Ogilvie slashes downtime for customers

Ogilvie Fleet is promoting the cost and time-saving benefits of Michelin CrossClimate+ tyres after helping two of its customers to make the switch.

Michelin CrossClimate+ tyres bring the benefits of both summer and winter tyres

Michelin CrossClimate+ tyres bring the benefits of both summer and winter tyres

Following the success of a CrossClimate trial with Complete Price Eyewear in 2016, Ogilvie Fleet has now helped Wavin, a UK manufacturer of plumbing and drainage products, to fit Michelin CrossClimate+ tyres on all 140 of its company cars after the firm was losing too much time on the road switching between summer and winter fitments.

And the company says it expects other customers to follow suit, making the most of the CrossClimate+ combination of the benefits of a summer tyre for dry and wet braking, energy efficiency and total mileage, along with the braking performance and traction of a winter tyre on cold, wet or snow-covered roads.

Jim Hannah, operations director at Ogilvie Fleet, said: “For most fleets our climate in the UK does not necessitate switching between winter and summer tyres. Yes, some need guaranteed performance year-round, and CrossClimate+ can deliver this.”
