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 Vortex™exhausts 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. www.vortex-performance-exhausts.co.uk


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 retreading, 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. www.profil-zro.com.pl

Haweka UK, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of wheel balancing accessories and commercial vehicle alignment equipment, are showing their comprehensive range at Brityrex International. 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%.” To view the new generation of wheel balancing accessories and discover how to reduce the running costs of your commercial fleet visit Haweka UK at Brityrex International on stand number 53 or go to www.haweka.co.uk
