We thank Mick and Ruby Claydon of RH Claydon Ltd for this opportunity and wish them every success for the future”.
RH Claydon executives stated their delight at the news with the following statement: “RH Claydon are delighted to have been given the opportunity to purchase the trade of Unity Tyre Co Ltd.
