Aberdeenshire-based Turriff Tyres has received the Michelin stamp of approval, after becoming the first new dealer of 2021 to join the Michelin Quality Centre network.
A family-owned business, it has a well-established reputation in the north of Scotland as a market leader for high performance tyres.
As a Michelin Quality Centre advocate dealership, the company will enjoy advantages such as access to free on-site staff training and participation in Michelin’s mystery shopper programme. They will also receive a full audit of their digital presence – with expert advice from the Michelin team on maximising all online opportunities.
Commenting, Julian Kinsella, owner at Turriff Tyres, says: “We’ve been serving the community for 41 years, since my father started the business. To now have this accreditation from Michelin is a fantastic accolade. Michelin is the best product on the market, and we want to be associated with that.
“A large proportion of our customers are huge car enthusiasts – they want their vehicles fitted with the best tyres available. For us, being accredited by Michelin just backs up the reputation we have built over the years for offering the very highest level of service. Our customers know that if they come here, they can get a quality product, fitted properly.”
Turriff Tyres caters for cars, vans and SUVs but it is the work with high performance vehicles that the business is most widely known for. It is one of the only dealerships in the north of Scotland to operate a Hunter Revolution fully automated tyre fitting machine.
“Some of the vehicles we are working on are very high end, and a set of wheels and tyres on these cars can cost in excess of £10,000 per set. It’s imperative we have the best tools and technology for the job,” adds Kinsella.
