ITH more than 90 years industry experience between them, it’s no surprise that the talented team at North Lincs Tyres are this year celebrating 20 years of supplying first-class products and services throughout the region. They can be justifiably proud of their reputation

as one of the most knowledgeable independent specialists in the area, providing expert knowledge, reliability and value for money to industrial, commercial and retail customers alike. North Lincs Tyres Ltd began life in 1994 under directors Tony Woods, Brian Townsend and Chris Hamilton.


Today, it employs 11 fitters, all fully trained in every aspect of tyre, battery and exhaust fitting, as well as wheel alignment – making the Lockhill depot on Victoria Street, Grimsby, a one-stop shop for all your vehicle needs. Managing director, Tony Woods, said: “We set up the company because we wanted to work for ourselves

and believed we could do a better job. “I am proud of what we have achieved in the business and we pride ourselves with a friendly and efficient service. “We offer everything you can think of to do with tyres, exhausts, batteries, alloy wheels and wheel alignment.” Having being involved with numerous local charities

over the last 20 years, the firm has raised significant amounts with the assistance of tyre suppliers and manufacturers. The North Lincs team is going to continue to give something back to the community that has supported them for so long, by raising a minimum of £20,000 for local charities in 2014.

Congratulations to

on your 20th Anniversary



ITH a customer base which includes some of the largest fleets in the region – operating on a multi-national scale – having the right equipment to provide the best possible service is a key component of North Lincs Tyres’ business ethos. From Tugmasters to Reach Stackers, no job is too big for the team, who combine their expert knowledge with use of a state-of-the art tyre handler jacking system and all relevant presses to offer a swift, efficient and reliable response. It is this commitment to providing “tyre management by professionals” that has earned North Lincs Tyres the contracts for maintaining the majority of Grimsby, Immingham

and other Humber ports’ dockside equipment – a position it has held since 1994. Based on an idea from managing director Tony Woods, a JCB has been adapted and custom designed to grip and remove a tyre and wheel simultaneously – and is capable of a 180 degree turn, which offers a high degree of manoeuvrability. This is no mean feat as, together, they can weigh in excess of 900kg. Tony said: “For our customers, it means their equipment is back in operation with reduced downtime, which obviously saves them money in the long term. “Our customers know they can depend on North Lincs Tyres to give as fast and efficient service as possible at all times.”


“Cutting the cost of card payments” NO business is complete today without the means to take electronic payments. With fewer customers carrying cash, it’s good to know there’s a reliable organisation out there that can provide high quality solutions for businesses of all sizes – allowing you to process payments using everything from chip and pin to text messaging. That’s where Retail Merchant Services comes in.

With payment processing solutions at the centre of its offer, RMS membership also includes free 24/7 legal helpline, free tax and VAT investigation insurance and access to a suite of other products, aiming to reduce costs on other essential services such as telecoms, utilities and business banking. Gareth added: “For example, we partner with Santander to provide a preferential business bank account that is not available on the high street.” And as the future of payments becomes increasingly mobile, so has RMS kept up with developments so they can provide their customers with the most up-to-date technology – ensuring, where accepting card payments is concerned, nobody is left behind. RMS also promises:

Since starting up seven years ago with a team of three, RMS has become a National organisation with more than 28,000 customers already signed up and over 200 employees making it all possible. This fast growing company specialises in providing payment solutions to small and medium businesses in the form of chip and pin processing terminals, online payment gateways, SMS and telephone payments. Independent of the banks and established to provide fair and no nonsense merchant services to all, RMS delivers cost savings to its customers via its bespoke membership package, designed with the small business owner in mind. Managing director Gareth Poppleton says: “The speed at which we have developed has meant constant recruitment to keep up with our expansion and increasing demand.” Among those there at the start was Grimsby’s North Lincs Tyres, who were so impressed with the service provided, it recommended RMS to its clients and suppliers – putting it firmly on the road to success.

• A UK call centre with calls never diverted abroad • Trained and experienced payment experts ready to help • Reliable and fast payment processing • Capped rates, ensuring your fees will not go up

HEN it comes to North Lincs Tyres’ industrial and commercial service, “one call does it all.” As well as offering a full solid and pneumatic fitting service, the firm also carries a large variety of stock, ensuring it can provide a fast and efficient response to all forklift tyre requirements. The use of a solid press has also enabled North Lincs to increase the product range of solid forklift tyres supplied, boosting the firm’s industrial business. Work centres largely on the road haulage industry and covers a wide variety of vehicles, from local delivery vans to transcontinental articulated lorries. North Lincs Tyres offers a fleet management service, controlled by fleet services manager Rick Lambert, and uses the latest handheld computer system (PDA). The system produces a comprehensive report, which enables both North Lincs Tyres and the customer to review, on a weekly or monthly basis, any remedial work that is required – again, helping to reduce costs. Managing director, Tony Woods said: “When you’re
