Bridgestone has clinched a fleet agreement with CM Downton that sees it extend its existing 10-year tyre care contract.

Bridgestone attributed winning the new five year pence-per-kilometre (PPK) deal to a close working relationship with Downton, and its Total Tyre Care package that underpins the company’s aim to offer more miles on the road per-tyre than its competitors.

The Total Tyre care package aims to limit tyre related costs by offering new premium tyres, professional tyre maintenance and assistance throughout Europe as well as inspection tools, customised reports and technologies such as Bridgestone’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Bridgestone’s commercial sales director Greg Ward said: “We are naturally thrilled to have reached this agreement with CM Downton and we will strive to keep on improving on our results to date.

“The business has established itself at the forefront of a highly competitive industry and we see it as a massive coup to have been chosen to provide tyre solutions for the team, not least when competition was so high.”

Richard Downton, financial director at the operator (pictured left), said: “We are delighted that this partnership is proving so beneficial for us and it was an easy decision for us to make in the end.

“Our ongoing relationship with Bridgestone is helping us to raise industry standards and we look forward to building on this joint collaboration.”
