News of our nomination has spread across our local town of Redditch. We have been nominated in the National Tyre Distribution Association (NTDA) awards this year in the category of Tyre & Aftermarket supplier of the year, making us a UK market leader in the supply of tyre and garage equipment to the trade.
Being nominated means that members of the NTDA, made up of the largest and most recognised tyre retailers in the UK, voted to include us in the top five suppliers in the country, of which there are hundreds!
Tyre Bay Direct is owned and run by four members of the same family who have lived in Redditch for over 20 years. Leigh Stote, Sales and Marketing Director said, “It’s fantastic that from our humble beginnings around 12 years ago we have grown into a leading supplier in our field. Our team has grown and grown in recent years and most of our staff are from Redditch or the immediate surrounding area, which is great as we have used only local, talented people to achieve our success.”
Started by Roger Stote in the 90’s, we originally specialised in Nitrogen Tyre Inflation for Formula 1 before moving into the general tyre industry, now we supply all manner of equipment for fast fit centres and garages. Since then, and because of our growth, we now occupy a 20,000 sq ft building with our team and are often recruiting locally for new team members.
A nervous few weeks now await us as the online voting continues until the deadline on September 19th when the award is decided. The lucky winner will be presented with their award the NTDA Gala dinner in Manchester in October. If you think we deserve the award please vote online. Thank you!
