TruckForce - Godyear Tyres' 24-hour commercial support network - has opened a new base of operations in Southampton.
The network, which consists of a combination of Goodyear Dunlop equity-owned hubs and independent service providers, offers truck tyre servicing and breakdown assistance throughout the UK.
The new operation will service vehicles in the Southampton, Portsmouth, Andover and Salisbury areas, and will initially open with six vans and technicians.
TruckForce says that by 2019, the service will have extended to also cover Brighton, Bournemouth and Poole.
Chris Suttle, TruckForce regional manager, said: “TruckForce’s success hinges on having the right people and providing the best service and assets for our customers.
"Our new location in Southampton is an exciting embodiment of the success and growth that we have achieved to date, and we are immensely proud of the journey that we have been on so far."
The hub is the first new TruckForce location since 2006, adding to the group’s 12 existing service sites throughout the UK.
