Vacu-Lug Tyres has secured a major contract to manage the tyres fitted to the entire transport fleet operated by Wincanton on behalf of Wavin Limited, the UK’s leading supplier of water management, plumbing, heating and drainage systems for the Building, Construction and Utilities markets. Highly respected within the construction industry, Wavin has a reputation for innovation and leadership and has an extensive product portfolio under the OSMA, Hepworth, Hep2O, Thermoboard, Intesio and Certus brands.
Covering some 20 trucks and 150 trailers, the contract is based on a Vacu-Lug Pay-As-You-Go policy and includes all fleet inspections, tyre replacements and a nationwide assistance service. The tyres specified by Wincanton are Pirelli and Yokohama for steering axles and Vacu-Lug Duramold for drive and trailer axles. To ensure maximum performance at minimum cost, the policy will be managed using VFM, Vacu-Lug’s bespoke online tyre fleet management system, with ATS Euromaster acting as Vacu-Lug’s nationwide service partner.
Wavin Limited has a total of six distribution centres located throughout the UK including four manufacturing plants. A full tyre husbandry service will be provided by Vacu-Lug and ATS Euromaster at each of these locations.
“In addition to our ability to provide national cover, the transparency of VFM, which provides full access to all operational and cost data, was a key factor in securing this important contract win,” comments Vacu-Lug’s Fleet Sales Director, Dave Alsop. “We are now looking forward to delivering Wincanton and Wavin with a nationwide service that is truly second-to-none.”
