SG Revolution tyres ready for despatch to major waste company in Hungary
Hungarian waste company Zold Hid has chosen SG Revolution super cushion solid tyres for their brand new JCB 527-58 Loadalls; part of a larger order of JCB machines. The machines are set to handle various waste materials at the company’s recently expanded, state of the art, waste facility near to picturesque Lake Balaton, south-west of Budapest. The tyres were selected for their ability to work in arduous environments with no risk of punctures from loose or sharp objects on site. Manufactured from a special rubber compound to a solid design they minimise downtime from tyre problems because they simply keep on working even if damaged.
The tyres were ordered a sales special with the original machine order from Terra Equipment, JCB’s Central European dealer. They were delivered to the JCB factory in Rocester for assembly line fitment ready for despatch to Hungary. Les Williams, MD of ITWS, suppliers of the SG tyres across UK and Europe, is delighted at this latest order. “SG Revolution tyres are becoming increasingly popular for machines of all makes and sizes destined for the waste and recycling sector. Not only do they prevent punctures but the wear characteristics are phenomenal meaning that the lifetime value of the tyres is quite excellent. With integrated air holes designed in to the tyre they also provide a comfortable ride for the operator and help absorb shocks from rough terrain.”
Vive la France
Fantastic upturn in French business
We’re delighted to report that business is booming in France for SG Revolution super cushion solid tyres. Our dealer, Genie Civil Service, visited the ITWS warehouse and offices in November 2012 to sign an agreement giving them exclusivity in France and this has proved to be a great move for both businesses.
Genie Sales Manager, Jerome Mure, was impressed by the scope of the operation and has subsequently placed orders for some 52 tyres and 14 rims since the visit; some of which were for stock, but the majority of which have been sold to end users in a variety of applications. Both businesses are hugely optimistic about the future.
New JCB Loadall good for SG Revolution tyre sales
The launch of JCB’s largest telescopic handler to date, the JCB 550-80 Wastemaster, has benefited sales of SG Revolution Super Cushion solid tyres.
Launched in September 2012 the machine was designed for the waste and recycling sector who needed a machine with greater capacity. JCB approached ITWS to design a tyre that could be specified as a factory fit option for machines requiring a puncture free solution for work in harsh ground conditions. Sales figures pre and post Christmas have been fantastic with several sets of tyres being despatched from ITWS every week destined for the assembly line at JCB.
SG Revolution Tyres provide EMR with solution for their Scania trucks
Working on a waste site not only presents puncture problems for mobile plant and machinery, but also for trucks and wagons arriving on and off site.
Having specified SG Revolution super cushion solid tyres for their fleet of wheeled loaders for many years, EMR asked ITWS to work with them to source suitable SG tyres for their Scania truck which was also suffering from puncture problems due to the harsh site conditions. MD of ITWS, Les Williams, worked in partnership with the EMR team to provide all the relevant data to ensure the 8 wheel rigid tipper truck, which carries and moves skips, would perform equally as well as on pneumatic tyres. The truck now boasts 8 x 1000x20 SG C2 pattern tyres to the rear and 4 x 1100x20 SC8X pattern to the front of the truck. Feedback from the team at EMR has been excellent.
Another Successful Dealer Visit
The Nortire Group Directors and Sales Managers visited the ITWS head office in Lancashire in late November 2012 with a view to renew their exclusive agreement for SG tyres with ITWS for Finland and the Baltic states. Taking in a visit to the brand new warehouse and offices recently occupied by ITWS the Nortire team left impressed by the scope of the operation and particulalry with the stock levels of SG solid tyres
The agreement was signed by Managing director Jari Pulkkinen who commented that ‘the future for both companies was exciting’.
French dealer visit to new ITWS buildings
Genie civil service is one of the largest industrial tyre companies in France. We were delighted to welcome MD, Jean-Claude Sauvadon and Sales Manager,Jerome Mure, to the new ITWS offices and warehouse during November 2012. The purpose of the visit was to agree and sign their new exclusivity agreement for SG products into France. Both left impressed not only with the large levels of stocks in all sizea of tyres and rims, but also with the logistically well organised business model developed by ITWS. In their own words ‘C’etait fantastique’. Merci Bien!
Jean-Claude said that they had enjoyed the excellent dealer relationship with ITWS over the last five years, and look forward to new and increased business together for the future.
Our new warehouse interior
It’s great now we’re all under one roof.
Here are some pics of the inside of our warehouse. It’s so easy to keep tidy because we have lots of space. Let’s hope it stays that way.
ITWS achieved approval for fitment of the SG super cushion products at factory level for the WA250, WA320 & WA 380 machines with Komatsu Germany last week.
This is a result of working with Komatsu for the last twelve months supplying data and test results. Great result that should make the supply of tyres much more efficient.
New member of the team
The latest addition to the growing ITWS team is Matt Attenborow who has joined us as Assistant Manager and Warehouse Manager.
Matt’s background is in the freight and warehouse industry.
Matt’s enjoying the challenge of working with ITWS so far and it’s certainly been a baptism of fire! In the course of a month we’ve attended a major show, moved to a new building and kept our business running as normal.
ITWS appoints Health & Safety Advisor
We’re very pleased to be working with Colin Marshall who has over 30 years of experience in the world of Health and Safety.
ITWS attach a huge amount of importance to ensure safe working practices for employees, suppliers and anyone else that comes in to contact with them. We are committed to implementing the very latest regulations and delighted that we’ve been able to appoint an expert in this field.
THE RWM Show proves a great hit for ITWS
Our team travelled to the NEC for the duration of the RWM show in September and, once again, it proved to be a great success for us.
With new wheels and tyres on display we were able to attract a good quality and quantity of visitors to our stand and we are busily following up all the leads that were generated during the 3 days.
We were delighted that a brand new set of 1100-20 C28X super cushion tyres was also showcased on the JCB stand fitted to a JCB 527-58 Wastemaster telehandler. ITWS purpose designed the tyre for this latest machine in JCB’s waste line-up and we’re sure it will be popular on many brands of smaller machines in waste and recycling applications.

Our new and modern premises in Leigh combines a large warehouse with a hi-tech office suite to bring all our operations under one roof.
This is the second move for our business in 2 years following sustained growth, particularly in the waste and recycling sectors.
The new building has given us space to introduce a new wheel manufacturing business and to stock a greater range of super cushion solid tyres and we look forward to enjoying continued growth thanks to our investment in these excellent facilities.
We’d be very happy to welcome you to our new buildings.
