NI based tyre management company Kerr’s Tyres Group has acquired the Dublin based tyre businesses of the Maher family for an undisclosed sum.
The Maher family businesses have been trading for 45 years in the Greater Dublin area providing service for the construction, truck, car and van sectors trading as; Auto Tyre Services, Rathoath Vulcanising and Tyre Services. Kerr’s Tyres will be rebranding all the business as Auto Tyre Services and will open two additional centres in Donabate, North Dublin and Ballymount, South Dublin in the coming weeks. The Maher family will continue as part of the management team.
The acquisition compliments Kerr’s existing business model which already operates in the Dublin area bringing the Kerr’s Tyre Group up to now operating from 10 centres and decreases their reliance on using sub-contractors for their commercial users. The integration of the two business will bring additional expertise, bespoke services and resources to provide an even better customer experience.
Norman Kerr Kerr’s Tyres Group MD commented “ This is Kerr’s Tyres 2nd acquisition in the last 6 months demonstrating the growth ambitions of the business. The Maher businesses had an excellent reputation and very experienced staff and this will secure Kerr’s geographical presence in the Leinster region. With the uncertainty around Brexit still to be clarified we felt more than ever we had to put a solid foundation in the area to ensure our business and that of our customers kept flowing uninterrupted. We are excited with the opportunities that this will present to us bringing additional infrastructure, securing market share, and combining our expertise for further strategic growth.”
