Rotary, part of Vehicle Service Group (VSG) and Dover, has agreed a partnership with TEXA, a company involved in the design, development and production of diagnostic tools for the vehicle repair industry.
The companies say the partnership will enable Rotary to expand its automotive service offerings.
The partnership will position Rotary to offer collision and repair shops a new mobile Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) solution as well as fully automatic air conditioning (A/C) charging stations.
Ian Wendler, vice president and general manager for VSG – the Americas, says: “With this exciting partnership, we strengthen our commitment to ‘Serving the Shop’ with the most comprehensive set of solutions on the market.
“Rotary’s expanded ADAS line and the debut of new A/C equipment complements our vehicle lifts, wheel service, calibration and alignment products, and will make ADAS and A/C processes more seamless and cost-effective.”
The mobile ADAS solution offers repair service professionals a convenient and cost-efficient way to recalibrate cameras, radars, LiDARs and sensors when replacement is required and additional measures are necessary, such as replacing the windshield and bumper, repairing suspensions, aligning wheels, changing tires and replacing the engine control unit.
The new A/C machines will offer customers a quick and profitable way to recover, recycle and recharge R134a and R1234yf refrigerant gases.
Bruno Vianello, founder and president of the TEXA Group, says: “Our products are both highly technical and intuitive, enabling automotive mechanics and repair service personnel to achieve the greatest accuracy and precision.”
Dario Peruch, president and managing director of TEXA USA, says: “We’re excited to partner with such an iconic and forward-thinking brand as Rotary and look forward to supporting these game-changing new products.”
