FOLLOWING the news that Glamorgan-based OTR tyre supplier, Tyre Boss, has invested in a second warehouse, the company has now taken delivery of a brand-new purpose built 250 tonne static tyre press.
The high capacity press, which measures over 3m tall, can be used to press tyres from 5.00-8 solids up to 24.00-35 solids which means the company can handle the full range of pneumatic, solid and specialist tyres supplied by Tyre Boss for every make and size of off-highway machinery.
The press will not only be used for the company’s service exchange scheme but for brand new tyre and wheel assemblies. With huge stocks of new and used rims and brand-new tyres in stock at all times, the press will enable Tyre Boss to improve the already market-leading delivery times. This is particularly helpful at the moment with pressurised lead times due to increased demand from waste and recycling sites who are working round the clock to process domestic waste whilst the UK is confined to home.
Their large press also enables them to press for companies that need to outsource their pressing requirements. Wayne and Victoria Collins own the business and are working hard to ensure the nation’s waste machinery is supplied with damage resistant, puncture-free tyres to maximise productivity on site.
“We are responding to urgent calls for tyres and the new press has been a real godsend,” said Wayne. “We are working alone in the workshop and are following all the hygiene protocols, including at the point of delivery on site.
“We have already pressed, delivered and fitted dozens of tyres since the press was commissioned, so the decision to invest in this piece of kit – which was made prior to the emergence of Covid 19 – seems to be paying off.”
The tyre press is another example of the couple investing back in the business to ensure seamless customer service. Having recently opened a second warehouse and re-gained ISO 9002 Tyre Boss will be in fine shape to service more customers as the market returns to normal.
