Market demand for Michelin X One wide single truck tires is prompting unprecedented growth in the service network that offers Michelin products, says the company. The 180 member travel plazas, truck stops and shop facilities affiliated with the Professional Transportation Partners, LLC (PTP) were officially included in Michelin’s “wherever you go” revolution effective Sept. 1, resulting from the signing of a marketing agreement between Michelin and PTP, company officials announced.
“We have been doing great business for years with many individual PTP locations,” said Guy Pekle, vice president of sales, Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “This agreement allows us to translate the success that we have built with individual truck stops to the entire PTP network across the continent. PTP has developed a standard for service to the trucking community that we admire, and we are confident that this joint marketing agreement is going to benefit their member truck stops as well as our joint fleet customers.”
“Michelin is bringing innovative technology to the marketplace in the form of tires that save fuel, save weight, or just plain run longer than any other tires in the marketplace,” said Michael Gay, director of shop programs, PTP. “We’ve received plenty of positive feedback from individual members about doing business with Michelin. We are pleased to expand the business opportunities to all of our members through this agreement.”
