Bartec Auto ID Limited (Bartec) managing director, Colin Webb spearheaded the TPMS experts’ presence at Automechanika Birmingham 2017 by delivering a presentation on how to maximise TPMS revenue. Entitled ‘Six Steps to Success’, Webb addressed a full audience in the Technical Talks theatre by identifying TPMS profit opportunities available to tyre shops, what tools and equipment are required to carry out TPMS repairs, as well as the training and support offered by Bartec, the global market leader in tyre pressure and monitoring systems.
Bartec Auto ID Limited (Bartec) has been named as one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.

Global TPMS Bartec Auto ID (Bartec) has appointed two new members to the company’s board, Matt Woods and Philip Wilson. Woods, who joined Bartec in 2013 as general manager, is the new operations director, while Wilson has been promoted to finance director, having joined the company in 2015.
Bartec Auto ID is currently an example of a company and brand more famous outside its domestic market than within it, though a recent behind-the-scenes event at the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and automotive diagnostic equipment manufacturer’s headquarters near Barnsley, South Yorkshire showed how managing director Colin Webb and his team plan to raise the profile of this British manufacturing success story. In the TPMS sector, growing globally with the support of legislation, Bartec claims a market share of more than 80 per cent of car plant installations in Europe and North America, achieved since its first installation for Renault in 1998, and a similar proportion of aftermarket TPMS tools coverage, with 95,000 TPMS devices in North America – including 96 of the 100 largest tyre retail chains – and 28,000 in Europe. The company supplies OEM tools to marques such as Mercedes, Ford and Volkswagen, while manufacturing tools for aftermarket brands like Snap On (TPMS2), Mac Tools (TPR), Schrader (Exp’Air and Activ’air), and Bosch (TPA200).
