Truck Casings - Import & Export

The company was established in 1985 and has become one of the UK's major and most respected casing dealers. In 1992, the owners of the company, Gary and Harry Short added a Bandag franchise to complement the casing business and now have the introduction of James Short to the company who is in charge of casing enquiries. Allied to a full service capability operating 14 service trucks, G&S Tyre Services Limited now produce and sell over 380 Bandag retreads a week.

G&S import and export casings to and from all parts of the world. Regular shipments are sent to the following locations:

  • South Americas
  • South East & West Africa
  • Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • Caribean

Having developed an excellent reputation for the reliable supply of quality casings G&S Tyre Services Limited have forged established relationships with several major manufacturers with casings being sourced from Goodyear, Dunlop and Michelin.

Other long standing sources mean that G&S Tyre Services Limited supply an excellent range of casings specialising in all major West European brands. Top quality major Japanese brands (Bridgestone, Yokohama and Toyo) are also sourced direct from Japan with containerised shipments being received weekly.

It is recognised at G&S Tyre Services Limited that some markets demand casings of lower grades either as a result of end user application or due to price sensitive pressures. Previous retreads - both pre-cure and hot cure are sourced, often from the major manufactures and all are selected with care by qualified inspectors with 25 years experience. G&S Tyre Services Limited themselves show confidence in these casings by producing and selling many tyres for site and construction applications using these casings in conjunction with Bandag's on/off road treads.

Both Gary and Harry have found the combination of their casing business and the manufacturing of Bandag retreads invaluble in developing an excellent knowledge and awareness of casings and associated technical developments. This means that G&S Tyre Services Limited both buy and sell their casings as a result of their practical experience in selecting casings for their own manufacturing process - experience that they are only to willing to pass on to their current and future customers.

Casing Brands

G&S Tyre Services Limited's experience as a Bandag dealer has enabled them to develop an excellent base of knowledge with regard to most major brands. It has also enabled them to break some of the traditional prejudices that exist within the casing and retreading industries.

They have found that the reliability, consistency and overall standard of casings has improved dramatically over recent years. In the past premium quality retreads were produced using a small range of no more than two of three makes of casings.

Through their experience of producing their own Bandag retreads and the knowledge gained from their excellent relationships with major manufacturers G&S Tyre Services Limited now produce Bandag Premium Retreads on the following makes of high grade casings:

  • Bridgestone
  • Michelin
  • Goodyear
  • Dunlop
  • Pirelli
  • Toyo
  • Yokohama
  • Continental
  • All Eastern European & Chinese casings
