Tyreplus, one of the world’s largest one-stop centres for car maintenance services with more than 2,000 stores in 17 countries, has launched its first outlet in Singapore.
Nestled in Wave9, Woodlands Industrial Park, its flagship outlet offers a wide range of premium, mid-range and budget car services, including tyre changing and repairs, lubrication; wheel balancing; wheel alignment; alloy wheel maintenance; battery change; vehicle servicing; oil change; brake servicing; and air-condition servicing.
“Michelin is committed to offering both individuals and corporate car owners the tyre safety they deserve,” says Chan Hock Sen, Country Director of Michelin Singapore. “This strategic partnership with Hock Tyre Group has enabled us to bring Tyreplus into Singapore. This is Tyreplus’s first master franchise in Southeast Asia. The mechanics would receive standardised training and would be audited periodically to ensure that they deliver consistent and quality service. Singaporean consumers now have a new choice when it comes to trustworthy automotive care and tyre services.”
“With the launch of Tyreplus in Singapore, we aim to raise the profile of the car servicing industry through the adoption of advanced technologies and procedures that adhere to international standards. Individuals and corporate car owners could come to Tyreplus and get detailed report so that they know exactly the problems and troubleshooting services they are paying for. We aim to open more outlets so that our consumers could visit Tyreplus within 15 minutes’ drive,” says Tay Ming Wah, Chairman of Hock Tyre Group.
High-calibre technicians perform safety check procedures that comply with international standards
As part of Tyreplus's focus on driver and passenger safety, the company’s trained and experienced technicians follow a comprehensive Safety Check Points list that is used by specialists in 17 different countries. Armed with this list, they are able to address any needs and concerns of the customers and ensure that work is delivered to the highest standards. All customers would receive this free check when they sign up for any of Tyreplus's services.
First commercial automotive care specialist in Singapore to use Groove Glove
A laser-powered instrument, Groove Glove measures tyre tread depth by taking thousands of readings across the face of the tyre, and from shoulder to shoulder. Buoyed by 120 proprietary algorithms, the hand-held device is said to provide detailed, scientifically-derived cross-sectional wear information. Customers could retrieve their tyre health reports via a weblink or by scanning a given QR code. The report projects braking distance and immediately advises drivers if they need to adjust their tyres’ suspension alignment; or if a tyre change is required. With this revolutionary technology, every tyre technician in Tyreplus is transformed into a tyre specialist.
