The Malcolm Group brings blue chip logistics solutions but with a family business ethos. It has grown from modest beginnings in the 1940’s to its most respected position now amongst the UK elite logistics providers by adopting a simple mantra;
“Practical Solutions, Successful Partnerships”.
This approach has now led to a change in tyre partner with WH Malcolms decision to move to a Pirelli and Vaculug tyre policy from 1st May 2010. This decision was made after an intense product test and tender process which saw the leading Truck Tyre Manufacturers’ pitching their best products for performance comparison.
Ultimately, Pirelli fitment for new tyres and Vaculug for retreads were chosen, working hand in hand with ATS as service provider.
Graham Hutchison, Pirelli Director of Truck, UK was obviously pleased with the result
“Tender’s can be difficult situations and The Malcolm Group Management Team and Engineers provided a tough and demanding audience, but Pirelli’s range of new “01” products and Vaculug’s retreads proved to be the best.”. Tim Hercock, Vaculug MD added “This is a firm stamp of approval for the Vaculug/Pirelli partnership and we are looking forward to a strong, professional relationship where we can only add to the Malcolm’s success story”.
Steve Sugden, Malcolm Group Fleet Engineer agreed
“Change is sometimes difficult and Pirelli had some tough competition to improve upon, but Product performance shone through and we’re looking forward to realising the benefits on our bottom line and in our service levels to our other partners, our customers.”
