Since 2010, Aperia Technologies has been combating the problem of tire under-inflation as it afflicts the commercial trucking industry. Aperia was founded by two entrepreneurially-minded engineers with backgrounds in automotive product development, aerospace, automated-machinery and medical device industries who met at Stanford University while pursuing masters degrees in mechanical engineering design methodology and energy systems.
The company has been solely focused on bringing the Halo Tire Inflator technology from concept to reality, and raised its first outside investment in 2011, enabling the company to acquire top talent, expand its IP portfolio, further its customer & industry engagement, and navigate the challenges of lean product development and manufacturing. ‘Aperia’ comes from the Latin, aperio, which means to uncover, reveal, or make clear. Aperia’s mission is to uncover compelling opportunities, reveal creative technology solutions, and make clear the fact that we can ‘change the world, one revolution at a time.’
