TYRESAFE SIGNS UP McCONECHY’S & GORDON's TYRES
McConechy’s Tyre Services, the largest independent garage chain in Scotland and trading in Yorkshire as Gordon's Tyres, has become the latest tyre retailer to join the safety organisation TyreSafe.
Established in 1957, McConechy’s has more than 50 branches across Scotland, five branches in Yorkshire (Gordon's Tyres) and will utilise its membership of TyreSafe to help advise customers on the many important aspects of regular tyre care and maintenance.
As well as supporting TyreSafe’s various campaigns, the company will also make a range of advice materials available in all of its branches and via its website.
TyreSafe’s safety messages will also be spread south of the border as McConechy’s also has five branches operating across Yorkshire under the Gordon’s Tyres banner.
Donald Carmichael, Managing Director, McConechy’s Tyre Service, explained: “We are delighted to join TyreSafe and its other members in helping to raise awareness about the importance of correct tyre care.
“With the ongoing squeeze on household budgets, many drivers are now running their tyres much longer than is either safe or legal so it is important that we help them understand the safety risks they are taking. By joining TyreSafe we believe we will be able to do this in a much more compelling manner.”
Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, commented: “With an established presence across the whole of Scotland, we’re delighted to welcome on board McConechy’s as our latest member.
“Weather conditions in Scotland can make driving particularly challenging so it’s important that drivers north of the border fully understand their tyre maintenance responsibilities. With McConechy’s support, I’m confident we can improve awareness of this important issue.”
As well as tyre retailers and manufacturers, TyreSafe’s membership now spans many areas of the automotive industry from insurers to car manufacturers. Many councils, police forces and road safety partnerships are now also supporters utilising TyreSafe’s campaign materials for local initiatives.
