History of Bush Tyres

Benjamin Arthur Bush, fondly known locally as Benny, ran a cycle shop in New Bolingbroke near Boston, Lincolnshire. Shortly before World War II he responded to growing public demand by adding the supply of pneumatic car tyres to his established cycle-tyre business. After the war ‘B.A. Bush’ became a recognised tyre dealer and by 1947 were fitting tyres to vehicles of all types.

In 1962 the company re-located to its present head office site in the old Station Yard, Horncastle and since those early days, under the direction of Benny’s son Ivor and his grandson Nigel, the company has grown substantially and continues to do so to this day.
