Ulster Tyres named Tyre Champion at Pakman Awards 2021

Ulster Tyres has been named Tyre Champion at this year’s Pakman Awards, which recently took place at the Shelbourne Hotel Dublin.

The Pakman Awards 2021 saw representatives from leading organisations and community groups come together in accordance with government guidelines, to recognise achievements in recycling and waste management over the last two years.

In selecting this year’s Tyre Champion, the judging panel said it recognised the extensive work done by Ulster Tyres in putting recycling at the forefront of operations for both tyres and business practices.

Ulster Tyres is one of Ireland’s largest distributors of passenger car tyres to the specialist tyre retail trade, the car dealership sector and the consumer retail market.

The company says it actively encourages and promotes tyre safety through communications, along with utilising the support of Repak ELT and its membership in ensuring the correct disposal of waste is adhered to.

Fiona McGinley, Ulster Tyres, collects the Tyre Champion award from Bill Collins, CEO, Repak ELT.

“We are delighted to have won the Pakman Award for Tyre Champion,” Fiona McGinley, general manager at Ulster Tyres told TyreTrade.ie. “When we started the application process, we were surprised at how many small initiatives we already had in place.

“Collectively it meant our efforts were making a real difference to our local area and our impact on the environment. We were supported by Repak ELT in creating workable solutions to our reporting obligations to Repak ELT and the PRL. It has been a very worthwhile process for us.”

Speaking at the awards, Minister of State for Public Procurement and eGovernment, Ossian Smyth TD said: “Ireland’s Waste Action Plan for a circular economy together with our upcoming Circular Economy Strategy will give Irish businesses and citizens the help they need to move to a circular economy.

“The Pakman Awards is a magnificent opportunity to recognise organisations across the waste and other business sectors who have taken the initiative to play their part in developing Ireland’s circular economy. I congratulate each of the winners and all those who entered the 2021 awards.”
