Who we are

SST Wireless Inc. designs and produces wireless sensor technologies that help increase safety, reduce operational downtime and reduce environmental footprint for several key industries. The company’s durable and robust products are the result of years of research, development and testing in extreme real world conditions.

The company’s flag ship product is the industrial grade wireless tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that improves the safety and life of the Off The Road (OTR) tires used on heavy haulers that carry 360 tons of material per load, operating in mines under some of the harshest possible conditions.  The system known as True Tire Technology (TTT) is the result of a joint venture partnership with Kal Tire Mining Group.

SST also produces a commercial TPMS (CBS) for transit, coach and school buses based on the durability and reliability of our OTR product.   CBS is the result of 3 years of research, engineering and extensive pilot programs.   The company recently introduced a high temperature monitoring system for industrial applications such as wood pellet mills where real time reporting of bearing temperatures help operators increase safety and maintain optimal output.

In addition, there are several products in development to provide industry specific solutions.  SST offers a complete solution which includes communication modules, site repeaters and base station system with software to manage vehicles and equipment. Combined with support, training and remote monitoring services, SST Wireless is performance under pressure.

SST is based in Delta, BC.  The company is growing and is seeking exceptional people to join our team.  For more information, visit our website at www.sstwireless.com.
