Kerr’s Tyres Group acquires Roundabout Tyre & Battery Service

Northern Ireland tyre management specialists Kerr’s Tyres & Auto has acquired Belfast based Roundabout Tyre & Battery Service for an undisclosed fee.

Roundabout Tyre & Battery Service has been operating from Belfast’s outer ring for 31 years. It has now been rebranded as Roundabout Tyres & Auto and will offer the same 24/7 365 UK and Ireland coverage provided by Kerr’s Tyres Group.

Kerr’s Tyres Group, who operate in Ireland as Auto Tyre Services, says the acquisition will strengthen its national coverage.

Kerr’s adds that it has retained the current staff and is recruiting further so customer service can be maintained and further services introduced.

The firm’s commercial director James McKee said: “Despite the ongoing concerns over Covid-19 and impending changes to the market with Brexit there were a number of compelling reasons to complete this transaction.

“It not only strengthens the Kerr’s footprint across Northern Ireland, it broadens our service offering, helping to diversify the business and build on its success achieved to date. The sector offers opportunities for consolidation and we will be looking carefully at how we can continue to grow Kerr’s Tyres Group.”
