Michelin Win Trentbarton Contract


Michelin’s latest tyre and wheel safety technology has helped secure a major new five-year deal with East Midlands bus operator Trentbarton.

Michelin Win New Bus Contract

The EffiTires contract will see Michelin supply, fit and manage tyres across Trentbarton’s 463-strong fleet, which operates more than 40 services throughout Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The bus company has returned to Michelin following three years fitting a competitor brand of tyres.

Michelin manufactures quality tyres and I know we will receive the same professional service we’ve always enjoyed from them in the past,” said Carl Yeaman, Director of Engineering, Trentbarton.

The agreement includes the installation of Michelin Wheel Safe across Trentbarton’s entire PSV fleet as well as a full tyre management policy – fitting and servicing Michelin New and Michelin Remix tyres across the company’s 210 double deckers, 138 medium buses, 95 small buses and 20 coaches.
