Vredestein Winter Campaign 2016

Vredestein Winter Campaign 2016

Although we are now half way through the 2016 winter. Hence, I would like to comment about the Vredestein supply chain. Of course, as far as I am concerned, there has not been one?

Here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax Yorkshire, UK. As a result, made the right decision to start to sell the Mother brand of Vredestein, Apollo tyres. This decision meant that I have had a good supply situation.Especially of winter tyres.

However, my friend in Huddersfield, decided to continue selling the excellent Vredestein tyre brand.As stated, Apollo bought out Vredestein a couple of years ago now. I did fear that things would change?

Apollo tyres changed the Vredestein management, making some redundancies. Things like this always happen as the mother company starts to throw their weight about and make changes.

As I have said, things like this always happen. As a result of the takeover, then Vredestein tyre supplies began to run short. Tyre retailers, such as my friend in Huddersfield were very badly let down.Thus, by lack of Vredestein stock available.

Lets hope that things improve in 2017, but i doubt it?
