STEMCO Collaborates with Leading ABS Manufacturer to Add ZeroTouch™ Technology to TrailerTail® Product Line

(LONGVIEW, Texas – November 10, 2016)STEMCO, an EnPro Industries company (NYSE: NPO) and leading manufacturer of heavy-duty components and solutions for commercial vehicles, announces ZeroTouch™ deployment technology for its TrailerTail® product line.

ZeroTouch™ technology connects to the trailer’s built-in ABS ECU (anti-lock brake system electronic control unit) to automatically deploy the TrailerTail® rear fairing when the vehicle reaches 35 mph. As an alternative to STEMCO’s existing radar-based AutoDeploy™ technology, ZeroTouch™ uses the trailer’s existing ABS ECU to reduce installation costs and simplify fleet maintenance.

An early adopter of TrailerTail® ZeroTouch™ technology, Georgia-based Boaty’s Transport, reported positive results after implementing the system into its fleet in January 2016. “We remotely monitored several units with telematics,” explained Boaty’s Owner Mike Boatwright. “ZeroTouch performed very reliably in opening our TrailerTail units without driver involvement. I now see ZeroTouch as the next step for our fleet – we’ll increase our fuel savings and our maintenance team is already very familiar with the service and reliability of these ABS systems.”

“TrailerTail with ZeroTouch is one more tool to help fleets ensure the TrailerTail is open when it should be,” said Bob Montgomery, vice president of STEMCO Innovative Tire and Mileage Solutions. “By collaborating with a very reliable ABS provider, this offering will help fleets throughout North America improve their efficiency and profitability through the reliable, effective automatic deployment of their TrailerTail units.”

ZeroTouch™ is available only for OEM trailers purchased with specific ABS ECU systems for new trailer builds starting next month. Fleets with existing trailers can still obtain automatic deployment of their TrailerTail® units with STEMCO’s radar-based AutoDeploy™ system.
