UK recognised as one of the world’s most significant alignment markets

The UK has been recognised as one of the main countries in the world with advancing growth in wheel alignment by leading wheel servicing equipment manufacturer Hunter, following the award of its ‘Platinum Partner’ status to its UK distributor, Pro-Align.

Presented with the award at a recent global distributor meeting, Pro-Align was acknowledged for its outstanding performance in 2012, which placed it in a record third place in Hunter’s rankings, just behind Germany and India.

“We’re delighted to have received this award for the fantastic contribution we’re making to the Hunter community around the world and specifically advancing wheel alignment in the UK,” comments Paul Beaurain, managing director, Pro-Align. “The Hunter brand is already highly regarded by many workshops throughout the UK yet it still continues to gather an even bigger, passionate following. With several other new products in the pipeline and an enthusiastic team around us, we look forward to building upon this success even further.”

To mark their achievement, Pro-Align Directors Paul and Kathryn Beaurain were presented with a commemorative plaque by Beau Brauer, Executive Vice President of Hunter Engineering.

Pro-Align has been a distributor for Hunter’s innovative products for the last 17 years. While imaging wheel alignment equipment, such as the highly regarded HawkEye Elite TD and QuickCheck systems, remain the core of the business, the company’s current range now also includes advanced wheel balancers, tyre changers and alignment lifts.

“The UK has really woken up to the opportunities offered by wheel alignment and it’s fantastic that we’re at the very front of this movement with some of the most advanced, yet useable systems on the market. We certainly feel that the combination of Hunter’s quality and innovation along with our exceptional levels of customer care make our offering desirable to workshops and we remain as excited as ever about the future,” adds Beaurain.
