JR Products and Advantage PressurePro, the original provider of direct Tire Performance Management Solutions (TPMS), are partnering to allow the distribution of PressurePro’s FX solution through JR’s distributor network. Through this agreement, JR Products will act as a value-added reseller and streamline access of the FX to a wide array of TPMS customers.
JR Products says the FX unlocks advanced monitoring options for all types of trailers, including boats, campers/pop ups, fifth wheels/toy haulers and livestock, flatbed/enclosed. Through the partnership, JR Products says it joins PressurePro in a mission to add safety and savings for customers by implementing the FX’s 24/7 monitoring and comprehensive alert schedule, which alerts drivers to tire problems in real time – driving or parked – direct to their smart device.
Offering the FX in fully retailed packages, JR now offers three kit variations including the FX 2 Wheel Kit, FX 4 Wheel Kit and Sensor Kit. Additionally, JR Products now offers POP retail packages of the new PressurePro FX TPMS Wheel Kits. These easy to assemble stand-alone displays, house the FX product line (all three kit variations) and come unassembled (flat) in a shipper box (40-inch by 20.75-inch by 1.5-inch) and include a fully printed base, holding tray & informational header.
“We can now offer customers an excellent product that supports our JR Products values and standards while further enhancing the towing demographic who understand how critical tires are in maintaining safety and savings,” says JR Products President Brian Roba. “This partnership represents the perfect marriage of technology and customer support. Together, JR Products and Pressure Pro will lead the industry in delivering Tire Performance Management Solutions for the RV and Marine lifestyles.”
