PCL is the first non-tyre company or retailer to join the original 14 companies responsible for forming TyreSafe at the beginning of 2007.
Director Simon Shorter said, “We have been very impressed with the work of TyreSafe during October’s Tyre Safety Month, in particular the focus on tyre pressures, a subject close to our hearts. Surveys have shown that only 11% of drivers are correctly checking the pressure of their tyres. Yet their lives, and those of their passengers, are reliant on the condition of their tyres. As a supplier of tyre inflation equipment we feel it is PCL’s duty to provide reminders and advice about tyre inflation and why it is critical to road safety. By pledging our support for TyreSafe we are reflecting our commitment to promoting the safety and environmental benefits of having correct tyre pressure, and we look forward to working with them.”
“We have achieved a great deal in our first year of activity and are very pleased to have PCL on board who, I am sure, will make a important contribution to the work of TyreSafe in the coming year,” said TyreSafe Chairman Rob Beddis. “Their expertise as a manufacturer of tyre inflation equipment will bring a new perspective to our campaign and help underline our advice look after your tyres and your tyres will look after you.” (Tyres & Accessories/Staffordshire, U.K.)
