Vehicle Service Group Launches Two New Products to Further Expand EMEA Portfolio

25 April 2024

Vehicle Service Group  part of Dover and one of the world's leading automotive equipment companies, today announced the launch of two new products for the vehicle maintenance and repair industry in the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region. The Kendo.Evo leverless tire changer by Rotary and A/C charging stations by Ravaglioli and Rotary are designed to offer new business opportunities for vehicle service providers.

The addition of the Kendo.Evo to the Kendo tire changer range is a direct result of an in-depth evaluation of the dynamics and challenges that arise in vehicle service shops, with the aim of identifying a solution that can better meet the demands of a broad range of operators.

Kendo.Evo's innovative, state-of-the-art design satisfies and anticipates the needs of vehicle service shops with its rounded lines as well as a newly developed storage area that can be modulated as desired. The frame, without any adjustment, allows a wide range of rims (from 12" to 30"), while the patented non-scratch mounting head and extra grip plate simplify essential operations on the wheel.

Yucon by Ravaglioli and Glaxier by Rotary provide a smart solution for vehicle air conditioning system maintenance. These innovative A/C charging stations work with both the R134a and R1234yf refrigerant gases and are compatible with the latest R456A and R444A gases.* Created for ease of use, Yucon and Glaxier have been optimized for advanced connectivity with devices such as printers and smartphones. They are accessible through the DIGITiQ AirCon mobile application, enabling operators to monitor activity from anywhere in the service shop.

"We are proud to introduce two new products to the Ravaglioli and Rotary portfolio that enrich our workshop offering," stated Marco Okeny Samorani, Group Product Manager of Tire Service & Trade Marketing. "The A/C charging stations are a novelty for our brands, designed to create new business opportunities for our distributors, and the Kendo.Evo leverless tire changer is an excellent example of the innovation and continuous improvement we apply to our best-selling product range."

*The changing of refrigerant gases from one configuration to another is possible through the use of an optional retrofit kit.
