GRANDVIEW, Mo., March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peterson Manufacturing, a global leader in transportation-based safety lighting technology and related equipment, was recently chosen to supply the indicator lights for the automatic tire inflation systems of San Antonio-based Pressure Systems International. Maxi-Seal, Peterson's electrical harness division, will supply the custom wiring harness for the lights.

In making the announcement, P.S.I. Vice President/CFO, Steve Otteman said: "Peterson Manufacturing has been named the standard supplier of the indicator light and electrical harness for P.S.I. As the world's leader in automatic tire inflation systems, P.S.I. must use suppliers that are also world leaders. Peterson and Maxi Seal provide the high-quality products we demand for our lighting and harness system needs. Their outstanding quality, delivery, and customer service make them a key link in the P.S.I. supply chain."

As a key component of a P.S.I. system, the indicator light mounts on the front of a trailer and alerts the driver to stop immediately should tire problems develop. Such alerts prevent small problems from becoming big problems, leading to costly repairs and downtime.

Pat Clift, Peterson's Director-OEM Sales, worked closely with P.S.I. in securing the new partnership. "Peterson is excited to showcase our vertically integrated capabilities in supplying a global market leader like P.S.I.," said Clift. "Their products enhance the safety, longevity and profitability of customer fleets worldwide, and we're proud that our proven reliability and 'Proudly Made in USA' quality have earned their confidence."
