Pro-Align exhibit at Auto Trade Expo

Auto Trade Expo

L-R: Jamie Gilmartin, Jamie Taylor, Colin Graham, Philip Wylie and Shane McGinty


On the weekend of 20th-21st October 2018, some of the Pro-Align team were in Ireland for the Auto Trade Expo 2018

Auto Trade Expo took place at the Citywest Exhibition Centre on the outskirts of Dublin, where over 185 stands represented close to 900 Automotive brands. 

Our team in Dublin consisted of Install Team member Jamie Gilmartin, Sales Executives Shane McGinty and Colin Graham, Sales Director, Jamie Taylor and Joint MD, Philip Wylie. Plenty of people were on hand to help set up, talk to new and old contacts and dismantle the stand. They grabbed visitors’ attention with the very latest Hunter equipment, giving live demonstrations and there were certainly a large number of visitors that kept coming in, keeping our team very busy over the whole weekend. 

The equipment used for demonstrations included the Road Force Elite Wheel Balancer, with its unique functions. Other demonstrations included the TC-Line Tyre Changer, the easi i-heat and our ‘King of Alignment’ Elite TD Imaging Aligner, which proved popular amongst visitors. 

Here are some of our top highlights: 



Get a Grip

You know it isn’t until you see it for yourself or have a go, do you truly appreciate how good product components are.  The new Hunter wheel clamp display stand certainly attracted a lot of attention for this reason.

The main visitor feedback was how good the quality and robustness of all the clamps were, plus the ability to compare the speed and ease of fit of each type of aligner wheel aligner clamp.  However, it was QuickGrip TD and HQ adapters which that got the resounding vote for ease of use and robustness. 


Visionary diagnostic wheel balancing

The NEW Road Force Elite (RFE) diagnostic balancer, made its maiden appearance at Auto Trade Expo.  Showing its strength and power at solving both tyre and wheel vibration and tyre pull solving capability, plus the new Vision, system meant that dataset arms are now a distant memory!  The Hunter patented ‘non-repeatable’ laser pattern scans and measures the rim and wheel in an instant taking wheel dimensions, rim profiles and optimising weight application solutions. 

Imaging alignment choice is yours

How often can you have the choice of two imaging aligners from the same manufacturer?  Especially when that manufacturer is Hunter, renowned for its alignment innovation, technology, reliability and quality build. On the stand, we had both the ‘Premium’ Elite TD and the ‘Essential’  PA200 ACE option – both capable of delivering outstanding alignment service and profitability.

If budgetary restraints limit you to the PA200 ACE, then you can be reassured, that with Pro-Align’s unique 24 Month Upgrade Guarantee, you can upgrade to the Elite TD for a fixed price. For more information, speak to Shane McGinty or Colin Graham to find out more.



“The show was a great success with a steady flow of interested customers who came to visit our stand” commented Philip Wylie, Joint Managing Director at Pro-Align. 

“We look forward to following up on the large number of enquiries we received and securing a significant number of sales from the event” commented Jamie Taylor, Sales Director at Pro-Align. “It was a very well attended show, with some usual suspects visiting the stand and more importantly, a good selection of new potential customers.  Interest in all equipment was high particularly the Road Force Elite & Elite TD wheel aligner.”
