Lodge Tyre looking to roll out Agricultural Expertise
The Lodge Tyre Company Ltd is a family run tyre business, which until recently operated almost entirely in the West Midlands. In August 2017, however this changed when Lodge Tyre acquired the shares of Kingsway Tyres (Stamford) Ltd, a similar business operating in the East Midlands/East Anglia region. Further acquisitions have subsequently followed giving the new group depots as geographically dispersed as Carlisle and Anglesley, Norwich and Droitwich. The growing 50 store network is believed to be one of the UK’s largest independent tyre retail and service providers, giving it great buying power with all key distributors and a wealth of knowledge ready to assist end users in making better tyre related buying decisions.
There is a high likelihood that Lodge Tyre is able to meet all your tyre needs: be that an All-Terrain 4×4 tyre or a specialist tractor tyre. Our group’s focus remains truck tyres, but within the energetic sales team there is a key specialist unit focused on agricultural tyres. Headed up by Stuart Sharpe of Fakenham – with over 40 years’ experience in the industry, and ably supported by Ian Sharman and Richard Foster, our mission is to assist UK agricultural in all their tyre related decisions.
As Kingsway Tyres, and now trading under the new Lodge Tyre branding, the team has been long-time supporters of the Royal Norfolk Show, giving East Anglian farmers and growers the opportunity to discuss their tyre issues with our experts over a cup of tea at the well-supported annual event.
As major customers of Bridgestone, we were also recently delighted to support their marketing initiative for VT tractor tyres. This saw a tractor travel from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a single set of low compaction Bridgestone VT tyres.
