Wheely-Safe has agreed a new distribution deal with emergency services lighting and equipment supplier Woodway Engineering.

The contract will see Woodway Engineering supply its UK and Ireland customers with Wheely-Safe’s latest generation of intelligent tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), wheel loss and wheel rim temperature sensors.

The family firm will offer Wheely-Safe’s products both as original equipment through tender bids and as a retrofit option for fleets across the blue light sector.

Chris Butcher, Woodway Engineering MD, said the company “jumped at the chance” to add Wheely-Safe’s technology to its portfolio.

He added: “It’s a safety critical system that fits perfectly within the emergency services market. As a brand, Wheely-Safe has already developed a strong reputation within the sector.

“The technology is excellent; it’s easy to install and brings instant benefits in terms of safety, compliance, fuel savings and longer tyre life – it ticks every box.”

Paul Henson, Woodway Engineering sales and marketing manager, added: “There is great synergy with the product and what we are already supplying.

“We work with virtually every emergency services fleet in the country, and we will be offering the technology to the same converters which already fit our lights and sirens onto new vehicles prior to delivery – be it a fire appliance, ambulance or police vehicle.”

“Another strength of Wheely-Safe’s systems is that they can be easily retrofitted. This allows operators to protect their fleets almost immediately, and then make it a standard feature on all future orders.”

Steve Jackson, Wheely-Safe MD, said the new contract sees the company make further inroads into the emergency sector.

“We’ve had great successes in the emergency services sector, and Woodway Engineering is the ideal partner to help us ensure even more fleets are protected against the risk of wheel loss, tyre under-inflation and brake or hub issues involving high temperatures.

“Partnering with a business that has such a long history in this market makes perfect sense,” he said.
