Leicestershire-based Apex Plant Group is continuing to see the benefits of using Westlake Tyres, two years on from when Vacu-Lug first began supplying them with Westlake products.
Based in Cosby, Leicester, Apex Plant Group is one of the region’s leading equipment rental and specialist haulage companies. The company has become a familiar and highly recognisable brand within the construction and mobile equipment rental sectors across the country and has invested heavily in its hire and transport fleet to cater for its customer network.
As the sole UK distributor of Westlake tyres, Grantham retreading company, Vacu-Lug Traction Tyres, supplies tyres for Apex Plant’s fleet of vehicles.
To date, Apex Plant Group is delighted with the performance of Westlake’s tyres, and is continuing to see a positive result in terms of operating economy and efficiency.
Westlake tyres are characterised by their unique pattern designs, which offer the operator optimal handling performance, increased durability and excellent ride comfort. The products are cost-effective, as well as being produced to high environmental standards.
Apex Plant’s Managing Director, David Marriott, comments: “I am delighted with the consistent performance we have enjoyed since moving our fleet to a Westlake policy supported with Vaculug retread tyres. We have saved money whilst optimising the performance of our fleet and through improved tyre management”.
Westlake tyres span a wide variety of application types and are available in 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5” rim diameters. They are suitable for drive, steer and trailer axles on light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles.
