Akron, Ohio USA – (August 9, 2013) – Ken-Tool, the leader in tire servicing hand tools and equipment, has announced that Dublin, Ireland-based Wheelcare, Ltd. has become a Ken-Tool distributor for its wheel and tire service bay customers.
Wheelcare, Ltd. has nearly 30 years of service to the Irish tire service industry, and extends its reach into the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece and other countries.
Killian McNabb, Managing Director of Wheelcare said, “We have always viewed Ken-Tool and its product line with the highest regard. When the opportunity came to become a distributor, we took it, straightaway. The biggest factor that influenced us choosing to distribute Ken-Tool products was innovation. Ken-Tool has always led the way in solving the problems facing tyre technicians and fitters around the world. This innovation, coupled with extremely high quality manufacturing makes the Ken-Tool range top class.
