MELTON MOWBRAY, England (June 6, 2013) — Transportation operator Charles Brown & Son Haulage Ltd. has become the first business in England to use Westlake tires for its fleet since Vacu-Lug Tires were used exclusively for the distributorship.
Westlake tires are produced by China's largest domestic tire manufacturer, Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co. Ltd.
Thus far, Charles Brown & Son said it has fitted Westlake units to the steer axles of six Scania tractor units out of its fleet of 16. The company said the tires have performed well, and it will fit the remaining vehicles in its fleet with Westlake tires as replacements become due.
