Vredestein continues to gain UK emergency services’ trust

European premium tyre manufacturer, Apollo Vredestein continues to earn more ‘Blue Lights and Emergency services’ confidence and trust as it is selected as tyre supplier of choice by Lowland Rescue and Kent Central Ambulance services in the UK, which joins Medi 4 Ambulance Service in using Apollo Vredestein tyres on its fleets.

Vredestein’s award-winning Quatrac 5 all-season car tyres and Comtrac 2 all-season van tyres, already chosen by Medi 4’s fleet, as well as the newest winter tyre, Wintrac Pro, are now used by UK charity Lowland Rescue which has a fleet of 85 vehicles.

Kent Central Ambulance Service’s fleet has similar requirements: in 2018 it trialled both Vredestein Comtrac 2 All Season and the award-winning Apollo Altrust summer tyres. It has now adopted Apollo as the main brand, having been impressed with the tyres’ safety and performance. Vredestein Comtrac 2 All Season tyres have been selected for the services’ European repatriation vehicles.

“Our strategy, which has been in place for the last year or so, is to create partnerships with those fleets which provide emergency services across the UK, because Apollo Vredestein’s product range fulfils their need for highly reliable tyres in all circumstances,” commented Ricky Mitchell, Apollo Vredestein Fleet Manager. “It is a strategy which is paying off, as fleets are won over by our tyres’ performance in trials.”
