Protyre dips toe in Scottish water with Denton Tyre acquisition
Micheldever Tyre Services reports its acquisition of a “much respected family business.” Denton Tyre Centre, which operates two outlets in Carlisle and one in Dumfries and fits 100,000 tyres a year, has joined the company’s Protyre retail division. The Dumfries outlet becomes Protyre’s first in Scotland.
“Just over 18 months ago, we set ourselves ambitious growth targets to expand the network,” comments retail director Simon Hiorns. “The addition of Denton Tyre Centre brings the size of the Protyre network to 98 centres. This clearly demonstrates our ability to deliver on our drive for growth and the strength of the Protyre brand.
“The additional benefits from this deal, along with recent acquisitions in Penrith and Workington, means Protyre now has a business of significant scale in the North West of England, which will also deliver benefits to commercial and car fleet operators, as well as to Micheldever’s VMA customers,” adds Hiorns.
