DETROIT, (March 28)—Schrader-Bridgeport International Inc. with its sister electronics division has won seven new original equipment contracts for its Gen II tire pressure monitoring sensor. Schrader´s first version of the sensor has been standard equipment on the Chevrolet Corvette and Plymouth Prowler since 1996, working in tandem with the run-flat tires on those vehicles. But the Gen II will appear solo on all but one of the new contracts. Schrader will ship Gen II for three U.S. platforms, three European programs and one in Japan starting with the 2001 model year and extending three to four years, depending on the contract, said Carl E. Wacker, worldwide manager of sales and marketing for Schrader Electronics.
