Michelin says Flawborough Farms is “getting the best” from its next-generation Horsch sprayer after switching the original equipment fitments for a set of its AxioBib 2 tyres. The family-run business in Nottinghamshire took delivery of the UK’s first Horsch Leeb 8.300 PT last summer. The sprayer arrived as a prototype from Horsch’s headquarters in Germany fitted with a competitor’s rubber, but Flawborough Farms has since switched to Michelin VF 650/85 R42 AxioBib 2 183D tyres.
B.A Bush & Son (Bush Tyres) has congratulated Ken Nicholson on surpassing 55 years of continued service to the company.

Happy Birthday, Bush Tyres. Now 70 years old, Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire’s leading independent tyre specialist may well be the longest-established agricultural tyre supplier in the country. Set up as a bicycle tyre specialist in 1947, agricultural tyres joined the portfolio soon afterwards, and Bush Tyres never looked back. Now in its fourth generation, the family-run business is, as a Grouptyre member, strongly engaged in the distribution and retail sale of car tyres, and it is also equipped to meet the tyre and service requirements of commercial fleets. The agricultural tyre business remains nonetheless important to Bush Tyres, and here it is present in a variety of segments, including original equipment. Marketing director Tom Bush shares that the tyre company was particularly active in this last-mentioned field in 2017, and aims to continue its growth there during the course of this year.
Bush Tyres welcomes Simon Warren as its new OE2 manager. Bringing with him a wealth OE industry experience, he joins the Grouptyre member company this month and will work closely alongside Stuart Moor, head of OE2 sales.
