Government Fleet Expo 2017
Excel Tire Gauge had a successful showing at the recent Government Fleet Expo held in San Antonio, TX on June 13th & 14th. The two-day show was a first for Excel, as they begin to broaden their sales efforts towards government entities nationwide.
“Traffic to the Excel trade show booth was steady throughout the show, and the show attendees seemed genuinely interested to see the live demonstrations that we were giving on our digital air gauge equipment” said Roger Audette, Director of Sales for Excel. Roger continued by saying “In addition to our in-shop air gauge that hooks into existing maintenance facility compressor systems, there was a great deal in interest by fleet managers to place our self-contained SC05 unit at their on-site fueling locations where police and other vehicles fill-up daily.”
Government budgets are tighter than ever, and fleets of all size have a tremendous opportunity to lower their operating costs by implementing a tire maintenance program that begins with simple monthly tire pressure checks on all of their vehicles. Not only does Excel’s digital tire gauge makes that process quick, simple and accurate, but helps to facilitate program acceptance by fleet drivers by providing one piece of equipment that calibrates the correct tire pressure automatically. By ensuring that the proper tire pressure is set on all vehicles, fleets will realize savings through; extended tire life, better fuel economy, and less susceptibility to tire failure due to road hazards and weather related accidents.
