Starco GB On Track With Industrial Tyres
It has been just over a year since Starco GB added the industrial tyre segment to its existing product range, and although market conditions have been tough, the company reports that it has achieved “substantial growth” in this area. As the UK and Ireland distributor for the Globe Star product, Starco stocks a wide range of resilient solids and press on band tyres, both standard and non-marking easyfit. The solids are complemented with a full range of Kenda Kinetics pneumatic forklift tyres and an even wider range of other industrial, agricultural and skid steer sizes due to the recent addition of the Deestone range of product.
Starco’s range of solid and pneumatic tyres cover baggage trolleys and tow tug tyres; forklift trucks from 400×8 to 1200×20 in solids, and up to and including 1400×24 in pneumatics. These larger sizes have applications that include port and dockside machines. Investment in a heavy duty solid tyre press and temperature controlled puncture proof tyre fill system means that Starco can offer a complete fitting service to their customers and a one stop shop for puncture proof pneumatics.
At the smaller end of the scale Starco offers the Starco Flex 100 per cent puncture proof tyres. Made from a microcellular polyurethane material, Starco Flex tyres are a “fit it and forget it” option. Benefits include, much lighter in weight than tyre fill, no reduction in ride quality and can last up to four times longer than the equivalent pneumatic tyre. Starco have also recently launched the new “Tube Station” concept, which will give customers access to a full range of tubes from 3” to 48” available from stock.
