LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 11, 2001

 light truck production and includes Opel and Fiat production in Europe and Isuzu and Subaru production in Japan for vehicles to be sold into the U.S. market. Schrader Electronics already supplies RTPMS to GM's Corvette corvette, small warship, classed between a frigate and a sloop-of-war. Corvettes usually were flush-decked and carried fewer than 28 guns. They were widely employed in escorting convoys and attacking merchant ships during the great naval wars of the late 18th and  and Cadillac brands in the U.S.

Schrader Electronics is based in Northern Ireland and is the market and technology leader in remote tire pressure monitoring systems. The RTPMS allows drivers to monitor their vehicle's tire pressures by using electronic sensors attached to the tire valves to transmit pressure data from each wheel to displays on the dashboard or rear view mirror. Such systems will be compulsory on all cars produced in the USA under the TREAD Act and are also being made available by car producers across the world.

David Newlands, Chairman of Tomkins PLC, commented: "We are delighted that General Motors has selected Schrader for its light truck platforms. RTPMS is likely to become a standard safety feature in all vehicles during the next few years, not just in the USA where it will be compulsory. We anticipate that Schrader's leading technology will enable it to retain its market leader position in this significant new growth market."
