The family owned company have rightfully earned their reputation as Lincolnshire's and East Yorkshire's leading independent tyre specialist, in both retail and wholesale, and they are currently setting standards that admiring competitors throughout the country are finding hard to follow.
The success story
began when Benjamin Arthur Bush, fondly known locally as Benny, ran a cycle shop
in New Bolingbroke Nr Boston, Lincolnshire and shortly before World War II
responded to growing public demand by adding the supply of pneumatic car tyres
to his established cycle-tyre business.
Following 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.
Under the direction of Benny's son Ivor, and now his grandson Nigel, the company has grown substantially with stores opening in Skegness, Stickney, Louth and the first of the 'new look' branches in Sleaford. Spilsby replaced Stickney in 1986, with Sleaford providing the blueprint for further expansion programmes at Boston, Beverley and Grimsby. The growth continued across the region with depots opening in Hull, Long Sutton, Scunthorpe and Kings Lynn, Hull, Bourne, and the state of the art facility at Spalding as well as Spalding Commercial. More recently there has been the new additions of Goole, Serviceline Hull and the super advanced warehouse hub in Barton has cemented their position as one of most advanced independent wholesalers in the UK. Bush Tyres recently developed a second site at Grimsby, and the truck distribution hub - Wolds Commercial. Alongside this continual growth and development, the company bought the majority share of Endyke tyres - a vastly successful distribution and retail customer in the Hull Area.
In 2010, Bush Tyres joined with fellow Group Tyre Members Elite Garage and Tanvic Group to form Grouptyre Wholesale (GTW), a pioneering a distribution company that delivers unparalleled tyre stocks and service to tyre retailers across through the South. The success of this business has led to an expansion from its Aylesbury site to a second site in Brentwood in recent years to further enhance its service offering.
