After DSV, ICTS and Ancotrans, Ultra-Seal can now also add TIP Trailers Sweden and MAN-dealer ROSIERVANDENBOSCH to its customer base. Furthermore, large bus companies, truck owners, trailer constructors and heavy-duty equipment users have shown interest in purchasing the preventative tyre sealant liquid to overcome breakdowns, provide an extra safety factor and to save on fuel costs. Mr Martin Nielsen, Country Operations Manager of TIP Trailers Sweden, says: ’After hearing about the results of Ultra-Seal in the DSV fleet, we could not ignore the fact that Ultra-Seal could be valuable for our business and for our customers’ business operations. We have tested the product and are now using it, and we are already able to fill tyres of internal and external vehicles at our workshop in Gothenburg, and in the near future also at Jönköping and Helsingborg. We are very enthusiastic about the product and our expectations are high in terms of the benefits for the professional transport sector.’
Ultra-Seal is currently working on further expanding its reach via national distributors. The first new distributor for the French market is Henko, with Ludovic Morel as director of both Henko and Angels Group who own Auto Clean Service and Autobella. These two car wash leaders have over 100 stations in France. Henko has already started the distribution in France, to targeted transport companies, truck dealers and the OEM market.
The Ultra-Seal product is environmentally-friendly. Official reports from Mediator A/S state that the product does not harm the environment, due to the ingredients which contain less than 30% ethylene glycol. It can be rinsed off with just a little bit of water and can be flushed through the drain.
‘The ultimate tyre life extender’ is a preventative tyre sealant liquid which was invented to protect tyres from leaks, punctures and blowouts. It seals most punctures as they happen, achieving a permanent repair, it ensures heat reduction, extends tyre life by keeping the air pressure in the tyre, minimises tyre wear and reduces fuel consumption. It remains effective for the complete life of the tyre, without having to undergo extra maintenance. Ultra-Seal is environmentally friendly and provides the driver with an extra safety factor.
Ultra-Seal will participate in the IAA in Hannover, from 22-29 September 2016, located in Hall 25, stand D61.
