Tyre firm opens Black Country depot

A national tyre fitting business has launched a new depot in the Black Country as part of its plans to expand nationally.

TyresOnTheDrive was set up in 2011 and has operations in Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and Oxford. Its new base in Oldbury will operate as a Midlands distribution centre and also include a two storey office building.

Dominic Clark, chief executive of TyresOnTheDrive, said: “The opening of a new hub in Oldbury plays an important role in our plans for continued growth throughout the UK, aiming to raise industry standards for the UK motorists via our fleet of mobile tyre fitting units to every home in the UK by the end of 2015.

“The central location and impressive road network this new site offers will allow us to run a more cost effective and efficient service, ultimately keeping our costs down for the consumer.”

The company agreed a ten year lease on the 13,112 sq ft site. It was advised by Cushman & Wakefield while DTZ advised the landlord.

John Sambrooks of DTZ’s Industrial agency team in Birmingham added: “This is a great move for TyresOnTheDrive and its growing customer base and means they can now offer coverage across Birmingham and the Black Country.

“We received considerable interest in the unit given its strong transport links to the M5 and M6 and the large secure yard which was a particular benefit to TyresOntheDrive as a growing business.”
