Beleaguered wholesale and tyre services company Kings Road Tyres is now in administration, with KPMG appointed joint administrators. The administration comes at the end of nearly a decade of turbulence for the company, which is one of the UK’s oldest tyre wholesale operations, having been incorporated in 1959.
The Bandvulc Group has announced the appointment of TyreWork to its Key Partner Network. With more than 40 years’ experience in the truck tyre business, Kings Road Tyres Group company, TyreWork has provided its services to Bandvulc for the last decade, handling callouts comprehensively in addition to its professional tyre support for Bandvulc’s portfolio of clients. Bandvulc said making TyreWork a Key Partner strengthens the companies’ association.
TyreWORK has become the first commercial vehicle and tyre management service provider to go live with the new UniSerV platform from CAM. Extended with e-jobsheet, CAM says the platform features improved “operational agility”, and increased “administrative efficiency in data processing from the field.”
CAM has scheduled the second UniSerV User Group (UUG) meeting for April, coinciding with The CV Show at the Birmingham NEC. Chaired by Anne Sherwood, group business support manager of Tructyre Fleet Management, CAM says UUG² will continue to discuss the benefits of e-jobsheet, CAM’s open-access mobile data platform for digital tablet technology in the truck, bus and van service arena.
CAM has hosted the inaugural UniSerV User Group (UUG) meeting, chaired by Anne Sherwood, business support manager of Tructyre Fleet Management. The event took place ahead of the NTDA dinner on Wednesday, 8 October 2014 at Manchester’s Hilton Deansgate. The software provider discussed the latest release of the software with some of its leading customers, using the meeting to identify and plan future developments to benefit the commercial tyre sector.
