CENTRAMATIC, established in 1985, began by supplying the heavy-duty trucking industry in the United States and Canada with a unique “On-Board” balancing system for steer, drive and trailer axles. In the late 1980’s, CENTRAMATIC acquired Perma-Balance, a company that manufactured balancers for light-duty vehicles and automobiles. Their products were well known having been distributed by companies such as Montgomery Wards and Sears. This acquisition gave CENTRAMATIC a complete line of products from cars to pick-ups and as large as 18 wheelers. Over the years, business has grown to over 2500 dealers nationwide and some very prominent distributors as well. Paccar Parts (Kenworth and Peterbilt), Freightliner, Speedco’s, TruckPro’s, Petro’s, Travel Centers of America, Goodyear Commercial Tire Centers, TDS, GCR Tire Centers and Love’s Truck Tire Care are just some of the names you know and trust.
