Demand for PCL’s expert tyre inflation and compressed air products is rising rapidly in China following successful shows at Automechanika, Shanghai and AMR, Beijing.
Products were showcased to visitors from China and across the world, with representatives from garage workshops, petrol forecourts and vehicle manufacturers keen to see PCL’s latest equipment in action.
Automechanika and AMR provided excellent opportunities to introduce staff from PCL’s new sales and trading office in China, PCL Shanghai, and launch its world-leading tyre inflation and compressed air products. PCL Shanghai, based in Songjiang Shanghai, is co-ordinating sales activities throughout China, working with local suppliers to provide a focal point for PCL’s developing business there.
Visitors were guided through PCL’s state-of-the-art tyre inflation and air technology for petrol forecourt, tyreshops, car dealerships, automotive plants and suppliers, and fleets and were able to see the quality, performance and robustness of the PCL range first hand.
Centre stage was its market-leading portfolio of products for nitrogen tyre inflation, which provides extra safety, increased fuel economy and extended tyre life, saving the driver money whilst being environmentally friendly.
Now redesigned and fully made in PCL Shanghai’s factory, allowing standards in nitrogen inflation to be taken to new levels, these products include:
- the N2 Generator, capable of delivering high levels of nitrogen, and representing the latest PSA nitrogen generation technology in a robust, cost effective and mobile design.
- the N2 Inflator, developed to deliver N2 inflation cost-effectively, with automatic preset facility – so accurate and reliable that it enables the operator to get on with other work whilst up to 4 tyres are inflated simultaneously, thus saving time and money.
The shows also provided a platform for the launch of the ACCURA QUBE Tower. This freestanding version of the popular, space-saving product, places the 150mmx150mm unit on a column so you can place it wherever you like. It offers fast and accurate tyre inflation within a simple, safe, state-of-the-art design.
Simon Shorter, General Manager, PCL Asia, said: “Automechanika Shanghai and AMR were a fantastic opportunity to make new friends and build on existing relationships in China and throughout Asia. Both of the exhibitions proved a success for PCL China, demonstrating substantial growth in the Chinese and Asian markets, with the QUBE and nitrogen products leading the way.”
He continued: “We were especially proud to receive accolades from representatives of local companies, in particular Mr Hai Zong of GM Dali Automobile Maintenance Equipment – one of China’s most successful tyre equipment manufacturers – whose company now uses PCL inflators.”
Robert Wang, PCL’s GM in China added: “We are pleased to be able to provide a first class, local service for customers here in China. We are able to combine the established PCL international network of distributors and our own range of products, including those able to meet international standards, means that we are able to support locally manufactured product worldwide. This is a huge benefit for international companies now manufacturing and assembling their own product in China.”
