Tyre retail group BA Bush & Son and its wholesale arm B.A.B. Distribution - which is a member of Grouptyre, the UK's leading independent tyre wholesaler - has acquired the former Enterprise Tyres in Spalding. The move means that the family-owned business now operates from two prime sites in the town, while it has increased its network of retail depots throughout Lincolnshire, Humberside and East Yorkshire to 16.
The new Bush Tyres centre in Spalding, located a mile from the A16, will stock approximately 1,000 car tyres and over 500 truck tyres. The six staff have been retained and Luke Gale and Michelle Pite, who both worked for Enterprise Tyres for several years and know the local marketplace inside out, have taken on the day-to-day management responsibilities.
In addition to a full range of services for truck fleet operators, the centre stocks and fit batteries and offers outside agricultural, truck and commercial vehicle servicing. There is also a mobile car tyre fitting service, which will provide support to the Bush Tyres retail depots in Kings Lynn and Bourne, as well as Spalding.
â€œEnterprise Tyres specialised in truck accounts with outside fitting and our aim is to develop this side of our business by maximising the existing team's knowledge and experience and providing additional benefits through our own resources, including the latest tools and fleet checking systems,â€ says director Thomas Bush.
