Apollo Tyres opens first truck tyre centre in Thailand
Apollo Tyres has extended its Apollo Truck Tyre Zone (ATTZ) fleet service concept to Thailand. The first ATTZ outlet, a collaboration between Apollo and local partner Ten Ten Auto Tyres has opened in Hat Yai District, Songkhla Province and is equipped to provide a range of services such as wheel alignment for trucks and cars, tyre changing and wheel balancing.
“Apollo Tyres is committed to providing the best products and services to our consumers,” comments Satish Sharma, president Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa at Apollo Tyres Ltd. “This integrated ATTZ centre brings together the strong partnership between Apollo Tyres and Ten Ten Auto Tyres, which has 30 years of extensive experience in truck services, and is well-known among truck owners in the southern region of the country.”
“We have seen the strong and steady growth potential in Hat Yai, which is a strategically important logistics area in the southern region of Thailand,” adds Shubhro Ghosh, group head of Apollo Tyres’ ASEAN, Middle East and Africa businesses. “The launch of ATTZ will help us cope with growth in commercial fleets and increasing demand in radial tyres, as our prices are more affordable, together with our quality products. We decided to engage with Ten Ten Auto Tyres, one of Apollo’s important partners in the south because of their expertise and professionalism in providing services, to launch Thailand’s first integrated ATTZ for truck tyre customers in the south. We are also planning to open more such outlets to serve fleet customers in the ASEAN region.”
Apollo Tyres has promoted radial commercial vehicle tyres to fleets in Thailand since 2013. Currently, 17 variants and models are available.
