C&H Hauliers Choose Bridgestone Tyres
Bridgestone UK has secured a tyre supply agreement with C&H Hauliers, part of the Charles Gee Group. C&H Hauliers will fit Firestone steer products to its fleet of more than 100 trucks, and the Bridgestone Qualitread retread on the drive axle and across the 250 trailers. The fleet will be serviced through the Truck Point network.
Greg Ward, commercial sales director, Bridgestone UK said: “We are delighted to have won the C&H Hauliers tyre contract. We have supplied Firestone tyres to this account indirectly through some of our Truck Point partners (Universal Tyres & Trinity Tyres) for many years, but the recent rapid expansion of the fleet puts the contract firmly within our “MegaFleet” environment. Universal Tyres & Trinity Tyres will continue to be a key service agent through the Bridgestone system.”
Steve Mercer, director at C&H Hauliers said: “We were very pleased with the tyre and service proposal put forward by Bridgestone and Truck Point. Our fleet has grown to such an extent that central reporting and management of our tyres across the country through a tyre manufacturer became essential. We chose Bridgestone UK and Truck Point because we get excellent mileage performance from the Firestone and Qualitread tyres, as well as reliable, proactive tyre service from the Truck Point network.”
