Tyre Protector History

paul butterworthIt took many years of research, development and testing before Tyre Protector was made available to the public in June, 2003. Paul Butterworth, Tyre Protector's CEO and managing director has many years of experience in the commercial vehicle industry and was unhappily familiar with the poor performance of similar products.

Paul’s objective was to produce the most effective sealant product available and when the managing director of Continental in Norway described Tyre Protector as "astonishing" he knew that he had reached that objective.

Throughout the development stages, Paul remained committed and worked with some of the leading chemists in the UK and commercial tyre users around the world ensuring that Tyre Protector addressed all of the shortcomings of similar products and outperformed them in every way.

Having the vision and foresight to see the enormous potential in this rapidly growing industry Paul dedicated himself to building a successful global business based on the highest standards of honesty and integrity. The business was initially developed through Franchising but straightforward distribution is now the favoured approach.

The results of Paul’s efforts have surpassed his expectations and in less than six years Tyre Protector is available in over forty countries.

Protection for Commercial Vehicle TyresIn 2005 Tyre Protector was awarded ISO 9001 accreditation. This Internationally recognised, prestigious award for quality is an International Standard, in use worldwide as the benchmark for Quality.

Tyre Protector now receives frequent recognition and accreditation from around the world and is used extensively by government departments, the military, emergency service vehicles, plant, construction, mine and agricultural vehicles, commercial vehicles, taxis private motorists and motorcyclists.

In fact Tyre Protector is suitable and beneficial to the users of almost every pneumatic tyre.

The rest is history...
