Kerr's Tyres Announces 14 New Jobs & A New Tyre Centre in Newtownards

2 December 2014

As part of an ongoing growth and expansion plan, Kerr's Tyres has today announced 14 new jobs across their Antrim, Belfast, Coleraine and soon to open Newtownards tyre centres. 

Following an investment of more than £1,000,000 in the business, the jobs will range from tyre fitters, breakdown fitters, mechanics, mobile mechanics, apprentices, IT personnel and assistant managers.

Kerr's Tyres is committed to providing a wide range of tyre options for all customers, whether they are large fleet operators, small businesses or private individuals looking for the right tyres for their car. The additional jobs and expansion will also allow the company to invest further in the first-rate customer service which customers of Kerr's Tyres have come to expect. As a local, family run business Kerr's Tyres is focused firmly on delivering the right level of service at the right price and in the right way.

An exciting development for the company is the opening of a new Tyre Centre in Newtownards in the New Year. The new tyre centre, the 4th for Kerr's Tyres in Northern Ireland and 7th for the company across all of UK, will stock a wide range of tyres, batteries & exhausts, MOT checks, wheel balancing & alignment, along with a number of after market supplies, such as Alloy Wheels.

Announcing the new jobs, Norman Kerr, Managing Director of Kerr's Tyres, said: "We have experienced sustained growth in the business in recent years and following a review of our business plan we have decided that the time is right to invest in further growth and expansions for the business. We are particularly pleased to announce the opening of a new Tyre Centre in Newtownards to serve the Ards & North Down areas in the New Year."

Recent months have seen Kerr's Tyres announce large fleet contracts with the likes of Hannon Transport, Montgomery Transport and the Henderson Group, implement customers services training for all employees in the company and this recent investment of more than £1,000000 will see Kerr's Tyres establish themselves further as one of Northern Ireland's leading tyre distributors.
