Woodway signs partnership with Trakm8

Woodway Engineering has signed a partnership agreement with Trakm8.

The deal will see Woodway act as a distributor of Trakm8’s RH600 vehicle camera to the blue light sector.

Ray Skelhon, chairman of Woodway Engineering, said, ‘We are experiencing growing customer demand for a product that combines the best elements of telematics with a high-quality vehicle camera. The RH600 actually exceeds our expectations and we think it will be a great addition to our customers’ fleets, bringing them myriad safety and operational benefits.’

The partnership brings together two west Midlands-based manufacturers. Launched last year to selected fleets including Iceland Foods and Calor Gas, the RH600 is in full production at Trakm8’s UK manufacturing facility in Coleshill. Located in nearby Coventry, Woodway Engineering is a supplier of high-quality automotive emergency warning systems, including lights, beacons and sirens.

Chris Horbowyj, channel sales director for Trakm8, said, ‘Woodway is one of the best-known suppliers to the emergency services and has a hard-won reputation for providing high-quality products. We believe that there is a huge opportunity for telematics cameras in this space and are delighted to be working with such a prestigious partner to develop it.’
