Caledonian Tyres, based in Paisley, has put the finishing touches to an extensive refurbishment to position itself as one of the most advanced retread tyre centres in the country, featuring improved factory facilities, refurbished offices, improved equipment and an eye-catching rebrand of the entire premises.
Bridgestone owns Bandag, which helped reopen the Greenhill Road depot that counts McConechy’s, Auchinlea Tyres and Redpath Tyres as valued customers. As part of its relationship with Bandag, Caledonian receives Bridgestone premium casings for their cold-cure products, which are manufactured on-site.
Bridgestone’s Bandag franchise manager Graham Hooper said: “We are really excited on behalf of Robert and his team at Caledonian. Scotland represents a good growth opportunity for us all. It is a large territory and home to some of the UK’s most prestigious fleets. These fleets recognise the excellent performance and environmental value offered by Bandag and if the product continues to perform, then they will keep coming back to Bandag.”
A central theme behind Caledonian’s retread offering will be ‘The Bandag Contract of Trust’. This guarantee aims to reassure fleets that Bandag retreads are a safe and reliable alternative to a new set of tyres, as well as a solution for reducing fleets’ tyre related costs per kilometer.
