Tructyre Renews its Fleet
Tructyre, part of the Michelin Group and ATS Euyromaster family, is the only national, single-owned commercial tyre management company that fully operates across the country
New Service Vans for Tructyre
Tructyre provides specialist tyre services to Britain’s trucks, trailers, buses and coaches.
As part of a programme of continuing investment, and to meet ongoing demand, Tructyre will be inducting 80 new truck service vans to their fleet.
Each in bright yellow livery, the new Mercedes Sprinters will support Tructyre’s HGV and PSV tyre technicians to de-risk the fleets of truck, bus, and coach operators in Great Britain.
Scott Matthews, Tructyre’s Head of Fleet said; “In common with other firms, it’s been a real challenge to source the new vehicles; our experience with Bell Truck and Van in Newcastle and Onboard Power in Wakefield was seamless. Bell Truck and Van will supply the first 23 Mercedes vans to our fleet imminently.”
As a 100% mobile tyre service provider, Tructyre operates more than 350 commercial tyre fitting vans, and these new vehicles will soon be distributed across the country.
Scott added, “Our fleet of older blue vans will be steadily withdrawn from service as the fleet transitions.”
