Wheely-Safe Confirms Woodway Engineering as Distribution Partner for Emergency Services


Coventry-based Emergency Services lighting and equipment supplier Woodway Engineering has agreed on a new distribution contract with Wheely-Safe, to supply the latest TPMS technology, wheel loss and wheel rim temperature sensors to its UK and Ireland customer base.

Wheely-Safe the Right Fit for Woodway Engineering

Chris Butcher, Managing Director at Woodway Engineering, says: “I have been aware of Wheely-Safe since the first fleets began trialling the technology, and when the opportunity arose to add to our portfolio, we jumped at the chance.

“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.”

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

Paul Henson, Sales & Marketing Manager at Woodway Engineering, says: “There is great synergy with the product and what we are already supplying. We work with virtually every emergency services fleet in the country. We will be offering the technology to the same converters which already fit our lights and sirens onto new vehicles before delivery – be it a fire appliance, ambulance or police vehicle.

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

Steve Jackson, Managing Director at Wheely-Safe says: “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.”
