West Midlands-based Wheely-Safe, the first in-motion driver alert system for wheel loss, tyre pressure and brake overheating, has announced two senior appointments.
Steve Jackson, 53 (pictured), has been appointed Managing Director – bringing a wealth of expertise gained through 12 years at Wrightbus, most recently as Head of UK Sales. Prior to his career at Wrightbus, he spent five years as Rental and Sales Manager for Dawson Rentals.
Mr Jackson says: “Wheel loss and under-inflation are major issues for fleets globally; yet here is a company with first-class technical expertise developing a simple, intuitive, low cost, and extremely effective system which solves these problems once and for all.”
Wheely-Safe has also promoted Andy Congrave, 56, to the new role of Sales Director, after nearly two years with the business.
Mr Congrave commentss: “The fact we’ve been made an official global licensee of Michelin speaks volumes for the technology we have to offer.”
During 2018 Wheely-Safe will roll-out its full range of products, which will include technology to alert drivers and operators to potential wheel loss situations on heavy commercial vehicles, including plant and trailers.
