Copadex is expanding its existing cooperation with Alliance to become an official distributor of the whole Alliance tyre portfolio in France as of 2021. The extension of the Alliance offer will make Copadex a full range distributor of Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT) – as Alliance Tire Group was recently renamed – in France. Copadex is also an official distributor of Galaxy tyres – another YOHT brand specializing in the industrial and construction segments. Copadex will take over its new full range role in the highly important French market with particular focus on agricultural segment and the premium tractor radial portfolio specifically. Copadex will also distribute Alliance tyres in other segments such as forestry and construction.
Although STARCO retained its aftermarket presence in the UK, in 2017 it ended its activities within this sector in a number of European markets, including France. The company is now returning to this particular market through a partnership with tyre wholesaler Copadex. From the start of 2020, a selection of STARCO’s tyre range will be available and easily accessible in the French aftermarket via Copadex’s network and e-shop.
