Long-established equipment supplier, The Tyre Equipment Company (TEC), has added American manufacturer Ken-Tool’s products to its range and began supplying these throughout the UK and Ireland on the 1st January 2017.
Ken-Tool, a leader in automotive aftermarket tyre repair tools, manufactures tyre changing tools and equipment and has been established for over 90 years. The company is based in Akron, Ohio.
TEC already supplies an extensive range of products for a number of industries including the agricultural, plant, mining and commercial vehicle sectors. The company is also heavily focussed on supplying tools to end users and tyre fitters for use in their own workshops.
Products are easy to order through TEC’s website with next-day delivery offered on all orders to UK mainland addresses – regardless of the size or weight of an order.
The collaboration between the two companies means that customers are able to 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 (35440) and the T54 Heavy-Duty Ratchet Action Tyre Spreader (31554).
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. A video demonstration of this product is available on the TEC website.
Ken-Tool’s T54 Heavy-Duty Ratchet Action Tyre Spreader is also available from the TEC website. It has a minimum jaw opening of 89mm and a maximum jaw opening of 360mm.
