Modern Tyres hold End User Summer BBQ
On Thursday 22nd June Modern Tyres held an end user summer barbeque at their Duncrue Branch in Belfast.
The evening was a huge success with a turnout of 100 customers attending from across the province with the sun making a very welcome special appearance. There were a few nice trucks on display thanks to DFDS, Northstone, Allen Logistics, TST Transport and Curran Transport. McGimpsey Removals brought along one of their news DAF’s which was used to give truck alignment demonstrations by Mark Reavey from Appaseal using our new Corgi computerized system.
Our reception area was turned into a fully working bar provided by the Dunleath bar in Cookstown where customers were entertained by Luke O’Loan playing a mix of music during the drinks reception.
The Barbeque was prepared by Flamin Outback in Dungannon with a full selection of meat, fish and salads and served in our workshop. With representatives from Bridgestone, Continental and GITI on hand customers had the chance to meet the manufacturers and ask them technical questions about their fleets tyre requirements.
Following the BBQ each of manufacturers then had the opportunity to deliver a short presentation on their current market status and provide any new product updates.
For 2023 Modern Tyres have teamed up with Marie Curie as their charity partner and used the evening as an opportunity to hold a raffle with some fantastic prizes up for grabs the support was amazing and we raised just over £2000.
The headline act of the evening was Tim McGarry who had the whole place in stitches with his comedy act.
Luke O’Loan kicked back into action with some great music and a few night caps to finish a lovely evening.
