It’s no secret that vehicle technology is changing at a rapid pace. Tire dealers see it in their bays every day when performing both tire and service work. One company that is on the front lines of adapting to new vehicle technology – and understanding the needs of the technician – is JohnDow Industries.

Not only is JohnDow a player in the TPMS space, but the company is also known for its fluid and exhaust extraction technologies that have been helping technicians for more than 35 years.

“New products and improving existing products…staying relevant and understanding what professional technicians need, that’s the lifeblood of our company,” says JohnDow President Robert Christy. “We spend a lot of time in the bays, understanding their needs and understanding how our products are performing and how they can be improved.”
