Prometeon supports the Red Cross during pandemic

The Prometeon Tyre Group is donating one euro for each tyre sold in Europe in May to the International Committee of the Red Cross’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The donation will strengthen its humanitarian projects aimed at supporting the people who are directly exposed to the economic and health emergency.

As part of its Together initiative, Prometeon has invited suppliers, customers and its staff to donate as well. Furthermore, Prometeon will match its suppliers’ contributions.

Prometeon is the licensed supplier of Pirelli-branded commercial vehicle tyres and the only tyre company solely focused on the commercial and industrial vehicle sectors.

Peter Fairlie, Managing Director of Prometeon Tyre Group UK, says: “The COVID-19 pandemic compels us to unite. There’s not a part of Prometeon’s worldwide network that has not been affected by the pandemic. As a global company, it is right that we support a global humanitarian organisation in the shape of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

“We urge our customers, suppliers and staff to help us support the vital work of the International Committee of the Red Cross. We’re all in this together.”
