Welcome to 2021! After a difficult year, we can hopefully look forward to new beginnings, especially with the welcome onset of various vaccine programmes which are beginning to roll out across the world. Notwithstanding, the long-term effects of the global pandemic on public health and business, will be long and far reaching. Domestically, the casualties which continue to mount across every business sector, are harrowing to watch. The tyre business has been equally affected, with several store closures being reported and players from all industry sectors scrambling to find ways to remain relevant and sustainable.
With this in mind, the SA TREADS team has pledged to provide the South African trade sector with as much support as possible. The SA TREADS Digital magazine, (a bi-monthly publication), and the SA TREADS International Tyre Portal (featuring fresh stories daily, beginning tommorow), together with our social media channels (facebook, twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn), will continue to provide industry members with regular business news relating to the domestic and global tyre business. In addition, the South African tyre press will continue to provide coverage on your new products and campaigns, so please make use of these mediums. Our reach extends far beyond the industry, to the man on the street, as well as to the influential fleet operator.
We look forward to being of service!
Best of luck for the new year ahead and stay safe everyone!
The SA TREADS team
