Pneumàtics JDF Joins BestDrive’s Network 

BestDriveContinental's network of tyre workshops has maintained its growth rate in Spain despite the difficulties arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. On this occasion, the brand has reinforced its presence in the province of Barcelona with the addition of Pneumátics JDF. 

The workshop located in the town of Granollers, has large facilities with a 900 m2 warehouse, plus a field of another 600 m2, which allows it to offer customer service in total comfort. There, they offer services for all types of vehicles, with specifically being specialists in truck tyre and repair services. 

Pneumátics JDF was founded in 2011 by three partners, Daniel Almansa and Juan and Francisco Codina, who left their jobs to start their own project. At that time they only had a mobile service, but no less than a year later they already had a warehouse to store tyre, before acquiring a second vehicle. In 2013, they moved to another warehouse in order to respond better to an ever-increasing pace of activity. 

Given the growth of the business, in 2014, they opened their first workshop in Lliça de Vall (Barcelona), where they remained until 2019, when they acquired the current workshop on Avenida Sant Julià, in Granollers. Over the course of 10 years, Pneumátics JDF has grown steadily, now having four intervention vehicles and one emergency vehicle at their disposal, whilst also acquiring the experience and knowledge to serve all types of vehicles. 

“We have had full confidence in Continental's products and services from the beginning. Continental has supported us in our purchasing and logistics to undertake this project. Knowing that we can count on a partner like BestDrive, whom we can trust and who give us the necessary peace of mind to do our job well is fundamental for Pneumátics JDF,” commented Daniel Almansa, one of the founding partners. 

For Gonzalo Giménez, CEO of BestDrive: “The introduction of Pneumátics JDF to BestDrive will be a boost for BestDrive in Barcelona. Thanks to its location, in a town as industrial as Granollers, we will be able to develop our network in this area that is of such high strategic interest. The extensive facilities of the workshop and the great experience of its professionals allow them to serve all types of vehicles and, given their situation, especially industrial vehicles and trucks. All this represents an important added value to our services in this region.
