December 16, 2008

Transportation wheel safety from DISC-LOCK International will benefit additional countries in Asia, Africa and South America.

CULVER CITY, Calif., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ DISC-LOCK International, a California based company specializing in the manufacture and distribution of safe and secure fastening systems, including the Safety Wheel Nut, today announced a substantial expansion of their international distributor network.

DISC-LOCK product distribution will be handled by Fasweld, Inc. in South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam. V.M.R. Engineering Services PVT. LTD. will supply India, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, and Bangladesh. Cie de Colombia S.A. will fulfill Colombia and Venezuela.

Wheel separations from trucks, trailers and buses have become a serious problem worldwide, causing accidents and fatalities. “The DISC-LOCK Safety Wheel Nut is now recognized as the most important innovation in wheel nut technology since the 1930′s,” said Alistair McKinlay, Chairman of DISC-LOCK International. “With our distributor network augmentation, we will increase wheel safety in the respective countries. For commercial vehicles with standard wheel nuts installed, it is not a case of if the wheel nut will come off, but when.”

A study conducted by National Safety Transportation Board (NTSB) cites loose wheel nuts as one of the leading causes of wheel separations on medium and heavy vehicles. The DISC-LOCK Safety Wheel Nut benefits in eliminating wheel separation, when installed correctly, are recognized by the U.S. Military and other agencies worldwide. “We envision a future in which wheel loss will be a concern of the past by the combination of proper maintenance and recognition that our DISC-LOCK Safety Wheel Nut is the leading safety product in terms of ensuring wheels remain on their axles,” said Greg White, Vice President of DISC-LOCK International.
