Industry Waste Solutions Provider - Waste Equipment Sales & Service (WESS) will integrate the lifesaving technology that features the Bend Sensor® into vehicles for its impressive customer base
DRAPER, Utah, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (FLXT) and HTK Safety today announced a strategic relationship with Waste Equipment Sales & Services (WESS) which will begin offering an integrated Anti-Rollaway System featuring the Bend Sensor® to customers in Q3 2017. Over the last 17 years, WESS has become one of the leading waste equipment and services companies catering exclusively to the waste industry, (private and municipal), across the Maryland, Delaware and Washington D.C. region.
The HTK Safety System is a fully patented, failsafe system which prevents truck rollaways caused by failure to set the parking and/or work brake systems. Unfortunately, rollaways are a pervasive problem industry wide. WESS has always been the "go to" solution provider in their region for high quality waste equipment solutions, and boasts of an impressive customer base including large truck fleet owners such as Baltimore City Department of Public Works and Ocean City Public Works Department.
According to WESS CEO, Mike Adcock, "The HTK Safety solution adds an element of safety our industry has been needing for a long, long time. Eliminating rollaways reduces significant risk for the fleet owner and dramatically reduces the possibilities of property damage and/or personal injury. We believe the HTK System will deliver tremendous value to our customers and continue to set us apart as innovative thought leaders and solution providers in our industry."
In addition to sales of custom, integrated Bend Sensors®, Flexpoint provides overall sales, marketing and system (order) fulfillment services to HTK. According to Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint VP – Sales & Marketing, "We are all pleased to add WESS as a distributor and service provider. The WESS reputation for quality craftsmanship and service delivery is unparalleled. We are very proud to be able to work with the team at WESS in bringing the HTK solution to their customers. Their focus on customer service and safety is exactly what we are all about."
Possessing a tremendous customer service company culture and "safety first" orientation, WESS is a model for the type of partners HTK will continue to seek out and add to their growing distributor base. HTK and Flexpoint reiterate that additional new strategic relationships are being formalized. In the future, the company anticipates finalizing contracts with various suppliers across North America including OEM's and Parts & Service providers that will add the HTK Safety System to their solution portfolios.
