The tech checks tyre pressure, tread depth, and vehicle weight for buses, trucks and other vehicles - without the driver having to leave the cab.

Now Ventech is part of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber family.

The German business will be integrated into the Goodyear Proactive Solutions operation and the tyre giants say they made the acquisition to strengthening their one-stop value proposition for fleets, including premium tyres, advanced technology, and mobile fleet solutions.

They say the tyre inspection technology will better them provide a complete service package to fleets to allow them to optimize their total cost of ownership and efficiency.
