Pressure Systems International on March 13 announced the availability of a financial lease option to add the Meritor Tire Inflation System by PSI to existing equipment without a major upfront capital expenditure. The company has negotiated with Wirth Business Credit to offer creditworthy fleets a 36-month lease-to-own program, which will cover the entire product cost and labor costs required to retrofit trailers with MTIS.
“Our program recognizes that fleets whose equipment is equipped with MTIS are likely to save an amount each month in reduced tire expenditures and added fuel savings that is equal to or greater than the monthly lease payment – so it’s a good deal for everyone,” says Jeff Kuglen of Wirth Business Credit.
Frank Sonzala, executive vice president of San Antonio-based Pressure Systems International, says his company has been eager to find a program whereby fleet operators can realize the savings and benefits of adding MTIS to their existing equipment without the sometimes difficult initial outlay of cash for the product.
“We’re pleased that Wirth has agreed to offer this program to our customers,” Sonzala says. “With fuel prices soaring higher and higher, properly inflated tires are a financial must. Anyone can visit our website (www.psi-atis.com) to see how fleet operations equipped with MTIS are saving money, and they can also calculate their own likely return on investment for adding the system to their trailers.”
Ron Lacombe, national fleet manager for ArvinMeritor, agreed. “The Wirth finance option provides our customers the opportunity to amortize their purchase, allowing the fleet the ability to offset the monthly cost with the savings an MTIS system delivers — a good business decision made better,” Lacombe says.
Fleet operators interested in learning more about this financing option should contact their PSI or ArvinMeritor sales representative or call the company at 210-222-1926.
