Construction companies are increasingly considering the environmental impact of their operations and this includes their machinery choices. Legislation has driven the development of clean engines – in the off-highway sector new machines must now be built with Stage V low emission engines. Of course, battery power is also now becoming more prominent as a power source for smaller plant and equipment. So, what about tyres?
While the company is best known for supplying and fitting specialist solid tyres, Tyre Boss also sources a wide range of off-highway tyre solution. This includes tyre fill which is said to be “a very popular option for many customers”.
Bridgend’s Tyre Boss has become the UK agent for Techking Tires. The Qingdao, China based tyre manufacturer is a specialist in OTR tyre segments, fitted to heavy machinery in a variety of applications. Its new UK agent has pressed on with ambitious growth and expansion plans in 2020. Its latest development follows the acquisition of two warehouses, a large tyre press and a successful ISO audit so far this year.
Glamorgan OTR tyre supplier Tyre Boss has invested in a 250 tonne static tyre press. The high capacity press, which is over 3m tall, can be used to press tyres from 5.00-8 solids to 24.00-35 solids. This means the company can handle the full range of pneumatic, solid and specialist tyres supplied by Tyre Boss for every make and size of off-highway machinery. The new tyre press is the latest investment for the Welsh company. It opened a second warehouse earlier in the year, having moved into new premises in 2019.
Glamorgan-based solid and speciality OTR tyre specialist Tyre Boss has opened a second warehouse, coming quickly after it moved into new premises in 2019. Located close to the company’s headquarters, which brought disparate operations under one roof, further growth has led the company to open the second unit more than doubling the size of the space occupied by Tyre Boss. The new warehouse is only 100m away from existing operations, located on the same industrial estate, and will mainly be used for stocking the variety of tyre types distributed by the company, including the most popular TY Cushion models particularly suited to the waste and recycling sector. Tyre pressing and stocking, and rim and wheel maintenance and servicing remain in the original facility, along with all administrative duties.
It is fair to say that the waste sector has been kept busy during the Covid-19 lockdown. And that means firms such as Jones Skip Hire have needed to keep rolling. Indeed, With employees designated as key workers, waste businesses up and down the UK have pulled out all the stops to process the nation’s waste. Volumes of domestic refuse have increased during this period too. Forced to stay home, we’re all clearing out, decluttering and generally throwing more away. That’s without mentioning the effects of the early panic buying. As a result, waste and recycling companies have upped the ante to keep on top of the job.
Tyre Boss Ltd, has confirmed it is exhibiting at the Plantworx Show for the first time and is looking forward to welcoming visitors to stand EB8. As well as supplying cushion solid tyres for waste and recycling applications, Tyre Boss has access to an extensive range of pneumatic OTR tyres for construction, earthmoving and industrial applications that don’t require a sold tyre solution. The company specialises in conversions for all types of machinery and equipment and supplies throughout the UK and Europe.
