Kumho assists UK tyre centre in going green

Alltyres Trading Ltd. in Woodford, England has purchased an electric van for use by its retail outlet along with refurbishing the exterior and reception area of its premises. Both projects were assisted by Kumho Tyres.

The Nissan van that goes by the name of ‘KEV’ – Kumho Electric Vehicle – not only has environmentally-friendly propulsion, but rides on special lightweight, low friction Kumho Wattrun VS31 tyres, especially designed to complement the inherently green attributes of electrically powered vans and cars.

It also has its own charging station on the premises. The changes to the building, whose attractive bold graphics make it considerably more eye-catching than before, have markedly improved the look of the busy corner site concerned.

Commenting on the success of the joint venture, Kumho Area Sales Manager Simon Carey said: “The relationship between our two companies has built up over four to five years, and it’s been great to be able to support the go-ahead ideas for Barkingside Tyres & Brakes, which have definitely benefited both their customers and everybody living and shopping in the busy area in which they are located.”

Alltyres Trading Ltd’s general manager, Ronan O’Connell added: “We’re very grateful to Kumho for its assistance with the van, which has immediately made our business more efficient and environmentally friendly.”
