MILAN, Italy — Prometeon Tyre Group S.r.l. and GreenRoad Technologies Inc., a provider of fleet drivers' safety and performance solutions, have agreed to work together to help Prometeon enrich its PRO-Services fleet services portfolio.
Under the new agreement, Prometeon is adding "PRO Drive," a fleet-management solution based on GreenRoad know-how and expertise, according to the companies.
PRO Drive will help fleets improve their drivers' behavior, resulting in "significant" savings in fuel consumption and a reduction in incident rates, leading to a new level of efficiency in total cost of ownership, Greenroad said.
Prometeon said it will roll out PRO Drive in Europe early in 2020 and then deploy it in stages worldwide.
"This partnership with GreenRoad allows us to offer its leading fleet- performance management solution to our customers throughout the world," Alain Versace, Prometeon's head of global truck services, said.
"This is a further confirmation of Prometeon's commitment to support its customers with cutting-edge technology applied to their daily business."
Milan-based Prometeon is the producer of Pirelli-brand truck, farm, OTR and industrial tires. It was established in 2017 as part of Pirelli & C. S.p.A.'s revamp into a "pure consumer" tire company following China National Chemical Corp.'s acquisition of Pirelli in 2015.
It's represented in North America by Prometeon Tyre Group Commercial Solutions L.L.C. in Rome, Ga.
Greenroad CEO David Ripstein added: "This agreement is in line with GreenRoad's strategy of penetrating into new markets via strategic partners. There is a strong synergy between the technologies of our two companies, and we are proud to work together to bring value to Prometeon's customers."
Austin, Texas-based GreenRoad Technologies describes itself as a developer of driver behavior technology that provides effective fleet driver safety and compliance solutions.
