Tyre business is in the blood

NEW Bundaberg Beaurepaires manager Evan Mangin says tyres are in his blood.

Mr Mangin, who took over the Beaurepaires job recently, has been in the tyre business since 1984.

"After 26 years I still enjoy working in the industry," he said.

"I've had a lot to do with tyres over the years and I've built up a lot of knowledge about them."

Mr Mangin said he now considered himself a local after having lived in Bundaberg for 10 years and he hoped to steer the local Beaurepaires outlet to bigger and better things in Bundaberg in future.

"We are offering better service and hopefully we can increase the product range as well," he said.

"Our main goal is to get even better.

"We want to maintain and increase our efficiency wherever possible through good customer service."

Mr Mangin said the Bundaberg Beaurepaires offered a wide range of services to its customers.

That included supplying and servicing the complete range of tyres, from wheelbarrows to large tractors.

Mr Mangin said they had two on-road trucks on 24-hour call, concentrating mainly on the farming and trucking community.

"We also supply batteries, wheel alignments and steering suspension," he said.
