So let's get this straight

Ayce Systems offers alloy straightening solution

Published:  25 June, 2010

It looks like a horrible torture device but the latest product to roll out of Ayce Systems' headquarters is an alloy wheel-straightening machine. The number of scuffed and damaged alloys on the roads shows that wheels take a pounding on a daily basis (not helped by some people's inability to park without hitting the kerb). This product aims to correct the most severe cases of damage.

Paul Leather, Ayce's sales and marketing manager, said: "We've been looking at expanding our product portfolio for the alloy wheel refurbishment market for some time and after extensive research chose the K-MAK machines. We have been impressed with the quality of the machines and how simple they are to operate. There's no doubt the need for these machines has been highlighted by the appalling state of our roads following the dreadful winter weather. Deep potholes have led to thousands of wheels being damaged." Full training is provided.
