Leading tyre manufacturer Kumho has relaunched its national network of specialist truck and commercial vehicle tyre dealers, Kumho Komplete.

The Kumho Komplete network comprises 80 specialist dealers around Australia offering strong technical support, re-treading services and extensive commercial vehicle knowledge.

According to Harvey Hawes, manager of truck and commercial tyres at Kumho Tyres Australia, the Kumho Komplete dealer network offers commercial vehicle operators the convenience of a trusted network offering the entire Kumho commercial vehicle tyre range along with the expertise and knowledge to meet the demands of today's heavy vehicle operation.

"It's important for commercial vehicle operators to be able to access a specialist truck tyre dealer who understands the needs of commercial operators no matter where that might be in Australia," said Harvey Hawes.

"All of our Kumho Komplete dealers around Australia understand trucks and truck tyres and the importance of keeping trucks on the road and minimising downtime,"

The Kumho Komplete network allows operators to have truck tyres fitted at any Kumho Komplete dealer and bill them to their company's Kumho account, making it easier for drivers to keep the rig rolling no matter where they are in Australia.

"There is nothing more frustrating or costly to business than having a vehicle stranded with a tyre issue.

"The program allows drivers to focus on maintaining their rigs and doing what they do best without having to worry about the costs of tyre maintenance while away from the depot.

"A Melbourne based driver can go to a Kumho Komplete dealer in Sydney, have work carried out and have the bill picked up by their employer because of a centralised Kumho Komplete account.

"Kumho Komplete is structured around operators and is all about providing convenient, expert service for Kumho truck tyre customers around Australia." Harvey Hawes added.

Since its inception in 1960, Kumho Tyres has been a model of steady growth amid dramatic changes of business landscape. Driven by innovation in management and technical development Kumho has become one of the top ten tyre companies in the world.

Over the past half-century Kumho Tyres has built the foundation for a sustainable company, which has thrived through a full range of business environments.

Kumho has succeeded in the development of superior tyres for all vehicles including high performance, passenger, sports utility and recreational vehicles, as well as light trucks, heavy truck and buses, industrial, agricultural, mining and construction vehicles as well as aircraft.

Kumho produces more than 68 million tyres annually with a massive research and development program, which comprises more than 600 research personnel and 300 testing machines at proving grounds in South Korea, China, Europe and North America. Kumho leads the world with the latest in tyre technology, safety and performance.
