Hankook Tyre UK has announced the appointment of a successor to David Thorp, its UK sales manager who will retire on 30 June 2019. Paul Emery, who has a wealth of industry expertise to draw upon, will take over as sales manager of the UK truck and bus tyre segment. Thorp will retire after a long career in the tyre industry, including more than thirteen years’ service at Hankook.
NR Evans, one of the UK’s largest temperature controlled distribution fleets, has renewed its tyre service agreement with Bridgestone. The tyre supplier said that its Total Tyre Care package played a critical role in the company’s success during a competitive tendering process.
