ABOUT US

Overview and History of the Company

Awsum Products Pty Ltd, trading as Trade Tyre Distributors is an Australian owned company that distributes all major brands of tyres to retailers. The company operates an independent tyre advisory call centre from Wetherill Park NSW to service its ever increasing customer base.
Awsum Products began in a B.P service station in 1972 as a business owned and operated by members of the Lombardo family. Tyres became very important to the business which was also known as “Andy’s Tyre Service”. In 1984 the company opened a new store at Granville and commenced trading as Ace Tyres. State rail resumed the Granville property in 1994 so the company moved to Smithfield where the business split into retail and wholesale. In the following years the wholesale division, “Trade Tyre Distibutors” grew to become one of the most highly respected independent tyre distributors within New South Wales.

In 2007 the company came under the sole ownership of the current managing director, Andrea (Andy) Lombardo who continues to maintain long held alliances with all major manufacturers. Now the company is directly importing “Evergreen Tires”, “American Eagle wheels”, “Boss wheels”, “MSR wheels” and “Ready Lift suspension components”. This increased product range has helped strengthen our market penetration into country and interstate areas.

 


Current Customer Base

The company’s customers range from small mechanical workshops, major tyre retailers, franchise chains and other wholesalers.

The Australian market is rapidly moving towards franchised based tyre retailing with major brand suppliers controlling the retailing habits of associated groups of tyre retailers.

Trade Tyres prides itself on its ability to source product quickly in response to market trends and customers requirements. We pick up special orders and deliver them on the same run or the next available run, a service which is rarely matched by any major manufacture or distributor.

Our excellent reputation and relationship with major manufactures and our ability to deliver to market segments that are otherwise inaccessible has created a huge need for Trade Tyre Distibutors.
