Transense Technologies plc has appointed Kevin Hennelly as Sales Director for it’s Translogik business unit. Hennelly brings more than 15 years of experience from the commercial vehicle fleet telematics industry with global telematics business Teletrac Navman and more recently he was responsible for delivering rapid growth at UK based fleet technology specialist Lightfoot over a 5 year period.

Translogik tyre inspection tools are used by the world’s leading tyre suppliers, service centres and vehicle fleet operators, to digitally capture safety critical tyre inspection data, and manage tyre inventory and installation.

Nigel Rogers, Executive Chairman of Transense Technologies plc said:

“Kevin brings a great track record of success in the commercial vehicle telematics industry. He has won and managed major accounts, and has existing strong relationships with blue-chip vehicle fleet operators.  It’s an exciting time for our business and we’re confident that Kevin will play a big part in our future growth.”

Kevin Hennelly said:

“Tyres are a huge costly line item within any fleet. Better management and data capture will improve compliance and have a positive impact on fuel consumption, or in the case of an EV, range. This not only helps to reduce costs but also reduces harmful emissions produced by the production and use of Tyres. From a safety point of view, there are hundreds of deaths or serious injuries on UK roads each year directly attributed to defective tyres. I am very happy to be bringing Translogik products to a wider market to help improve road safety and reduce fleet operating costs.“

With the fitment of tyre pressure monitoring systems to all trucks and trailers now required by law in Europe, and increased safety regulations for commercial vehicles throughout the world, Translogik is entering an exciting period for growth. Bringing new products and services to market is expected to increase the reach of its market leading TLGX tyre inspection range as well as deepening relationships with existing customers. Kevin’s recruitment is part of a larger overall expansion at the business which has seen it add 6 additional members of staff to bolster engineering, administration and marketing functions of the company’s businesses for 2024.
