost of holding OE sensors
  • No lost sales through non-availability of replacement part/sensor
  • Easy and fast repairs

Bartec also provides the TPMS PAD, a universal test and programming station for programmable TPMS sensors such as the Schrader EZ-sensor®. The TPMS PAD can be used to test the broken sensor and extract its unique ID code, which can then be copied into a blank EZ-sensor®. In this way mechanically broken sensors can be replaced or complete sets of replacement tyres (for instance winter tyres) can be quickly and easily created.
