Philip Wylie takes sole ownership of Pro-Align

UK leading supplier of wheel servicing equipment Pro-Align is now under the sole ownership of Philip Wylie after the retirement of two of its founding directors.

Husband and wife Paul and Kathryn Beaurain founded Pro-Align in 1990 alongside Wylie, who will continue as the company’s sole owner.

He said: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Paul and Kathryn for the great work they have carried out over the last 30 or so years. Anyone who knows them will testify to their passion and unwavering commitment to the Hunter brand and wheel alignment in general here in the UK. I am proud of what we have built together and am incredibly excited about the next phase in the company’s growth.”

Pro-Align is the exclusive UK distributor for Hunter-branded equipment in the UK. As well as being approved and used by most major vehicle manufacturers either in their dealerships or technical facilities, the Hunter equipment is also widely used within national repair chains, bodyshops, independent and commercial vehicle workshops.

Wylie said: “Looking ahead, these are incredibly exciting times for all of us at Pro-Align. We will continue to evolve our relationship with Hunter while also developing our structure, expanding our product range and investing in products and services that ensures Pro-Align remains the number one choice of workshops across the UK.”

Pro-Align will continue to be managed operationally by CEO Clive Seabrook.
