The Tyre Equipment Company to Exhibit Ken-Tool range at The Commercial Vehicle ShoR

The Tyre Equipment Company
This year, TEC will be exhibiting in the Workshop section of the show which is located in Hall 4. The TEC team can be found on stand 4E121.
This year’s upcoming Commercial Vehicle Show will see The Tyre Equipment Company (TEC) return to the NEC showcasing a selection of commercial tyre changing tools and equipment from Ken-Tool, as well as other products from the TEC range. Ken-Tool, headquartered in Ohio, is a manufacturer of tyre service tools worldwide. It has been providing the tyre industry and automotive aftermarket with products for over 90 years.

Ken-Tool’s products were added to the TEC product range from 1st January 2017, with TEC beginning to supply these throughout the UK and Ireland. The collaboration between the two companies means that customers can benefit from more choice when selecting bead breakers, wrenches and tyre levers and easy access to specialist Ken-Tool products such as the Blue Cobra Truck Tyre Demount Tool and the T54 Heavy-Duty Ratchet Action Tyre Spreader.

The Blue Cobra Truck Tyre Demount Tool allows the operator to quickly demount the majority of 22.5” tubeless truck tyres – up to a 13” wide wheel. It helps to reduce back injuries by allowing the demounting of the tyre without lifting the entire wheel and tyre off the ground.

Ken-Tool’s range additionally has products like the Deluxe Blue Cobra Tubeless Truck Tyre Service Set, which includes the aforementioned Blue Cobra demount tool, a tubeless tyre iron, a double-end tyre spoon, a bead breaking wedge (with safety handle), a heavy-duty tyre hammer with a replaceable rubber head, a bucket of euro paste lube, a euro-style lube applicator brush, an aluminium C-Lok bead holder and a leather rim protector.  

There will be a chance to win Ken-Tool’s Deluxe Blue Cobra Tubeless Truck Tyre Service Set by taking part in a competition on the TEC stand. This set contains all the tools needed to change most 22.5” and 24.5” tubeless truck tyres, currently available for £385.00 excl VAT. 

The union between the two companies further adds to TEC’s range of tyre service parts and equipment, which includes a selection of products from leading equipment manufacturers such as PCL and Schrader.  As well as Ken-Tool, visitors can expect to see a wide array of tools from other leading manufacturers on the stand and the TEC team will be on hand to provide technical advice and assistance.
