Head Office Teleflow

TELEFLOW was created in November 1993 by Stéphane Fazekas, the inventor of all the patents used by the company.
The company designs, manufactures and markets remote inflation systems for all types of vehicles equipped with
4 wheels, 6 wheels, 8 wheels or more.
More than 150,000 patented TELEFLOW valves are in service on all continents and more than 3,000 new vehicles are equipped each year.

TELEFLOW inflation systems allow the control and adjustment of tire pressures while driving. They are also known as VPG (Variable Pressure Control), TPCS (Tire Pressure Control System) or CTIS (Central Tire Inflation System) systems. Their primary application is to improve vehicle road holding by optimizing the tire contact area according to the terrain, speed and load carried.

TELEFLOW is committed to the values of transparency, rigour and service. The company operates in many countries around the world and we put our experience to work for various players in the automotive, motorsport, agriculture, civil engineering, defence and security sectors.

Birth of TELEFLOW

Stéphane Fazekas noticed the constraints faced by farmers when moving from the road to the field and the need to vary tyre pressures. He then developed his first electromechanical on-board inflation concept and founded TELEFLOW.

The beginnings of inflation system

As a forerunner of on-board inflation systems, TELEFLOW must - above all - initiate the regular use of this little known technology.

The first users to identify the interest of an on-board remote inflation system are private individuals, farmers, rally raid pilots and ENEDIS intervention centres. TELEFLOW is pleased to support these loyal customers for many years.

Technology that convinces armies

Deploying vehicles that are very diverse in their function as well as in their specifications, the Defence sector quickly identified remote inflation as a decisive equipment to preserve and increase their operational mobility and included it in the design of new wheeled vehicles.

The continuous innovation and high reliability of TELEFLOW systems are quickly making them a reference among the very closed circle of CTIS manufacturers.
The first manufacturer to offer a TELEFLOW automatic system in series production was the Italian IVECO for its LMV vehicle, which sold over 4,000 units. In Germany, Mercedes validates the GRA for all its vehicles. In France, Renault Trucks Défense, Acmat and Panhard adopted the system.

Michelin Group acquires TELEFLOW

The family-owned SME becomes a 100% subsidiary of the French tyre manufacturer. The Michelin Group acquires a company that equips more than 3,000 vehicles per year, generating 85% of its sales abroad and 95% of its supplier expenditure in France.

Today and tomorrow

This period will see a strong acceleration in technical and commercial developments generated by the Group's synergies between CTIS and tires.
The main challenge of this decade is to propose augmented mobility solutions and to allow private and professional users to benefit from CTIS innovations.
