p>Wincanton, a leading provider of supply chain solutions in the UK and Ireland, has appointed UK retreader Bandvulc as its tyre supply and tyre maintenance provider following an extensive tender process.

Bandvulc Plus+ will manage the operations, inclusive of all transactions 24/7, administration support and bespoke data reporting.

Phil West, Commercial Director at Bandvulc commented: “Wincanton has long remained a target client of ours and we are absolutely delighted to be awarded such a prestigious contract. It is testament to our staff and our consistency in delivery and response to everything that we do that has enabled this success.
