The two companies have a history of working together, Micheldever said in a 22 Feb statement, noting that both companies focus on the principles of â€œbest service, best prices, strong availability and friendly customer service.â€
Harris Brothers founders and directors, Derek Phillipart and Leighton Walker, are to remain with the company.
â€œOnce again we have provided an exit opportunity to a valued customer. We will continue to follow this strategy of growing our market share and working in harmony with our wholesale customers,â€ said Jon Cowles, group acquisitions director at Micheldever Group.
He added, â€œWe have a strong pipeline of acquisition targets coming through over the next few months and it is great to kick off 2011 with an acquisition of this quality and size.â€
An independent UK wholesaler, distributor and retailer of tyres, Micheldever Tyre Services, of which Protyre is the retail-trading arm, said this latest acquisition brings its total number of tyre outlets to 53.
