The Weekly Times:

Timely local partnership with global agricultural & OTR tyre brand

One
of Australia’s biggest tyre innovators and distributors, Australian Tyre
Traders (ATT) has announced a partnership that will bring one of the fastest
growing Agricultural and OTR brands in the world to Western Australia.

The partnership will see Ascenso Tyres enter the Australian
market in partnership with ATT, an Australian-owned and operated, private
family business who has been in the local tyre industry for more than 20 years.

With
this new partnership local farms can benefit from accessing a new agricultural tyre
range built on the back of a total of three decades in the global agricultural
tyre industry.  

The
owners of the Ascenso brand, Mahansaria Tyres Private Limited (MTPL) are certainly
famous for their expertise in agricultural tyre development – having launched
two major global brands previously.   Their range of world class agricultural tyres
are designed and manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility, located in
Gujarat, India.   The brand comes with significant
manufacturing investment of over US$ 100 million to date.   Their plant is reportedly spread over 127
acres of land and has a manufacturing capability of 40 million tonnes,
with plans to double this to support demand.

“We
are very excited to now be able to offer Ascenso tyres as part of our
agricultural, industrial, and commercial tyre offering,” says Australia Tyre
Traders (ATT) state manager Lloyd Esler.

The
introduction of the Ascenso partnership with ATT certainly couldn’t come at a
better time for the Western Australia market which has widely experienced strains
on Agricultural stock availability within the larger tyre sizing range this
seeding and spraying season.     

“Ascenso
have been able deliver product into Australia on time – where and when we need
it which has been a blessing for ATT and our Western Australian Tyre dealer network”.
added Mr Esler.

“The
range of tyre sizing is massive – our Perth warehouse has anything from a
600-19 tri rib to suit a vintage Massey Fergusson tractor through to 480/80R50
High load high speed to suit a self-propelled sprayer.”

In
the background ATT’s Australian engineering team has worked closely with
Ascenso to curate an impressive & diverse range of agricultural tyres for
the local market.   The decision to partner with Ascenso has delivered
scale for the market with more patterns and size offerings.

 “We have a locally
relevant product range with all the right sizes – and a local WA dealer network
who know their farm tyres and choose our products.   Being here
locally with relevant engineering and technical support for our local industry
will always remain our focus at ATT”, said Esler. 

“Our
local support team spends a significant amount of time in the field talking
with local tyre service providers and growers on how we can provide value to
their operations in way of tyres,” added Mr Esler.

Agricultural
markets are demanding innovation that supports the reduction in operating
costs, increases in efficiency and higher productivity.   The ATT brand philosophy is grounded in
simple facts that is resonating with local Western Australian customers – keep
it local by always supplying through a local tyre dealer in a town close by.    

“We
were looking for a brand partner who was willing to back our continued push for
Australian local tyre knowledge and innovation.   We will be working with our customers to expand
to meet their demands for size and range,” said Mr Esler.  

“The
Ascenso range is impressive, and we welcome the opportunity to showcase the
range to farmers through our dealer network. 
Our WA team are looking forward the next agricultural field days where
we have all types of requests for unique sized Agricultural tyres, with Ascenso
we are ready to distribute from Perth distribution centre straight to our
locally based tyre dealers.” 

The
brand has big plans for more patterns and more sizes ahead, which will be
developed with the benefits of global agricultural tyre manufacturing expertise
– for scale and from there its clearly all about staying local.  

Australian
Tyre Traders have been delivering innovation and product ranges that are
engineered and selected fit for purpose locally for years.   Now they are just doing it bigger with a
global partner.
