Flogas in safe hands with ATS Euromaster sole supply tyre deal
ATS Euromaster has renewed a major national contract to
supply, fit and service tyres for Flogas Britain, thanks to its unmatched
safety accreditations and proven fast response times.
The company’s position as the only tyre specialist with
SafeContractor, Contractors’ Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS) and RoSPA Gold
accreditation was decisive in winning the competitive tender.
It sees ATS Euromaster named primary tyre service provider
across Flogas’ 500-strong fleet, which ranges from 3.5-tonne light commercial
vehicles to 44-tonne articulated gas tankers.
ATS Euromaster’s fleet of more than 820 mobile service vans
also played a critical role in securing the renewal thanks to its ability to
react rapidly in the event of a tyre-related roadside emergency.
Stephen Moir, fleet manager at Flogas, said: “As part of our
energy supply service to domestic and commercial customers nationwide, we
transport bulk tankers and cylinders of LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), along
with tankers of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) - so safety is our absolute
priority. That high commitment to safety was one of the reasons we renewed with
“As a business, we work extremely hard to keep unplanned
downtime to an absolute minimum, and knowing we can access fast, professional
and safe tyre support at the roadside is paramount for dealing with
emergencies. ATS Euromaster’s commitment to have a technician on-site, with the
right tyre, within 90 minutes of our
drivers reporting a problem was a key factor in our renewal.”
Under the new contract, ATS Euromaster will fit Michelin new
and Michelin Remix tyres, with regular inspections and proactive tyre
management including regrooving, twinning and turning tyres on the rim -
helping to ensure each tyre casing delivers the maximum life in service, whilst
bolstering fleet safety and compliance.
Flogas Britain is also taking advantage of Michelin’s free
accidental tyre damage guarantee, which promises to refund the company in the
event of a tyre suffering accidental damage before it is 50% worn.
