For more than 20 years, Kevin Burke Tyres (KBT) has been a key part of the Athenry, Co. Galway community, providing a quality and reliable service to Athenry motorists and businesses, while providing direct employment to dozens of local people over the years.
Last month, the company made the exciting move from its premises in Caheroyan, to a purpose-built facility in Furzy Park, just off the Galway-Dublin Motorway.
Spanning three decades, Kevin Burke Tyres has transitioned from a tyre retailer catering for the local area, to one of the largest wholesale tyre providers in the country.
Operating from a new state-of-the-art premises, the company will continue to offer superior levels of service to its wholesale customers.
The new facility possesses the equipment and space to cater for every kind of vehicle, from a Mini to a Massey and everything in between. With abundant customer parking, massive servicing bays, as well as a drive through tracking bay, which can facilitate articulated trucks… the new premises has been built to the specifications required for a thriving retail and wholesale tyre business.
The KBT journey began in the early 1990s, when Kevin Burke returned from England to take over the service station he had worked in as a boy, the Arch Petrol Station in Athenry. With the needs of the modern customer in mind, Kevin set about providing a fast, reliable and affordable service to motorists. Everything from a swift oil / filter change to a full valet could be found under the shadow of the historic Athenry Arch.
From those beginnings followed 24 years of business growth and success in Caheroyan, with KBT becoming a landmark fixture alongside the bridge toward Monivea. With the years, the business has expanded beyond what the Caheroyan location can now provide, and so it is with great excitement that the move to Furzypark has taken place.
The surroundings may have changed,, but with the same experienced and friendly sales and service team in place, KBT’s retail and wholesale customers can be reassured that they will receive the same great service in Furzy Park, as they did in Caheroyan.
