The current industry landscape, marked by European laws mandating tyre pressure monitoring systems in trucks and trailers, along with stringent safety regulations for commercial vehicles globally, presents an opportune moment for Translogik's expansion. The company aims to introduce new products and services to augment the reach of its market-leading TLGX tyre inspection range while strengthening relationships with existing customers.
