Tiresur Announces its Sixth Warehouse on the Iberian Peninsula
Tiresur has redoubled its commitment to national distribution with the construction of its new regulatory warehouse in the north of Spain. The project, the most ambitious of those undertaken by the Granada-based distributor to date, is projected on a 28,000 m2 plot in the Villanlonquéjar industrial estate in Burgos.
This will consist of more than 20,000 square meters of warehouse, will be equipped with the latest storage and distribution technologies and will have a capacity of more than 450,000 multi-segment tyres.
Antonio Mañas, president of the company, states that; "After the opening of our facilities in Getafe, five years ago, the company has continued its international expansion plan with strong investments in Portugal, where we opened a new warehouse last year, 2021, and in Brazil, where this past year we have expanded our locations, currently having 11 logistics centres.” He adds that; "We redoubled our commitment to the tyre distribution market, and the new warehouse in Burgos positions us geographically, at the level of service and at the level of availability and proximity to our customers as the best option".
This new macro project is added to the existing logistics centres in Spain (Granada, Getafe, Barcelona and Santiago de Compostela) and, together with the Lisbon warehouse, adds a total storage area of more than 45,000 square meters and a total volume of available stock of more than 750,000 tyres across all segments.
The project will be carried out in two phases, and the works will begin in the coming weeks with the first module of 10,000 square metres at a height of 16 metres and 12 loading docks, which will be fully operational in the first quarter of 2024.
Paco García, general director of the distributor, concludes that; "Tiresur's distribution model, with the development of its exclusive brands, the constant updating of its portfolio, technological development and our commitment to offering exceptional customer service, has been always our hallmark and have revealed themselves as a model of success in the market. We are strongly committed to our markets, and, in Burgos, we will have the opportunity to continue improving operationally and commercially, which will allow us to reorganise distribution at the Iberian and European level as a basis for growth for the coming years”.
Founded in 1934 in Granada, where its headquarters are located, Tiresur is also present in Portugal, Brazil and Panama.
