DRB® collaborates with Cross Insurance Agency

AKRON, Ohio — The partnership aims to enhance carwash safety.

AKRON, Ohio — DRB® and Cross Insurance announced in a press release a collaborative effort to help carwash operators reduce the risk of in-tunnel vehicle collisions.

Under the effort, Cross Insurance will offer safety credits to qualified customers who employ DRB’s NoPileups™ full-tunnel management system in their carwash tunnels.

NoPileups uses patented video and advanced computer technology to prevent in-tunnel collisions.

Any time a collision threat is detected by NoPileups in the tunnel, the system stops the conveyor and takes a 15-20 second video so the operator can identify and fix the cause of the issue.

The system was made available to the carwash industry in 2016.

“In just a few short years, NoPileups has become a proven technology and a trusted partner to carwash operators across the United States,” said Alex Mereness, director of NoPileups and tunnel strategic product management for DRB. “We take great pride in making tunnels safer, increasing operational efficiency and reducing stress.”

Working with Cross to help operators obtain safety credits takes that to the next level, Mereness said.

DRB consistently seeks industry partners to bring additional value to customers, and this collaborative effort helps them do that.

“We’re excited to work with Cross Insurance because they recognize NoPileups’ unique ability to mitigate risk and liability inside a carwash tunnel,” Mereness said. “Cross Insurance and their team are industry veterans who have taken the time to understand the carwash industry and identify solutions to everyday problems to maximize value. I think it speaks volumes that they see an opportunity to unlock another solution to reduce costs and risks to carwash operators.”

“At Cross, we are here to protect your team for tomorrow,” Cross Insurance President Chris Sharpe said. “We’re excited to work with DRB, another company focused on protecting the investments of business owners.”
