Much more than just Tyres for the Waste Industry from earthmover tyre specialists OTR

OTR Tyres Ltd, one of the world’s leading earthmover tyre specialists are
offering the Waste Management industry ‘much more than just tyres’.
Exhibiting at RWM again this year OTR will promote not just their range of
new and retreaded solid, cushion and pneumatic tyres but will be
demonstrating the benefits of OTR Tyre Hire, a service exclusively designed
for the waste management industry.

Steve Clipperton, OTR’s Waste Industry Manager, stated: "We have been
working with our customers in the waste industry for many years, addressing
their key problem areas – punctures, downtime and wear rates – which all add
up to tyre cost per hour. Our management solutions – no matter what size of
organisation – are focused on that key issue."

OTR have a unique position in the earthmover tyre marketplace with products,
resources and capabilities to provide a comprehensive outsource tyre service.
Excellent working relationships with all major tyre manufacturers means OTR
can supply a wide range of wheels and tyres, which come with the assurance
of OTR’s full maintenance and support service.

OTR have world class retread manufacturing facilities and offer a wide range
of tread patterns to suit the demanding environments and rough terrains of
scrap yards, landfill sites and transfer stations.

The state of the art manufacturing facility has the ability to retread all
earthmover tyres from 24"-49" and utilises the very latest technology to
provide a quality retreading service, essential to maximising tyre life and
minimising running costs.

The provision of OTR Fil tyres – polyurethane filled puncture resistant tyres –
offers a cost effective long-term solution to tyre related machine downtime in
hazardous environments. Fil tyres are guaranteed 100% Fil and can be
retreaded up to three times, depending on casing quality – giving further cost
savings and environmental benefits on replacement tyres. The OTR Fil
service is available at depots throughout the UK.
OTR also provide a nationwide repairs service on tyres up to 57", with all
repairs carried out to original manufacturer recommendations, ensuring the
quality and safety of every tyre repair.

With a network of strategically placed service depots and satellite units
throughout the UK, OTR have the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to
customer requirements minimising downtime and associated costs. A fleet of
over 40 specialist fitting trucks are operated by experienced, fully trained and
qualified tyre engineers. The trucks have the latest remote handling
equipment, capable of handling 57" tyres and onboard technology to ensure
that tyre service is as efficient as possible.

In addition to ISO 9001:2000 approval OTR have recently gained both ISO
14001:2004 and OHAS 18001:2007. OTR’s Safety & Training Manager, Colin
Marshall, commented: "The ISO 14001 was awarded because our
‘environmental management system’ met the required standards. All OTR
staff have ISO training to ensure the standards set by the company are
maintained in all areas of operation."

Tyre management is perhaps where OTR offer much more than just tyres.
Management is bespoke – suited to site, vehicles and organisation, with
responsibility for tyres placed with OTR. Through regular onsite inspections
tyre wear and usage is monitored, tyres rotated, changed, repaired or
retreaded to reduce tyre operating costs and maximise tyre life. Offered on
fixed term, fixed cost basis, OTR’s tyre management service is designed to
suit the customers requirements no matter how large or how small, how
diverse or remote the operation

"OTR have the ability to offer the customer ‘peace of mind’, with the
knowledge that tyre service is being handled safely, efficiently and cost
effectively," concluded Steve.

OTR Tyres are Europe’s leading earthmover tyre specialists and, as part of the
Kaltire group of companies, are the largest earthmover tyre service provider, globally.
