Press Release –

Brooksville, FL – ESCO (Equipment Supply Company) proudly announces the finalizing of the agreement to exclusively manufacture and distribute the Ochoa Roadrunner line of tire mounting and demounting tools and accessories for the tire service equipment market. This agreement gives ESCO full and acting interest in the market for such tools as the “Universal Demount Tool”, “Tyr-X Demounting System”, “Pneumatic Bead Breaker” and many other patented innovations by Sandy and Justin Ochoa of Ochoa Roadrunner Products Inc.

Sandy Ochoa, Ochoa Roadrunner Products Inc., has been involved in innovating the tire/wheel market since the late 1980’s, with the invention of the Cheetah tire bead seating tank. Since then, Sandy, along with Justin Ochoa, have introduced well over sixteen different patents that are focused around the tire/wheel and aid in solving problems around the wheel that have always been problematic for most tire service professionals. ESCO, as a leading force in the tire/wheel service equipment market for well over thirty-years, became the clear choice for this relationship in bringing quality, safe, and efficient tools to the market. This relationship began back in late 2009 and has continued to grow since.

“We chose ESCO back in 2010 to launch our line of tire tools because their line of products fit in with ours so well”, says Felicity Ochoa/Lueras, Sales Manager at Ochoa Roadrunner Products Inc. “[The] whole line works in conjunction with each other to accomplish making the worst tire and wheel combinations easier to change as well as safer.”

ESCO officially released the Pneu-tek Line as part of the ESCO offering back in late 2010. At the time, people didn’t really know what to make of a line of fully pneumatic tire demounting tools.

“We felt that these tools were and still are going to be the future of tire demounting and mounting. To be able to use technologies that make the job faster, easier, and safer is what we stand for as an organization. These tools, as well as many other products in the ESCO line, provide solutions for everyday problems in the tire/wheel market…”, Christopher Manfre, ESCO Director of Marketing.

“We are very excited to provide these tools to the market and sustain the demand that we have grown to have over the past year…” Steve Dyer, President of ESCO. “We feel our longevity in the tire/wheel service equipment market, adds additional value and credibility that our customers worldwide have trusted in since the mid-1980’s.”

ESCO anticipates the completion of a full relaunch of the entire Pneu-Tek line by the end of the first quarter in 2018 creating new packaging, marketing materials/educational videos, and more. To keep up-to-date with ESCO and more information about these tools and equipment call 1-800-352-9852 or visit and type in “Pneu-Tek” to see all of the tools in the line.
