Fagan & Whalley chooses Hankook as tyre supplier
Complete road haulage specialist Fagan & Whalley has selected Hankook Tyre UK to supply tyres for its 164-strong fleet of Scania trucks and 342 trailers. The tyre maker shares that the Lancashire-based haulier chose Hankook after being offered a “complete tyre solution coupled with an unrivalled service and support package.” The Hankook SmartFlex AH31 will be fitted to all steer and lift axles in the Fagan & Whalley fleet, the SmartFlex DH31 fitment to all drive axles and the TH22 for all trailer fitments.
In addition, Fagan & Whalley now operate an all-new Hankook tyre policy with a focus on reducing tyre costs across the fleet. A dedicated tyre management programme ensures the servicing dealers are proactive in providing a comprehensive tyre management service in line with the service level agreement, and regular review meetings enhance the proactive working relationship between the two companies.
“We are delighted to have been chosen by Fagan & Whalley as the sole provider to the company’s truck fleet,” says Roy Yeomans, key account manager at Hankook Tyre UK Ltd. “As a highly-regarded established complete road haulage specialist, Fagan & Whalley is used to partnering with respected and reliable suppliers and we are looking forward to delivering an exceptional service, ensuring the Hankook fitment achieves its full life potential, whilst delivering reduced costs to Fagan & Whalley.”
Established in 1927 with a horse and cart employed on small deliveries around local villages, six generations have built up Fagan & Whalley into a modern logistics provider. “Fagan & Whalley are proud of their heritage, and build relationships based on our core values,” comments Adam Burgess, fleet engineer at Fagan & Whalley. “It is these common goals Hankook Tyre and Fagan & Whalley both share, which bodes well for a positive future.”
