New Infinity dealer partner programme
Recently RH Claydon decided that a new sales and distribution strategy should be adopted in the UK and Northern Ireland. markets and as such, the “Infinity Dealer Partner Programme” has been launched. According to group business development and purchasing manager, John Parker, the Infinity Dealer Partner Programme is a “new and exciting marketing concept for RH Claydon that offers many benefits to both the tyre distributor/service provider and end user in the light and heavy Truck tyre market.”
Under the new programme Infinity TBR dealer partners benefit from what is described as a full support package. This consists of having a dedicated account manager, point of sale materials, a distinctive pricing package including achievement rewards and also area exclusivity that enables the dealer partner to fully control the marketing of the Infinity TBR product in their assigned area. This is all backed up by the various activities that will take place in the coming months by RH Claydon and Infinity to generate and stimulate end user awareness and demand.
According to company representatives, Infinity is RH Claydon’s “premier” truck tyre brand and it is exclusively distributed by RH Claydon in the UK and Northern Ireland markets. Infinity is described as a “high quality brand [that] offers a wide-range of size, patterns and profiles for the many different applications required in short and long haul, tipper, trailer and of course bus/coach.
The Infinity approach is to provide tyre solutions across all tyre types, by use and by size and are manufactured to precise technical specification under a stringent quality control system in a QS9000 & ISO/TS16949:2002 factory. All tyres are said to meet major International Standards such as DOT (USA), ECE (European), SASO (Saudi Arabia/GCC), SON CAP (Nigeria), and are Reach compliant for Europe.
These truck tyres have also been developed through major investment in specialised technology, combining quality engineering to offer an exceptional product that maximises levels of comfort and longevity at excellent value. This is exemplified by the “flagship” F865 front steer, D925 drive and A902 trailer patterns, which are designed to offer a mixture of good grip, rolling resistance, wear and excellent cost per kilometre performance. In addition the brand has also received Bandag’s accreditation for its casing retreadability.
