Aperia Technologies Secures Funding to Accelerate Growth

Sponsored by Businesswire

Technologies Inc.
, the leading supplier of tire management
technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial
vehicles, today announced a $36 million Series C1 investment led by new
investors Blackhorn Ventures and Tenfore Holdings, with significant
participation from existing investors.

“Aperia is better positioned now more than ever before to continue its
mission to make transportation safer and more efficient,” said Josh
Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies. “This capital will help Aperia scale
its recently introduced Halo Connect tire analytics platform, expand
into new global markets, and enable the continued progression toward a
connected and autonomous future.”

Aperia has won the trust of some of the most prominent commercial
vehicle fleets across the United States with its flagship Halo® Tire
Inflator technology. The recent introduction of Halo Connect utilizes
proprietary algorithms trained over more than half a decade and a
billion miles to sense and detect tire health issues before they become
severe. When used together fleets can virtually eliminate unplanned
tire-related downtime and CO2 emissions caused by tire under-inflation.

“With its Halo Tire Inflator technology, Aperia has created a unique
solution that can help truck makers and fleet managers operate safer and
more efficient vehicles,” said Dan Levine, Managing Partner at Tenfore
Holdings. “Aperia’s sensors and software provide various types of data
that have heretofore been largely inaccessible. Opening up insights from
this data can allow trucking companies, tire manufacturers, and other
auto parts makers to accelerate the shift to connected vehicles and
predictive maintenance.”

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), transportation
is the nation’s largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions, and within
this sector heavy-trucks are the second largest and fastest growing
segment in terms of emissions and energy use. Aperia has been initially
focused on delivering environmental innovation to the commercial
trucking space, with opportunity to adapt its technology across broader
vehicle segments.

“Aperia’s focus on delivering solutions for the transportation sector,
that deliver both a strong return on investment for their customers and
positive externalities, is strongly aligned with our investment
strategy,” said Trevor Zimmerman, Managing Partner of Blackhorn
Ventures. “Blackhorn invests in visionary companies leveraging
breakthroughs in engineering and innovative business models to drive new
standards of efficiency in industrial sectors – that’s exactly what
Aperia is doing.”
