Uniroyal appoints Rathcormac Tyres as exclusive truck tyre distributor

Uniroyal truck tyres are now available across the Republic of Ireland following the apointment of Rathcormac Tyres as an exclusive distributor.

Long-established distribution company Rathcormac Tyres will now be responsible for wholesale distribution of all Uniroyal commercial vehicle tyre products across the Republic of Ireland, via its distribution centre just outside Cork.

The company, which also distributes Continental branded tyres, was selected for its extensive coverage across the country, and its effective and reliable delivery service.

Uniroyal, a brand of Continental, benefits from premium truck tyre technology. Over many years, Uniroyal has developed a reputation for performance and safety, whatever the weather, introducing a new generation of tyres in 2016. These new tyres meet the modern day needs of transport companies and provide consistent performance and safety for regional applications and long-distance routes. The new steer axle FH 40, drive axle DH 40 and trailer axle TH 40 tyres offer increased mileage, better wet performance and reduced rolling resistance over predecessors.

Duncan Platt, General Sales Manager UK & ROI, commented: “As Uniroyal’s latest generation of tyres becomes fully available across the ROI, it is key that the brand is fully supported by a robust distribution network, with great delivery infrastructure in place.  Rathcormac offers customers this reliable support and we look forward to growing our brand across the country thanks to their help.”

Pat Whelan at Rathcormac Tyres, said: “We are looking forward to working with Uniroyal over the coming years.   Securing Uniroyal’s backing for our wholesale business is a key development in our business.  Uniroyal is an important brand that we can offer at great value. Our customers can now benefit from both our expertise and Uniroyal’s wealth of technical support.”
