Traxx Tyres also arranged workshops that provided a focus on new tyre technology as well as current products, information on product development and marketing tools available to the sector.
UK tyre wholesaler Traxx Tyres has announced a new partnership with Apollo Vredestein. Traxx will initially stock and distribute Vredestein brand tyres, with the possibility of adding the Apollo tyre range in the future.
