Michelin new tyre supplier of BNP Paribas Rental Solutions

Michelin is now supplying tyres for BNP Paribas Rental Solutions’ UK fleet, as part of a new agreement with one of Europe’s largest asset finance, leasing and rental specialists.

The deal sees Michelin’s Services & Solutions division supplying all tyres on a fully managed basis across a nationwide fleet of specialist mission-critical vehicles.

Commenting, Benoit Laflamme, Head of BNP Paribas Rental Solutions UK, said: “It’s not a one-size-fits-all policy; Michelin is using the full extent of its tyre range to cater for our varied customer base, which operate everything from specialist vans to HGVs, including fuel tankers, cranes, car transporters, refuse collection vehicles and refrigerated trucks on intensive multi-drop work.”

The partnership is said to have already hit the ground running, with BNP Paribas Rental Solutions supporting fleets in the fuel, builder’s merchants, traffic control, distribution, healthcare, fuel and waste sectors that have helped keep the nation on its feet during the coronavirus pandemic.
