TyreSafe has welcomed its newest tyres manufacturer member – Giti Tire.
The tyre company, which commenced operations in the UK in 1993 and manufactures the brands GT Radial, Primewell, Runway and Dextero, aims to help the organisation raise awareness about the dangers associated with illegal and defective tyres.
Richard Lyons, Managing Director for Europe for GiTi Tire, said: “We are proud to be joining TyreSafe, it is an important move which will jointly help both parties further educate motorists on the importance of regular tyre care and maintenance.
“We have a long standing commitment to the safety of our customers and the quality of our products, and our membership of TyreSafe is further demonstration of this.”
GiTi Tire joins following a record-breaking year for TyreSafe which saw the group organise a number of safety campaign targeting motorcyclists, fleets as well as its high-profile activities around the hidden dangers of part-worn tyres.
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, said: “We’re delighted to welcome GiTi Tire on board as a key member to help promote our cause.
“The support of our members is invaluable in helping us reach and educate an ever-increasing number of road users. GiTi’s enthusiasm will undoubtedly aid our campaigns which I hope will once again reach record levels in 2013.”
