Goodyear retains UK Police contract
Tyre manufacturer builds on over 25 consecutive years of supply to the UK Police Force
Goodyear has announced the continuation of its 25-year partnership with the UK Police Force, through which the global tyre manufacturer will supply, service and maintain the Government-operated fleet for an additional four years.
The UK Crown Commercial Service has confirmed the sole supply and fitment of Goodyear tyres to the entire UK Police Force, as well as the provision of tyres for non-police government services, including cars, trucks and motorcycles.
As part of the continued service provision, UK Police Forces will be supplied with a wide range of high-performance tyres and fitting products from across the Goodyear portfolio. They will also benefit from the support of Goodyear’s fast-fit network, HiQ Fleet Services, which delivers tyre fitment and maintenance to keep police vehicles on the road.
David Morris, Head of Fleet for Goodyear, said: “Winning and retaining this contract means that Goodyear has held the position as sole supplier to the police for over 25 consecutive years. Being trusted to keep our blue-light services on the road is testament to our products and the first-rate service provided by the HiQ network. We are thrilled to retain this prestigious contract and partnership with the Crown Commercial Service.”
National Account Manager at Goodyear, Sarah Martin, added: "We believe that the key strengths of Goodyear have enabled us to retain this contract, such as our strong, innovative and award-winning product portfolio, dedicated account management, and the high priority our HiQ Fleet Service network places on this important contract.”
