VIS delivered 2 VIS-Polish automated wheel polishing systems to a new customer in Atlanta, Georgia.
VIS, the front runner for heavy duty vehicle, truck and bus safety in the trucking and transportation industry for more than 20 years, has formed a partnership with Atlanta Commercial Tire, an Atlanta, Georgia-based commercial tire dealer. The dealer took delivery of two VIS-Polish automated wheel polishing machines on Thursday, December 14, 2017.
The machines arrived December 14 and were hooked up the same day. The VIS Service team arrived Monday, December 18, 2017, to start training.
“We invested in the VIS-Polish in an effort to provide a quality, consistent product to our customers in a timely manner,” Larry Faulkner, VP of Sales & Marketing for Atlanta Commercial Tire, said. “The VIS-Polish process helps convey a high quality expectation when customers are evaluating their options for wheel polishing. The impressive, professional appearance of the polishing operation coupled with the tremendous finished product puts us in the best position possible to grow our current business and target new business.”
Atlanta Commercial Tire, a full sized service tire company, started in downtown Atlanta more than 45 years ago.
“We provide commercial truck tires with over 50 service trucks in the state of Georgia to get our customers up and running as quickly as possible,” Mr. Faulkner said. “We also have off-the-road tires and service via 4 off the road boom trucks. Atlanta Commercial Tire also sells forklift tires, foam-filled tires and rubber tracks. We have a mobile forklift tire press that allows us to press on forklift tires at our customers’ facilities. Atlanta Commercial Tire has nine locations throughout the state of Georgia and 3 Bandag Retread manufacturing plants. Our additional services include but are not limited to: aluminum wheel polishing, steel wheel refinishing, mounted tire programs, fleet inventory management, fleet inspections and a host of other services related to the tire business.”
Atlanta Commercial Tire strives to be the premier commercial tire service provider in the state of Georgia by offering premium products in the proper applications while keeping in mind the best interest of each individual customer. Their ultimate goal is not to be the lowest price dealer, but instead the lowest cost dealer for any size fleet.
With Atlanta Commercial Tire’s vast array of wheel-end services, VIS knew that the VIS-Polish would be an excellent fit for their business.
“Our VIS-Polish units will be a great addition to the Atlanta Commercial Tire Business,” Mark Keegans, VIS Vice President, said. “We are very excited to start working with this tire dealer. More tire dealers are starting to invest in their business with the VIS-Polish, and we are proud to be working with them.”
Atlanta Commercial Tire will be running their VIS-Polish machines on a newly announced pay per cycle program. Contact VIS to learn more.
