Ford Rapid Fit centres are to join the FTM fast-fit fleet tyre network following a successful pilot programme.
FTM managing director Mike Wise said the move would help to boost business levels by offering fleet customers a one-stop shop where vehicles could be serviced and tyres replaced.
“Ford Rapid Fit will enhance our fleet offer, improve business volumes and strengthen FTM's position as the independent service provider,” he said.
“Discussions with customers indicate that they recognise the one-stop shop opportunity saves valuable downtime by removing the need to shop around.”
A pilot scheme in Nottingham found that between 20 and 30% of vehicles brought in for servicing required new tyres. Mr Wise said the new arrangement could double FTM's turnover.
