Specialist wheel supplier acquires tyre pressure monitoring company
Specialist supplier of assembled wheels, tyres and wheel bolts, Wheel Solutions Limited (WSL), has acquired TyrePal Ltd - the tyre pressure monitoring (TPMS) company.
With almost 30 years' experience under its belt, WSL remains to be one of the largest independent suppliers of wheel and tyre products within the caravan industry, whilst TyrePal is the leader in the after-market supply of TPMS to market segments including caravans and motorhomes, so the acquisition looks to have made perfect sense and is sure to utilise both company's strengths within the industry in order for them to evolve under the same roof.
Although primarily an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier, WSL are also active within the consumer market, where they have designed and developed the innovative WSL Safety Bolt for the Caravan sector. This handy little number is the first bespoke wheel bolt designed for the caravan industry and represents a huge leap forward in technical development - something unachieved in decades, which is no surprise considering WSL's innovative approach to wheel safety solutions. WSL are also responsible for fitting Laser Balanced wheels, Security and Michelin tyres, as well as anti-tamper WSL Safety Bolts and TyrePal TPMS Internal Sensors for its OEM customers.
Steve Budding, Managing Director of WSL, said of the recent acquisition: "Tyre pressure monitoring is something for which our customers have been asking, and when the opportunity arose to acquire this well respected leader in the UK TPMS market, it seemed a perfect fit in reinforcing our position as the wheel and tyre safety experts in the markets we service."
We at CaravanTimes look forward to seeing what's next on the agenda following the acquisition as far as innovative wheel products are concerned, and are excited to see where this goes.
