Adding Value…Harvie Style
The Harvie name has been associated with tyre repair materials and wheels service accessories for the past four decades, during which time the company has demonstrated rapid response to continuous tyre and rim change processes and the ensuing demands for high quality, technically efficient products plus customer service support within the UK market.
Managing director, Terry Brooks, points out that the company has experienced a 35 per cent sales revenue growth during 2005 along with a high degree of customer satisfaction. The company now presents a product portfolio backed by impressive service levels to both existing loyal customers and prospective customers alike.
Terry adds: “We shall continue to adopt an aggressive growth strategy in all market sectors during 2006 with particular emphasis towards continuous self critique in order to improve even further in levels of ultimate customer satisfaction.”
In October 2004, Harvie successfully secured the exclusive agency for the UK market of the Premacare branded range of tyre repair materials, augmented by a fully comprehensive range of bead lubricants, chemicals, valves and valve hardware, lead free balance weights, air service tools and accessories, buffing mediums, hand tools and safety products. The Premacare programme is designed to take care of tyre repair and wheel service supply requirements and is an impressive programme that permits the tyre professional to focus on revenue generating activities and spend less time on product supply management and training.
Prema Products Inc (Prema) was founded in the United States in 2003 in order to serve the global tyre repair industry with state-of-the-art soft gum tyre repair systems following demands for higher quality, leading edge technology in the ‘soft-gum’ market. The result was PremaTack tyre repair system, a complex in-house process which offers exclusive formulations and specifications in Prema Products.
