Leading tyre manufacturer Kumho has continued the expansion of its platinum dealer network in Queensland with the opening of Tread Marx in Bundaberg.

Kumho launched its platinum dealer concept in 2011 with a store in Newcastle, NSW and over the past two and a half years has expanded the program into Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland.

The new Tread Marx store in Bundaberg joins other Queensland Kumho Platinum outlets in suburban Brisbane at Paddington, Capalaba, Wacol and Cleveland along with platinum dealers in Mackay and Rockhampton.

Tread Marx is a family owned and operated business specialising in tyre fitting and mechanical services with a team boasting more than half a century worth of experience between them.

According to Glenn Pearse, Kumho's National Trade Marketing Manager, Tread Marx has the reputation, facilities and exceptional levels of customer service the Kumho platinum dealer program demands.

"Kumho is pleased to welcome Tread Marx team to the platinum dealer program due to its commitment to the Bundaberg region, their expert knowledge and the high levels of customer service," said Glenn Pearse.

"Tread Marx owner and manager Ian Stronach has a hard working, committed team with a strong handle on what customers expect in a tyre dealer as well as customer friendly facilities to match."

"We are pleased to expand the platinum dealer concept in regional Queensland and congratulate Ian Stronach for making the concept a reality," Glenn added.

Ian Stronach and his team are committed to providing the best service and value for money to their customers and Kumho plays a key role in doing this.

"In my experience, Kumho delivers the highest quality tyre at the most affordable price," Ian Stronach said.

"I'm fortunate to have a fantastic team at Tread Marx along with the backing of Kumho."

Tread Marx is located at 106 Takalvan Street, Bundaberg and features off street parking and family friendly waiting areas with tea and coffee facilities and TV.

The store is equipped for all tyre and mechanical services including wheel alignment, brakes, suspension as well as batteries and all work comes with a price and customer service guarantee.

Kumho is a key supporter of the McGrath Foundation and annually stages Pink Fitters day to raise money for the charity. As part of Kumho's affiliation with the McGrath Foundation, Kumho is offering a free McGrath Foundation beach towel with every four new ultra-high performance or SUVs bought at Tread Marx or limited edition shirt with every set of KU22s.
