Vacu-Lug has been appointed as the sole UK distributor for all West Lake TBR (Truck and Bus Radial) tyres in a move which sees a total of nine new product lines are added to the Vacu-Lug portfolio. Spanning a wide variety of operation types and with a choice of 17.5″, 19.5″ and 22.5″ rim diameters, West Lake tyres are suitable for drive and steer axle applications for light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles.
“We are delighted to add West Lake to our growing range of tyres and associated tyre fleet management services,” comments Vacu-Lug Managing Director Tim Hercock. “West Lake manufactures a quality product to the highest environmental standards and as such we are delighted to now be able to offer this highly cost-effective brand to the UK’s transport operators.”
In terms of its environmental credentials, West Lake is one of the first global manufacturers to produce an entirely aromatic-free range of tyres. This means all West Lake tyres are fully REACH compliant. Standing for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, the (REACH) Reach Directive EC/1907-2006 identifies and defines chemicals of concern contained in products for use in the European Union. The standard details the registration obligations of manufacturers and suppliers to ensure compliance.
