Earlier this month local MP for Grantham and Stamford, Nick Boles, visited long-established local retreading business and tyre management provider, Vacu-Lug Traction Tyres Ltd, to see their latest manufacturing developments and learn more about their recently-developed, industry-leading VMS Mobile app, designed to provide operators with fingertip access to their fleet’s tyre data whenever and wherever they need it.

Vacu-Lug, which was founded in 1950, has recently experienced a further upturn in demand that has boosted recruitment since the introduction of EU anti-dumping duties in May 2018. Mr Boles pledged his support to help the retread industry in seeing the duties, which are currently in place for six months, extended.
