Hiregate Vehicle Rental has appointed ATS Euromaster to look after its tyres as it steps up its pace of growth.
The company, which has set its sights on growing its fleet to more than 3,000 vans by the end of 2012, sought a tyre service provider with commercial vehicle expertise and a national branch network to provide comprehensive support to customers.
Nick Skillman, commercial director at the expanding 1,500 vehicle firm, said: “We started off using local independent tyre dealers, but as we have grown, so has our need to partner with a national service provider and to purchase and manage tyres more effectively.
“We looked at a number of options and found ATS Euromaster could meet our requirements head on. It has the light commercial vehicle expertise and network coverage to grow with us, plus its reputation in the industry is a selling point with new customers.”
