Wheely Safe has appointed Steve Jackson as managing director and Andy Congrave as sales director.

The senior appointments were made to drive its growth across the fleet market for cars, vans, buses, coaches, trucks, trailers and plant equipment.

Steve Jackson (pictured), appointed managing director, was formerly head of UK sales at Wrightbus and brings 12 years of relevant industry experience.

Jackson said: “When I first saw the products demonstrated I was absolutely convinced they’d make a difference and I wanted to be part of the team.

“Wheel loss and under-inflation are major issues for fleets globally; yet here is a company with first-class technical expertise developing a simple, intuitive, low cost, and extremely effective system which solves these problems once and for all.”

Andy Congrave (below) was also welcomed to the role of sales director, after nearly two years with the business, having jointed in September 2016 as sales manager.

Congrave said: “We see huge potential for Wheely Safe products in both the UK and globally, as wheel and tyre security issues affect us all.

"The fact we’ve been made an official global licensee of Michelin speaks volumes for the technology we have to offer.”

During 2018 Wheely Safe will roll-out its full range of products, which will include technology to alert drivers and operators to potential wheel loss situations on heavy commercial vehicles, including plant and trailers.

Wheely Safe will also be launching tyre pressure monitoring, pressure checking and brake temperature sensing systems for passenger car and both light and heavy commercial vehicle fleets.
