Princebuild Choose Michelin


Construction and property maintenance specialist Princebuild is rolling out Michelin’s CrossClimate+ and Agilis CrossClimate tyres across its entire 180 cars and vans. The move will ensure its fleet benefits from traction all year round thanks to Michelin’s latest generation summer tyres offering full winter capability.

Property Maintenance Company Fits Michelin

The Peterborough-based company made the decision to switch after a meeting with Michelin showed the statistics and improved safety its CrossClimate range of tyres could offer.

The new tyres will be fitted to the fleet’s 60 Renault Mégane and Vauxhall Insignia cars and 120 Renault Trafic and Master vans, as wear dictates. Being summer tyres makes adopting the new policy simple and cost-effective, as the CrossClimate+ and Agilis CrossClimate tyres can be fitted in pairs on the same axle. This avoids the need to replace all four existing tyres at the same time, as necessary when moving from summer to winter fitments.

Jonathan Brown, Fleet and Facilities Executive Manager at Princebuild, says: "The safety of our drivers is paramount. We want to make sure they have every confidence in their vehicle no matter what the weather – these new Michelin tyres are proving the ideal solution."

Princebuild is a family-run business established in 1971 that operates in the construction industry providing maintenance, insurance and refurbishment services nationwide.
