Bus USB Charging Units

Hayakawa, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of wire and cabling solutions, has supplied the wire harnesses used in the USB charging points installed into the revolutionary and next generation bus and coach seats currently being developed by Isringhausen.

Many bus and tour operators across the UK are investing in technological advancements to meet the growing demand from customers wanting on-board power to their mobile phones and devices. On-board USB charging points and free WiFi will become more common place in UK cities, as operators to continue to upgrade their fleets.

Isringhausen has been supplying ISRI® driver seats to a vast number of vehicle manufacturers for decades. They are one of the world’s most trusted suppliers and operate the highest standards of quality and performance.

Having worked within the supply chain of the transportation sector for some years, Hayakawa was able to supply the high quality wire harnesses, designed to a specification outlined by Isringhausen. The components were developed in-house at Hayakawa’s manufacturing facility in North Wales.

Commenting on this latest development, managing director Phill Harry, said: “We have been collaborating with Isringhausen for some time and we enjoy delivering a highly responsive and reliable service for this global blue-chip organisation. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace with consumers requiring constant connectivity to their devices, and we are proud to be working as a key supply chain partner at the forefront of these exciting developments.”
