Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions’ fleet of more than 46,000 maintained cars and vans will continue to run on Michelin tyres after the two companies extended their agreement.

​All replacement tyres will continue to be fitted by ATS Euromaster, which has more than 340 centres nationwide and approximately 820 mobile service vans.

Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions’ Head of Operations, Tim Bowden, said the decision to renew its tyre supply contract with Michelin was based on a combination of the
high-quality product, exemplary safety performance and fuel efficiency savings achieved by its customers.

He says: “Our fleet is so diverse and we have customers in many different sectors – and yet we have seen them all benefit from Michelin tyres.

"They will all be saving fuel because of the low rolling resistance, they know the tyres are durable which means less downtime for their employees, and they know if they are driving on Michelin, they are on a premium tyre.

“That combination gives peace of mind to our customers and ensures we are providing the best service possible.”
