Leading tyres safety organisation TyreSafe has added another high profile tyre manufacturer to its ranks.
Maxxis is looking forward to putting 40 years of manufacturing experience to good use by spreading the tyres safety message.
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, said: “Following the success of October’s Tyre Safety Month, we’ve seen a great deal of interest from potential new members, not just tyre manufacturers but other companies and organisations associated with the trade.
“We are particularly pleased that Maxxis has put pen to paper and joined the TyreSafe family. Its high standards for quality, efficiency and innovation are widely recognised and will add great weight to future campaigns.”
Derek McMartin, managing director of Maxxis, added: “Tyre safety has always been of paramount importance to Maxxis and we are rightly proud of our history of manufacturing reliable and durable products. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to go one step further and give our support to TyreSafe, which has played such an important role in helping to reduce tyre related accidents.
“But don’t just take our word for it, the facts speak for themselves. Since TyreSafe’s inception in 2006, its activities have helped reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured each year in a tyre related accident by 38 per cent. Therefore, we know that our input will really help make a difference – even just one life saved makes it all worthwhile.”
Maxxis manufactures tyres for almost all types of vehicles, from standard car and motorbike tyres, through to ATVs, Quads and off-road bikes. Commercial vehicles are catered for with truck and bus tyres also an area of expertise.
