From the beginning, the Schrader brand has been driven by innovation. One of our first inventions was the world-renowned Schrader® pneumatic tire valve–the very same valve that is used today on every motor vehicle in the world. Since our breakthrough inventions beginning in 1844, we’ve accelerated our strong culture and track record of innovative technologies solving real-world challenges for our customers. More recently, we pioneered tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) for global OEMs and a revolutionary, patented programmable sensor for the Aftermarket. TPMS is a safety feature now standard on all cars in North America and Europe and is growing globally in Asian-Pacific countries. In fact, more than half of all global vehicle platforms utilize Schrader direct TPMS technology. By accurately monitoring tire pressure, TPMS helps drivers avoid serious accidents, reduce environmental impact, and save money at the pump.
