LYDNEY, England (Jan. 5, 2010)—Industrial tire and wheel company Watts Tyre Group has launched an international service business called Interfit.
Interfit serves as a repositioning in the industrial tire service market by formally creating a dedicated, specialist service division, the company said. Interfit will service the forklift truck market through its depot and mobile press operation acting as a service partner to the OEM dealer networks.
Customers will be managed through regional offices in the United Kingdom, France and Germany where administrative functions and local service desks are based.
Permia Group Ltd., a consortium owned by three former executives of the company, purchased Watts Tyre last year. The firm's tires are made in Sri Lanka, China and Brazil.
