Tyres4U forestry dealers to distribute Nokian Tyres

A new range of specialty forestry tyres will be available through Tyres4U from this month after a new deal was signed

Forestry tyre specialist Nokian Tyres will be distributed in Australia solely through Tyres4U after signing a new deal with the distributor.

The full range of Nokian Tyres will be available for purchase through the Tyres4U forestry dealer network from early September, the company says.

Nokian says its tyres have been developed in collaboration with machinery manufacturers and tested throughout the Nordic forests where they were designed.

Company specialists are currently training Tyres4U forestry dealers to get them up to speed on the technical requirements, safety and speed of fitment of the new products.

Tyres4U Australian general manager James Dickinson says customers get the best results when they have the right tyre fit and right tyre pressure in place.

“Heavy machinery needs specialised equipment and technical skills to fit forestry tyres in a safe and timely manner, whilst also providing the information and service to maintain correct tyre pressures,” he says.

“Together with Nokian Tyres we intend to develop a skilled forestry dealer network that supports the needs of the forestry and timber industry by providing them great technical support to help customers reduce down time and optimise tyre life.”

Nokian Tyres business manager for the Asia Pacific Dean McRae says Tyres4U offered an end-to-end tyre solution for the entire value chain – including locally-based accout managers and a flexible supply chain.

“With strategically located warehouses around Australia, their strength lies in the ability to hold the right stock to service our customers,” he says.

“We know that forestry machinery is just one aspect of the value-chain, with truck, trailer, forklifts, and tractors also being used.”

“We intend to give our forestry dealers access to all of the tyres required to support the industry, plus have the technical knowledge to fit the right tyre and provide great in-store and on-field service.”
