Deep into its second decade of UK development, the Point S Tyre and Autocare independent tyre dealer ad car maintenance network is establishing its offer to the fleet market, using the 2023 edition of the Commercial Vehicle Show to present and demonstrate its programme for fleets, including a new online management system. Point S was also present at the show in 2022, using its stand at the Birmingham NEC hosted event to introduce the brand to UK fleets at the commercial market’s most prominent national platform. It also demonstrated its improved offer to truck fleets; Point S exhibited alongside truck tyre distribution partner, International Tyres, showcasing the Fortune truck tyre range and Point S’s own brand of van and car fitments, produced by a leading tyre manufacturer from Germany. Fortune is a brand of rapidly developing Asian tyre manufacturer Prinx Chengshan, produced in Thailand and thereby avoiding current tariffs placed on truck tyres produced in China, features a casing warranty designed to extend the useful life of every Fortune tyre. With these foundations laid, Point S’s UK network swelling to more than 300 members and Tony Valentine installed as the company’s UK fleet manager, the company is now poised to offer, in its own words, a “competitive and cost-effective solution.” Tyres & Accessories visited the company’s stand in Birmingham to discuss the move into the fleet market.
Point S Tyre & Autocare is exhibiting at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show. Visitors to stand 5F80 will be able to meet members of the Point S team and find out more about the network’s fleet programme, exclusive online fleet management system and gain a first glimpse of the new online system, with demonstrations available on request.
