Our company values:
We are highly ethical, genuine and trustworthy. We keep our promises and we always hold ourselves accountable for our work and how it is achieved.
We are respectful collaborators and communicators, treating others in ways we want to be treated. We recognise everyone’s contributions and understand we achieve better results as a diverse committed team than as individuals.
We are committed to driving exceptional business results and taking personal pride in everything we do. We have an enthusiasm for learning and growth, and we simply want to be and do our best by becoming better individuals each day.

Community at the core
Community is at the heart of the business. Through our owned brand Davanti Tyres, we have established partnerships with some of the biggest names in sport, right on our doorstep. By proudly sponsoring Wigan Warriors and Everton Football Club, we have built strong community connections among fans and most importantly, we’ve been able to give back to the local people through charitable outreach programmes and CSR initiatives connected to the clubs.
Our charitable contributions also extend out to local grassroot clubs, and initiatives close to the hearts of our staff and customers.
We’re also establishing a community on an international scale, while committing to becoming a more sustainable business. Through environmental organisation Ecologi, we are working to offset our fleet emissions with the ultimate goal of becoming the first climate positive tyre wholesaler.
