CAMBRIDGE, England, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- etyres, the UK's leading online tyres company, announces it is strengthening its nationwide coverage and continuing to grow at a rapid rate, despite the challenging economic climate.
etyres has reported a steep rise in the number of new branches launching across the UK.
The intensified growth of the UK's leading online tyres company has led to a strengthening of its nationwide coverage. The consolidation of its network is also enhancing the service provided to thousands of customers every week.
Since the start of 2009 the Cambridge-based firm has launched almost 40 new branches around the UK, stretching from Ayr down to Bournemouth and from Ipswich across to Newport.
Tony Bowman, the managing director of etyres, said: "We are tremendously proud that we are continuing to reinforce our nationwide coverage at such a fast rate, which means we can enhance the service offered to our customers.
"By opening so many new branches we are able to respond swiftly to supply and fit new tyres all over the UK."
Four new branches have started operating in the past month and several more will begin trading within the next couple of weeks, to coincide with the seasonal hike in demand for winter tyres.
Bowman added: "Despite the economic downturn our business has been identified by investors looking to start-up their own business as a franchise operation that can succeed, even in a recession.
"And our existing franchise owners are also benefiting from a boom in business, with more than a dozen taking on extra vans during the last few months to cope with the increase in demand for our service.
"Our success is based on a tried-and-tested formula of giving customers what they want - cheap tyres and a convenient mobile fitting service at a location of their choice."
Launched in 1997, etyres is the UK's first online tyres retailer. It operates a mobile fitting service, which means customers can have their tyres fitted at a location of their choice, whether they want tyres in Huddersfield or Bournemouth, at their home or their place of work.
Its low overheads mean the price customers pay is always low - up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street tyre depots on a wide range of tyres, from premium brands like Continental car tyres and Pirelli tyres to budget brands.
