Having launched its ground-breaking Cyclist Warning Display System - Cyclear™ - at last year's show Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS) returns to the Plant And Waste Recycling Show with a raft of high-spec vehicle safety products, designed and built in the UK.


Reverse camera systems, LED vehicle lighting, Reverse radar systems, Hard Disk Recording (DVR) and bespoke safety products, ISS continually invests in research and development to bring new technological solutions to the waste industry and help vehicle operators improve the safety and security of their fleets.

Gavin Thoday, Managing Director, ISS said: "It's great to be back at PAWRS. Since the introduction of the new Euro 6 vehicles we've had record-breaking sales across all our products and Cyclear is becoming firmly established as the leading cyclist safety system for the waste sector in the UK with growing interest from overseas. We design and build as much of our equipment in house as we can and we only invest in high specification products that meet our stringent standards. We will soon be launching more game-changing products into the market place so the next 12 months promises to be just as busy and that's the way we like it !"

The LANlink system is going down a storm with ISS clients because it has been developed to help provide peace of mind for waste vehicle operators. Designed to work in harmony with Hard Disk Recording (DVR) systems LANlink enables recorded footage to be downloaded remotely and automatically, by WiFi, as each vehicle returns to the depot.
With no monthly on-costs, LANlink is a cost efficient and reliable solution, which also produces a daily health report for every camera and recording device on each vehicle, so any faults can be addressed immediately.

Cyclear is being adopted by an increasing proportion of local authorities and private sector operators and financial projections are on target to achieve sales of £2.5million this year in the UK alone. The system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists and vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left. An optional sequencing sensor alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching and filters out the false alarms that plagued its predecessors. Vehicle operators can use one or both elements of Cyclear installed on their fleet depending on specific requirements and budget.

The City of London Corporation is a CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety) champion and FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Gold Accredited, and in a recent trials its waste collection, cleansing and recycling provider Amey awarded the highest possible scores to ISS for Cyclear and its four-way camera system.

Grant Taw, Transport Compliance Manager (City of London Contract), Amey said: "The build quality of Cyclear is better than the majority of its competitors and the system usability keeps things simple without adding confusion or over complicating the information being fed back to the driver. The driver still needs to drive and that can't be secondary to safety equipment."

VWS Bin Weighing Takes Centre Stage at PAWRS 2015 - Stand 32


Star of the show on the VWS stand at PAWRS 2015 (9-11 June, Paignton) will be ENVIROWEIGH - the bin-weigher - still the most popular and accurate bin weighing system for waste management operators. However, VWS will also be wowing visitors with an exciting range of new and innovative products.

Since last years show VWS has gone on to develop its own software package, PurGo, designed specifically for the waste collection and recycling industry. When used in conjunction with VWS' ENVIROWEIGH bin weighing system waste operators are able to streamline their operations, by identifying the heaviest bins and therefore bill accurately as well as provide better reporting for customers. The result can mean millions of £s worth of savings.

Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd said: "We have been working very hard over the last year and we are delighted with the results of our efforts. Alongside our successful established products we have some very exciting new innovations. The PurGo system takes the weights directly from each ENVIROWEIGH bin weigher and analyses the weights of every bin to produce accurate billing. The two systems work so harmoniously together and there is definitely a demand for this kind of system in the waste management sector."

Co-starring at the show is VWS' latest Van Overload Protection System - VOPS2. More accurate than its predecessor VOPS2 is also easier to install and has an in-cab indicator display giving drivers clear front and rear, net and gross, axle weights.

Continued Julian: "Overloading a van is very easy to do and currently over 20% of vans that have been stopped are running overloaded. VOPS2 is leading in its field and provides continual, reliable data giving peace of mind to van operators and drivers, by preventing overloading from occurring."

VWS belongs to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as AW.co.uk specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing and traffic monitoring systems.

CMS SupaTrak launches integrated crash reconstruction system


Working with insurance underwriters and fleet operators, vehicle telematics specialist CMS SupaTrak have developed a combined video and telematics system, which delivers real time crash reconstruction.

The solution forms part of CMS SupaTrak's "Saving Money. Saving Lives." campaign, which focuses on promoting safer driving and managing road risk and accident prevention.

The combined video and telematics system delivers real time crash reconstruction information to incident management centres, referred to by insurance companies as first notification of loss centres (FNOL centres).

Using this real-time information, the incident centre is able to mitigate claims and ensure the correct medical assistance is made available to the driver, if required.

The system automatically identifies a potential road safety incident and starts sending back video and telematics data 20 seconds before and 10 seconds after the logged alert. In addition to the automated alerts, drivers can manually create an incident by pressing a button inside the vehicle.

When an incident is identified, the system will automatically create an alert, which generates an email with the video footage embedded and a text message, if required.

By combining synchronised live driver, video, vehicle telematics and location data, the CMS SupaTrak Crash Reconstruction System can help save money and save lives.

CMS SupaTrak's Managing Director Jason Airey explains "our new Crash Reconstruction System has been conceived through our work with insurance under writers and our existing customers. It provides a solution to the challenges faced when an incident does occur and the integration of the captured data enables fleet managers and FNOL centres to handle claims as efficiently as possible."

Vision Techniques getting 'on their bike' at upcoming PAWRS show


Vision Techniques will be giving interactive demonstrations of their latest cyclist safety product 'VT TurnAware' at this years' PAWRS event in Paignton.

The Blackburn based vehicle safety experts will be suiting up with high visibility jackets and pedalling to promote cyclist safety with the team biking around their brand new exhibition vehicle to prove that their new camera system is able to detect approaching cyclists.

VT TurnAware is a cyclist detection system which uses video analytics to detect any hazard approaching the vehicle. When a cyclist approaches, the hardware is able to detect the movement of the cyclist using blind spot mounted cameras. Once detected, TurnAware warns the driver visibly by highlighting the danger on a monitor and audibly with onboard speakers.

VT TurnAware is also able to distinguish the difference between approaching cyclists, other vehicles nearby and road furniture like signposts and bollards, eliminating all false alarming. Existing Systems like ultrasonic sensors often fail to determine the difference between these hazards which leads to driver overloading and safety systems being disconnected from frustration.

"We think the new VT TurnAware is very much the evolution to side mounted ultrasonics. As well as preventing false alarming it also gives the driver a clear view of any approaching danger, which ultrasonics simply can't do." Marketing Manager Dominic Benabda explained, who will be demonstrating the system from the brand new exhibition vehicle at this years' event.

"So far we've achieved impressive statistics with the overall detection of hazards with VT TurnAware. We think seeing is believing, which is why we'll be bringing a bike along to the stand."

The video analytics system is proving to be very popular with existing customers, however Vision Techniques will be looking for customers interested in running free trials in the new technology within different industries and environments.

The system will be demonstrated alongside brand new additions to their product lines including VT Ident DriveStop, an RFID vehicle control system and VT TurnSign, their completely tailorable illuminated cyclist sign.

Vision Techniques will be exhibiting at this years' PAWRS show alongside their OWL partners CMS SupaTrak as part of the OWL Innovation zone, dedicated to offering combined solutions within the waste industry.

Penny Hydraulics launch new Hydraulic Crane Range


Penny Hydraulics is delighted to announce the launch of their new range of fully hydraulic PH Cranes which will be exhibited at PAWRS 2015. Introduced to meet the needs of the 1 to 18 tonne UK commercial vehicle market, the PH Crane range offers over 470 lightweight, user-friendly and innovative models. The range has between 0,5 and 5 tm lifting capacity with boom reaches up to 6.83 metres. A variety of optional extras and accessories are available including full stability control, high speed hoists and radio remote controls.

With over 37 years' experience converting commercial vehicles and as Tier 1 suppliers to the largest vehicle leasing companies in the UK, suppliers to councils, utilities and highways companies, Penny Hydraulics are extensively well connected within the industry. These connections and customer feedback have made it apparent that there is a need for higher capacity cranes to service their growing fleets.

More than ever, these customers are under increased pressure to eliminate manual handling in their workplace. Statistics from the HSE, expose yet again the need to avoid manual handling and give more credence to calls for wider use of vehicle mounted cranes and other load handling devices. The figures show that one percent of all fatal, serious and over-three-day injuries during the last reporting year were related to manual handling. This represents 37,000 people whose lives have been directly affected.

Often the simplest way to reduce the risk of an accident and resulting injury is to remove the potential cause. Penny Hydraulics existing customer base understand that providing employees with a crane on their vehicles is a good place to start. Penny Hydraulics continues to play their part by adding new products and features that promote safety and make it easier for operators to specify and install their products.

The new PH Crane range incorporate full hydraulic control for even the lightest units. This type of control prevents the need to access the bed of the vehicle and coupled with the use of proportional controls, helps ensure smooth and precise load handling with reduced risk of the sudden and unexpected movements that can cause accidents to users and bystanders.

PH Cranes which are fitted with a variety of innovative safety features are powered via the vehicle battery and are therefore supplied in either 12V or 24V. Alternatively, where P.T.O. is available on the vehicle, a crane can be specified to suit.

A choice of remote controls is available. Remote controls are especially useful from a safety point of view because they reduce the need for operators to stand in close proximity to the load therefore, increasing operator safety. Two types of control are available. The first is attached to the crane by a length of cable known as a wander lead while the second is a wireless device that provides the user with complete autonomy to stand in any position with the best all-round view of the working area.

The new designs are highly compact, both in working and in transport position maximising important, usable space on the vehicle. Throughout the range, weight has been removed where possible without compromising on performance and safety. Operators can install a PH Crane with confidence that there is minimum impact on the overall vehicle weight leaving more carrying capacity for improved operational flexibility and productivity. Although this helps with all types of vehicle it is especially useful for those in the 3.5t and 7.5t classes where remaining within the overall weight and carrying capacity limits are always of concern to operators.

Manufactured from the latest high quality steels, including Domex and Weldox, crane structures are high strength and durable yet lightweight, helping to reduce emissions, maximise fuel economy and maximise payload.

Even ahead of the formal launch, PH cranes are exceeding sales forecast and are already proving to be a great success. Many units have already been installed on commercial vehicles and are in operation throughout the UK for companies such as Skanska, Ringway Jacobs, United Utilities, as well as Oak Leaf Gates, a Hereford based luxury gate and garage door manufacturer. In December 2014, Richard Eccleston, MD of the company approached Penny Hydraulics as he required a fully hydraulic crane to help lift work equipment and his customers high value bespoke goods onto his trailer.

A PH150, 1.5 tm crane was specified, lifting a maximum of 1230 kg and having a maximum boom reach of 5 metres. The crane is already having a positive impact on Richard and his team, he comments "We are really happy with the PH150, it's easy to use, compact and is helping us to work safer and smarter. Having the service back-up was a big draw for us if we ever need it in the future. Any vehicle or equipment downtime has a huge impact on our business; therefore we need to avoid this at all costs. It gives me peace of mind knowing that Penny Hydraulics has engineers on the road and that they can keep us up to date with LOLER Thorough examinations too."

Penny Hydraulics, founded in 1978, has grown to become the UK's leading manufacturer of load handling equipment for commercial vehicles. These products are serviced and supported by a nationwide network of engineers who carry OEM parts and have specialist knowledge of their products and the far reaching implications of health and safety. The service team is supported by an in-house team of designers, applications engineers and technical experts. Their accumulated knowledge provides insight into the market and the requirements of individual customers. Existing product ranges include Swing Lift cranes, V and FV hydraulic cranes and the Load Lift, Side Lift and Tail Lift loading platform ranges for use on pick-ups, drop-sides and vans as well as their own range of electric winches.

Through its membership of organisations including ISO and B.S Committees, SMMT and ALLMI, Penny Hydraulics is well placed to understand the challenges and issues facing all load handling equipment users. The four Company Directors are closely involved with the industry and actively participate on the bodies that agree standards and safety legislation. This has given the company a unique insight that enables it to deliver excellence to the industries it serves.

Vision Techniques to launch RFID tagging system at PAWRS 2014


Vehicle safety solutions experts Vision Techniques are introducing their latest product, an RFID based control system called 'VT Ident' at this years PAWRS event in Paignton.

The Ident system can allow or restrict access to any electrical control element of the vehicle, from vehicle ignition to use of any rear machinery. Programmable tags when presented to the reader allow access to any specific function of the vehicle that needs protecting.

Our system is perfect to prevent vehicle theft when connected to the ignition system, as well as proving liability when using dangerous rear machinery, such as bin loaders. However, the possibilities of our system are truly limitless, allowing tailored control systems for any vehicle.

The tag system allows for different levels of authorisation between individuals, so for example a bin loader can be allowed access to systems at the rear of the vehicle, but refused access to the ignition or brake system - preventing accidents from unauthorised use.

Technical Manager Nigel Armstrong added "The beauty of our ident system is that we've been able to develop it ourselves, thanks to years of experience in the industry. We can integrate it with any vehicle and almost any electrical component, giving you more control over who accesses your vehicles."

Three different products are available within the Ident range, including DriveStop - controlling access of the ignition system, LiftStop - restricting access to the rear machinery and VT Ident - our complete vehicle control system. Vision Technique

More Innovation From ISS At PAWRS 2014 - Stand M25


Vehicle safety technology experts, Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS) promise to attract a lot of visitors to their stand at this year's Plant & Waste Recycling Show thanks to their new innovation - Cyclear™ - the Cyclist Warning Display System.

ISS will also be demonstrating the LANlink remote download facility, which saves vehicle operators time by downloading recorded camera footage from vehicles by wifi as soon as they return to the depot. The system also sends an automatic daily health report for each camera and recording device alerting the operator of any faults immediately.

Cyclear has been in development for the past two years and after successful tests of the prototype it is now in operation in a number of authority areas including Guildford Borough Council and London Borough of Sutton. The technology has also been adopted by private operators such as Serco.

The system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists and vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left. The latest version also has an optional sequencing sensor that alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching. Vehicle operators can use one or both elements of Cyclear installed on their fleet depending on specific requirements and budget.

Gavin Thoday said: "It is the only system of its kind to be developed for this purpose. Cyclear sensors filter out objects that aren't moving from the rear to the front end of the vehicle. The result is that we have practically eliminated the false alarming that made other systems unreliable." Paul Wells, Fleet & Waste Operations Manager, Guildford Borough Council said: "We take health and safety very seriously, which is why all our refuse and recycling vehicles are fitted with the latest digital CCTV recording technology, radars and 'Caution Workers' light-boards. When ISS approached us with Cyclear we had already recognised the need to take steps to keep cyclists safe. We were waiting for the right technology and we are confident that Cyclear is a great solution. Our drivers are reassured knowing they have something in place to help prevent accidents."

Cyclear has also been given the thumbs up by Chair of RoadPeace and cyclist safety campaigner, Cynthia Barlow, who said: "ISS has put a great deal of effort and engineering expertise into creating a safety system that is effective for both cyclists and vehicle operators. If used more widely, this system could really help to reduce the number of cyclist and pedestrian fatalities in our towns and cities."

Continued Gavin: "We are really excited about bringing Cyclear and LANlink to the show. Interest in both technologies is flooding in so we expect to be busy."

ISS supplies, installs and maintains the full range of safety and lighting products including reversing radars, CCTV camera systems, Hard Disk Recording, warning beacons and LED lighting packages.

The company has seen impressive growth over the past 12 months and has recently relocated to larger, fit for purpose premises, featuring a state of the art showroom to demonstrate its market leading technology, and providing excellent meeting facilities for its customers.

VWS rectified the problem and Chambers went on to order VWS' Enviroweigh dynamic bin-weigher for its Geesink Norba RCV. As the only British weights and measures approved bin-weighing system, and with an unrivalled accuracy to within 0.5% or better, Chambers can offer customers a pay by weight service. Enviroweigh also offers a host of data collection, storage, transfer and manipulation solutions for all kinds of IT infrastructures.

VWS went on to install underbody weighing systems to a wide range of vehicles in Chambers' fleet including two Cargotec Hook-lift loaders, two Thompsons Tippers and three Titan Walking Floor Trailers. Most recently VWS has been asked to install underbody and bin-weighing to the company’s Heil Big Bite.

Emma Chambers, Finance Director, Chambers said: "We have been delighted with the VWS product and support. They have been extremely helpful and have worked closely with us to manage the interface from the weighing system with our ISIS software package."

As Chambers' one-stop weighing partner VWS is responsible for servicing and maintaining existing weighing equipment, as well as installing new weighing technology, on the company's 55+ fleet of vehicles.

The Dynamic Weigh To A Fair Price


Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) has been helping North London based waste management company, KP Waste, introduce a 'pay as you throw' service for customers, by installing the dynamic ENVIROWEIGH bin-weighing system to the company's food waste collection vehicle operating in the City.

Kevin Hill, Managing Director, KP Waste said: "There can be a huge differential in the weight of different food stuffs filling the same bin and its unfair to charge customers the same. The bin weighing system from VWS is so accurate and it means we can do reports for our customers so they can compare their food disposal day by day and week by week."

The company's 7.5 tonne FARID minimatic vehicle has been specially adapted to incorporate a tipping mechanism for food waste and is perfect for underground collections with low ceiling loading bays. VWS also installed a four-camera CCTV system on the vehicle at no additional cost whatsoever to the client.

Continued Kevin: "The camera kit gives the driver better all round vision and helps prevent accidents, keeping vulnerable road users safe. We are over the moon with the equipment and service from VWS."

Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) is a market leading British engineering company specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of on-board vehicle weighing, wheeled bin weighing and load protection systems. The ENVIROWEIGH bin weighing system from VWS is the first truly British dynamic 'weights and measures approved' system of its kind, and is taking the market place by storm.

Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: "KP Waste are a great, forward thinking company and they are demonstrating how dynamic bin-weighing can help companies gain a competitive edge by offering a more accurate and informative service to customers."

VWS belongs to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as AW.co.uk specialising in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing and traffic monitoring systems.

Cyclist Safety High On Guildford Agenda


Guildford Borough Council is demonstrating its commitment to cyclist safety by equipping its waste collection fleet of 28 vehicles with the Cyclear cyclist warning display system from Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS).

Paul Wells, Fleet & Waste Operations Manager, Guildford Borough Council said: "We take health and safety very seriously, which is why all our refuse and recycling vehicles are fitted with the latest digital CCTV recording technology, radars and 'Caution Workers' light-boards. When ISS approached us with Cyclear we had already recognised the need to take steps to keep cyclists safe. We were waiting for the right technology and we are confident that Cyclear is a great solution. Our drivers are reassured knowing they have something in place to help prevent accidents."

Vehicle safety technology experts, ISS have been developing their Cyclear system for over 3 years. The company just launched its latest model, which incorporates a sensor to detect cyclists and warn drivers, so the onus to stay safe is on both driver and cyclist. Cyclist safety campaigner and Chair of RoadPeace, Cynthia Barlow, recently visited ISS offices for a demonstration of the system and has given it her full backing

Gavin Thoday, Director, ISS said: "Cyclear has an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists when the vehicle is turning left. Our latest model also features a sequencing sensor that notifies the driver when a cyclist is approaching from the rear to the front of the vehicle. Unlike other similar products our sensor distinguishes between the usual stationary objects at the side of the road and vulnerable road users such as cyclists. The result is virtually no false alarming, which makes for a much more effective and safer device."

As well as adopting the latest safety measures Guildford Borough Council has joined forces with other councils in the Surrey area to introduce a new recycling methodology moving away from kerbside collections and opting instead for 240 litre bin co-mingled collections.

ISS supplies, installs and maintains the full range of safety and lighting products including reversing radars, CCTV camera systems, Hard Disk Recording, warning beacons and LED lighting packages.

Something Old, Something New, Something Re-Manufactured...


Romsey-based Waste Management Company, Ace Liftaway recently increased its fleet of waste vehicles with a re-manufactured vehicle from Refuse Vehicle Solutions ltd (RVS). The vehicle, a 26 tonne RCV, is the company's largest to date and will pave the way for further expansion.

In a perfect example of how RVS works in harmony with each customer's individual requirements Ace provided a brand new DAF chassis to which RVS then fitted a re- manufactured phoenix 2 body and re-manufactured Beta 2 Trade bin lift.

Philip Liddell, Managing Director, Ace Liftaway said: "RVS came recommended and I can understand why. The vehicle is immaculate and the service has been superb. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back again when we need another vehicle."

Ace Liftaway has experienced continual growth since being established over 25 years ago with one mini truck and 8 mini skips. The company now has over 1500 skips on hire throughout South Hampshire and recycles and processes around 90% of all materials at its own waste recycling facility. Last year proved to be the company's best year yet and this year looks set to beat that record.

Philip Liddell added: "We look after our customers and we look after our staff. We invest in training and maintaining a high level of customer service."

A leading provider of both quality used and re-manufactured refuse vehicles, RVS specialises in revitalising second hand dust-carts, stripping them down and replacing or repairing worn and defective parts, to provide high quality 'as-new' vehicles that cost a fraction of the expense of a new vehicle. The company also offers a host of additional services including vehicle financing, low-loader delivery and an extensive spare parts service specialising in second-hand and reconditioned components.

RVS Launches 'Engine Stop Start' Technology to UK Market


Today RVS the UK's leading provider of re-manufactured and quality used refuse trucks and Effenco Hybrid Solutions of Montreal, Canada, announced that they are teaming up to deliver Effenco's patented 'Engine Stop Start' Hybrid system in the UK. RVS is the first distributor of Effenco's technology outside North America.

Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS said: "We were very impressed with the savings and environmental benefits offered by Effenco's Stop Start system, and we are delighted to represent the company in the UK. It can be fitted to most types of truck and offers average fuel savings of 25% per vehicle. The system is already in operation across North America and is proving to be a big success. We are excited to be bringing this state of the art technology to our customers."

Colin Ryan, Effenco's CEO, has strong praise for RVS: "RVS is a great business led by people who approach the market the way we do, with a customer-first approach and a focus on execution. While we are very pleased with our technology's performance, we need flawless service on the ground in the UK to meet the expectations of the market. RVS is one of the few companies in the UK who can get it done at the right time and price."

Benoit Lacroix, Effenco's Vice President of Marketing & Sales explains why the company is targeting the UK: "Based on our hybrid systems' fuel savings performance in North America, it made sense to offer it in the UK where the desired environmental benefits will come with higher returns due to higher fuel costs."

Refuse vehicles spend more than 50% of their operating time immobile yet 25% of total fuel consumption occurs during this time. Effenco's 'Engine Stop-Start' system works by automatically turning the engine off when the truck is immobile and supplying alternative power to auxiliary systems such as bin lifts. Hydraulic energy harvested from braking and topped up if needed with engine power is used to restart the engine. Furthermore, the transmission remains engaged while the engine is off so there is no delay in re-start and acceleration.

The carbon footprint of each truck is reduced by up to 28 tonnes per year.

The system can be installed to new vehicles or retrofitted to used vehicles and comprises 4 robust, hydraulic and electric assemblies mounted onto the chassis rails. It has been successfully installed on a wide range of vehicles including Mercedes and Volvo chassis' as well as Heil, McNeilus and other refuse bodies. It can be adapted to virtually any truck configuration.

RVS has already equipped several vehicles operated by private waste haulers in the UK with Effenco data loggers to record the specifics of local routes in order to simulate hybrid system operations. The results confirmed that Effenco's technology can generate fuel savings equivalent to, or better than, those of the North American vehicles.

Spencer added: "During trials our customers confirmed potential fuel savings, so much so that we have already received our first order. We are preparing a demonstration vehicle fitted with 'Engine Stop Start', which will be available soon so customers can see how well the system works for themselves."

A leading provider of both quality used and re-manufactured refuse vehicles, RVS specialises in revitalising second hand dust-carts, stripping them down and replacing or repairing worn and defective parts, to provide high quality 'as-new' vehicles that cost a fraction of the expense of a new vehicle. The company also offers a host of additional services including vehicle financing, low-loader delivery and an extensive spare parts service specialising in second-hand and reconditioned components.

Effenco brings reliable and cost effective energy efficiency solutions to heavy transportation equipment. The company's most important market remains refuse collection vehicles where it has built one of the world's most extensive databases of vehicle operations in partnership with North America's largest private and municipal fleets.

"Our competitive advantage comes from knowing refuse applications so well and having the technical capability of adapting designs to applications," said Ryan about his company.

Beside the waste collection industry, the company also offers solutions for terminal tractors used by ports and freight logistics companies.
