We are thrilled to be celebrating 10 years in business today! We have been reflecting on the journey we’ve been on, where we are now and where we’d like to be in the near future. Although we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary we are still a relatively young business. We’re extremely proud of what we have managed to achieve in this short amount of time and we’d love to share our success story.
Tyre Bay Direct was born on the strength of Roger Stote’s years of experience in the tyre industry, starting with Monarch Remoulds and then the development of an innovative tyre inflation system, known as Uniflate, which replaces compressed air with Nitrogen. In 1991, the creators of the Uniflate systems were approached by Goodyear to develop a tyre inflation system for Formula 1 racing. The original system was a phenomenal success and was soon adopted by all subsequent tyre suppliers in F1 racing.
Tyre Bay Direct, now a family run business, was formed in 2005 by Roger Stote and rapidly became a recognised name in association with the nitrogen tyre inflation systems. The popularity of nitrogen inflation grew and Tyre Bay Direct has since had successful relationships with some of the largest and most recognised companies in the UK such as; Kwik Fit, Selecta Tyre, Merit Tyre and Halfords. Today we have Nitrogen tyre inflation systems installed in over 1,200 tyre shops and fast fit centres across the UK and Europe.
Now in the 10th year of the business we are extremely well placed in the tyre and aftermaket industry. Known as the go-to supplier for garage equipment, tyres, tyre consumables, and workshop tools we have a huge and ever-growing customer database. It gives us great pleasure to know that we have helped set up and kit out countless garages and mobile vans across the country and throughout Europe to great acclaim. Last year we were announced as a finalist for the NTDA’s Tyre and Aftermarket Supplier of the Year and this year we have been short listed again!
To honour a successful 10 years in business and most importantly to thank our customers for helping us reach this milestone, we are giving away one of our most impressive tyre changers.
