Independent and chain garages in Britain, mainland Europe, North America and East Asia are supplied with tyres and other spare car parts by Mr Tyre, which was established in 1972. The company now has 24 depots in England, including a 100,000 sq ft wholesale centre at its Birmingham headquarters. Founder and chairman Arwyn Williams says that the business benefited from the recession, saying that when new-car purchases slumped drivers instead chose the cheaper option of refurbishing their vehicles. The company’s international sales grew by 104% a year, from £1.2m in 2007 to £5.1m in 2009.
