Oak Tyres: 35 years of serving the trade
Oak Tyres, the independent distributor for tyres and tyre accessories based in the North West, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this month.
Delivering to the fast fit industry, Oak Tyres started trading in 1980 and over the course of three and a half decades has established itself as a leading, independently-run tyre wholesale distributor. Oak has built its reputation on carrying an unrivalled stock of all premium brands, whilst also becoming exclusive UK agents for leading high quality import brands such as Evergreen, Landsail and Headway.
Oak Tyres sets itself apart from many other wholesalers by distributing solely to the trade, rather than the consumer. As it has no retail presence, it doesn’t compete with its customers and focuses solely on delivering top quality service and value to its dealers.
The company has had a busy time of late with the launch of the private label tyre brand Davanti earlier this year and its expansion to purchase a twenty-five per cent stake of Group Tyre Wholesale. Alongside this, Oak has considerably upsized its headquarters to a larger base and warehousing complex in Haydock, Merseyside.
Peter Cross, Commercial Manager at Oak Tyres, commented; “We’re extremely proud of what the company has achieved in the last 35 years of business and are very thankful to the many customers that have worked with us, making this anniversary possible. We’re also thankful to our staff. Oak has consistently provided great service and expert insight into the tyre industry, and we couldn’t have achieved this without a dedicated team.
“We believe we’ve moved forward with the times and the industry; constantly striving to provide our dealers with the best possible opportunities and packages. We hope to continue in this vein going forward and celebrate many more anniversaries in the future.”
