While ATS Euromaster is set to dramatically axe up to 80 of its service centres across the UK, etyres, the UK’s leading online tyres company, is continuing to expand and break year-on-year sales records.
Redundancies are on the cards for staff as ATS plans to cut its number of depots from 450 to 370.
However, with tyres sales soaring to all-time highs, etyres is expanding its National Call Centre sales team and launching new franchise territories across the country.
Tony Bowman, managing director of etyres, said: “We are doing what we have always done – giving customers what they want, which is great service at low prices!
“We offer a mobile service so our overheads are low and we pass the savings on to our customers in the form of cheaper prices – up to 40% less than the leading high street tyre depots.”
Meanwhile, Chris Hufflet, ATS group operations director, said: “Motorists and fleet managers are having to become more efficient and the service we offer needs to reflect that.”
It is unknown whether the service centres facing the axe will be sold or closed. Staff are being given time off to seek other employment.
