ERJ staff report (DS)
Aston, Birmingham -- Contrary to reports from tyre retailers and fast-fit chains in the UK reporting stocks of cold weather tyres had â€œsold-outâ€, Michelin subsidiary, ATS Euromaster has reaffirmed its commitment to ring-fencing supplies to support existing fleets using the high-grip seasonal fitment.
â€œWe will not sell every cold weather tyre on our shelves by the end of March - and that's deliberately so,â€ says Peter Fairlie, Group Sales Director at ATS Euromaster. â€œWe've protected a percentage of our stocks, in each of the key sizes, to ensure we can support our customers if they suffer a puncture.
ATS said much of the early demand for cold weather tyres during winter 2010/2011 was led by NHS Ambulance Trusts spanning England, Wales and Scotland - with ATS Euromaster fitting the high-grip seasonal tyres to hundreds of ambulances and rapid-response paramedic cars nationwide.
