Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.) has completed an expansion to their San Antonio quality control laboratory and product testing facility.  The newest expansion adds approximately 240 square feet of floor space converted to accommodate new equipment that increases in-house capabilities to conduct root cause analysis, conduct testing to meet customer quality requirements and as part of any manufacturing improvement initiatives, and to qualify test equipment and components.

The expanded lab located within the San Antonio manufacturing facility has been upgraded with state-of-the-art equipment and measuring devices. The P.S.I. laboratory is unique to their single product, automatic tire inflation for commercial vehicles, which the company developed and patented twenty years ago. Since that time, the testing capabilities have developed along with the growth of the product demand both in the U.S. and worldwide.

P.S.I.’s San Antonio site recently received their ISO 9001, ISO 14001 recertification.  Charlie LaFuente, quality control manager and engineer, commented on the company’s new capabilities: “Our quality record is really second to none for products manufactured here in San Antonio.  But, we’re never satisfied to rest on past experience.  Much of this improvement and expansion was to upgrade in-house capabilities to have them closer to the manufacturing floor.”

The company plans future expansions to these facilities as demand warrants.

During 2013 P.S.I will celebrate twenty years since the company’s founder acquired the first patent for automatic tire inflation as a new technology for commercial vehicles.  Throughout 2013, P.S.I. will honor a number of fleets that have played a major role in the success of the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTI) by P.S.I. In North America MTIS has the greatest share of fleets that use automatic tire inflation systems with approximately 36% of all new trailers being equipped with the system.
