Brityrex International at EventCity, Manchester in October is shaping up to be an
exhibition the industry can be really proud of. With high profile exhibitors continuing to
sign up for the show on a regular basis, organiser ECI International has also confirmed a
number of other exciting developments.
Visitors will be able to take advantage of a series of free technical seminars presented
by highly qualified experts, covering topical industry subjects.
On the opening day of the show, Tuesday, 9 October, Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems
(TPMS) and Tyre Labelling will be the focus of attention, as both will be subject to new
legislation in the near future.
Three sessions on Wednesday 10th will cover Retreading, TPMS and changes to the tyre
repair standard BSAU159G, while on Thursday 11 October the Tyre Labelling seminar
will be repeated. All sessions will include time for Questions and Answers.
Organised by show sponsor the NTDA in conjunction with the Tyre Industry Federation,
the seminars will provide invaluable expert advice and information in a practical, handson

advantage of the concept are Italian retreader Malatesta Pneumatici , Spanish retreader Insa Turbo and Portugal’s Recauchutagem Nortenha S.A. Car
tyre retreading will also be represented in the main Brityrex exhibition hall by Polish manufacturer Profil.
For many visitors the main attraction will be suppliers of new tyres covering applications for all market sectors. A wide range of exciting brands from
around the world will be on display, including Westlake, Infinity, Kleber, Matador, Cooper, Uniroyal Truck Tyres, Ling Long, Aeolus, Antyre, Admiral,
Marshall, Infinity, Jinyu, Rotalla and many others.

First time exhibitor Vortex Exhaust Technology aims to simplify the Exhaust Market, reduce
stockholding and bring additional revenue streams to Garages and Fitting Stations.
Remember the good old days when a few exhaust parts covered the vast majority of the cars that required a new exhaust. Well, they are back. All
that is needed is a new approach and the stocking of a revolutionary patented product – The Vortex exhaust.
Capable of being fitted to almost anything with an internal combustion engine Vortex exhausts can enable fitters to deal with around 99% of all
vehicles coming through the door, with very little stock investment.
Vortex is not a range of “freeflow” silencers, nor is it a “me-too” replacement for the original equipment or aftermarket product already on the car. In
fact it’s not like a conventional silencer at all. The Vortex products really are unique. The clever, patented internal designs of the Vortex exhaust
creates a turbine effect inside the silencer, causing a vacuum which literally sucks gases out of the engine allowing it to breathe more easily, and burn
fuel more efficiently.
As a result all Vortex exhausts are guaranteed to deliver more power and more torque, yet at the same time reduce emissions and, best of all, will
reduce fuel consumption, typically by around 7%-10%! And all without any re-mapping required!
Vehicles fitted with Turbo chargers suffer noticeably less turbo-lag once a Vortex is fitted and the smoother running engines (turbo or non-turbo)
always deliver fuel economy improvements.
From boy racer to family car, van, pick-up, 4WD or classic car Vortex has a range that will suit all-comers.
The ability to weld stainless steel is a must, and installers must have a pipe bender as all Vortexexhausts are custom built.
With no need to hold massive stocks – a few Vortex exhausts can cover many applications – and with full training given to would-be Vortex dealers,
a revenue opportunity is there for those that want to take it.
Garages and fitting stations looking for new revenue streams could do a lot worse than take a fresh look at the exhaust market.
With estimates that shipping costs typically represent
somewhere between 3-10% of the street price of tyres,
effective freight management is a hugely important
consideration for tyre importers in today’s market.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Maritime Cargo
Services (MCS) handles more than 20,000 containers a year
on behalf of its clients. One of the UK’s leading and well
established freight forwarding specialists in the tyre industry,
MCS looks after more than 20 major tyre importers and
manages the Customs Clearance and delivery of thousands of
containers to well over a hundred tyre warehouses and depots
throughout the UK and Ireland. This track record and a
reputation for excellence means that MCS can offer tyre
importers the best possible sea freight rates and an
unparalleled delivery service.
MCS attributes a great deal of its continuing success in the
tyre industry to an absolute dedication to customer service.
“There are two essential ingredients at the heart of our
customer service offering,” Partner, Rob Shelley explains.
“Firstly, our dedicated team of professionals. We only employ
highly motivated, dedicated and empowered professionals
who are determined to provide the very best in container
management services for the tyre industry time after time.
“Secondly, we continue to invest not just in the best people
in the business but, in order to meet and exceed client
expectations we continue to invest heavily in the development
of our own bespoke, state-of-the-art technology.”
MCS offers its tyre industry clients an innovative online
freight management and tracking system, MOATS, which was
designed to encompass absolutely all of the customer’s
relevant shipping information. The result is a fast, flexible and
multi-faceted online system supplying real-time information
safely and securely whenever it’s required. MOATS has also
been future-proofed to continue to meet the requirements of
tomorrow and is provided to all clients free of charge!
Bond International to exhibit six exclusive
brands at Brityrex International
Leading tyre wholesaler Bond International has signed up
for a major presence at October’s Brityrex exhibition in
The Pocklington, York-based company will be using the
show to promote its portfolio of six exclusive UK
distributorships for brands including Marshall, Infinity,
Admiral, Jinyu, Sailun and Rotalla.
Company founder and managing director, Reg Bond, says:
“When we decide to promote the company we always give
it 100% and do it in style. That’s why we have taken a major
stand at Brityrex that will give us the space and prominence
to display our exclusive UK brands to maximum effect. We
have thousands of customers across the country and we
want to give them a good reason to travel to the show and
visit our stand.
“The UK is a major international market for tyres and
deserves to have a show that reflects that status. We hope
other companies will follow our lead and make Brityrex
2012 a show to remember.”
Brityrex focus for Matador Truck & Bus
Radial sales drive from KRT
Brityrex will form a major part of Kings Road Tyres’ (KRT) plans to
promote sales and awareness of Matador Truck and Bus Radial (TBR) tyres
in the UK this autumn.
KRT became the exclusive suppliers of the range in late 2011 and has
identified Matador’s 87-year tyre manufacturing heritage and reputation
for quality as key factors, as it seeks to boost sales.
A new website covering the full portfolio of Matador truck and bus
applications for Regional and Long Haul, Mixed Service, City Urban and
Winter fitments is now live at www.matadortyres.co.uk
“Matador is an exciting brand with a great deal going for it,” says Tim
Bader, KRT’s purchasing and marketing manager. “Not only is it a member
of the Continental Group, which speaks volumes about its commitment to
high quality products, but it also has a comprehensive range of
competitively priced tyres covering all major commercial market sectors.
“One of the points we’ll be emphasising at Brityrex is that as a mid-range
product, all tyres are both regroovable and retreadable, delivering extra
performance and value for money to end users,” explains Tim.
Matador traces its tyre-making heritage back to 1925 and is now part of
Continental AG; all products continue to be manufactured in Europe and
the company has its base in Puchov, Slovakia.
Matador is also committed to environmental protection. The company
aims for continuous improvement in all activities to reduce environmental
impact. It holds the ISO14001certificate of environmental management
and was the first company in the Czech and Slovak Republic to meet the
ISO 9001 standards for car tyre production.
Haweka Provide Cost Saving Solutions
at Brityrex International
Haweka UK, the world’s leading
independent manufacturer of wheel
balancing accessories and commercial
vehicle alignment equipment, are
showing their comprehensive range at
The Haweka stand will showcase the
company’s complete range of
commercial vehicle alignment equipment
including the all-new Axis 4000. This
fully computerised system can now
include a complete data set of truck
wheel alignment settings to enable real
time comparison of actual readings
against manufacturers specifications. The greatest advantage of the
Haweka range is speed. There is no other wheel alignment machine that
allows the operator to measure a twin axle semi-trailer in 10 minutes. The
Haweka range is able to do this thanks to its patented wheel clamps,
which are attached to the wheel rim by means of powerful magnetic feet
(with additional grab arms for aluminium rims) and the measurement can
begin immediately. These unique clamps are used on all Haweka aligners.
John Pullin of Haweka UK said: “In today’s tough economic climate the
importance of correct vehicle alignment cannot be over emphasised. The
equipment makes it possible for the commercial vehicle owner/operator to
easily and quickly unlock the savings available from reduced fuel
consumption and tyre ware. A one degree misalignment on one axle
could increase fuel consumption by around 5%.”

Profil” deals with production and wholesale of retreaded car tires for
all types of cars: personal, delivery and off-road ones, in many sizes
and many patterns of the tread, both winter and summer types.
The treading, also called the regeneration, consists in placing a new
layer of the tread on the tire and strengthening the tire sides. The final
product is a tire whose parameters do not differ from the parameters of
a new tire (equally durable) and which is in fact more preferred in the
world taking into consideration environment protection (recycling)
The “Profil” company regenerates mainly tires for personal, delivery
and off-road cars, in typical sizes: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 inch
ones, as they are the most popular sizes on the market. The technology
of producing the treaded tire and the tire itself are characterized by
high quality, durability and good use, which is especially important
taking into account the safety of driving. Apart from the abovementioned
features, it has much lower price than the new tire. Our
company buys the highest quality products from well-established
producers of rubber mixes and from foreign tire providers.
Since the beginning of its operation the “Profil” company has paid
special attention to the quality of produced tires. A number of tests
carried out before and after the regeneration allows us to produce a
faultless tire which is ready to be used.

Winning the NTDA TAFF Tyre & Aftermarket Supplier of the Year
award has brought even more attention to the technical expertise of
our TPMS programme. As we are progressing with our training
programmes all across the UK we are receiving more and more
positive feedback about the expertise we are able to demonstrate and
share with our customers. The response has been greatly appreciated
by everyone involved with Autogem.
A common theme has been the ability of tyre traders and garages to
not only retain business which would have been lost without the right
equipment, but to also maximise the tools for greater revenues.
In 2011 we were predominantly informing customers about our
programme, so far in 2012 we have been in full swing training them.
This support will be supplemented by the introduction of further
technical TPMS product in the coming months.
In addition to this we are excited about presenting ourselves for the
first time at the Reifen Show in Essen, Germany where we will be
demonstrating some of the training techniques that have allowed our
programme to be recognised as award winning. Reifen will be
followed a few months later with what we hope will be another
excellent show at Brityrex, Manchester between the 9th and 11th
All in all 2012 is looking like another busy year for Autogem where
we will be exhibiting at 8 shows and dedicating 25-30 evenings to
training and educational courses for our customers. Our mantra
remains, think TPMS think Autogem.
