Kwik Fit has agreed a three-year contract to be the sole supplier of tyres and associated products to leasing and fleet management company SG Fleet.
The UK arm of Australia-based SG Fleet Group manages more than 13,000 company cars and vans.
Factors said to have won Kwik Fit the contract include: a seven-day week service with long opening hours; the nationwide availability of its mobile fitting service; and a comprehensive tyre management solution tailored to fleet tyre policy.
SG Fleet operations director Chris Joyce said: "The Kwik Fit brand is extremely well-known by our fleet operator and driver communities.
"Its national centre coverage coupled with widespread mobile coverage means that SG Fleet is able to provide customers with a comprehensive one-stop shop facility.
"Previously SG Fleet has had separate suppliers for different aspects of the business, but our marketplace review identified that Kwik Fit had the capability to be a one-stop service provider for tyres, brakes and associated products including MOTs. That ensures a straight-forward solution for our customer base."
Kwik Fit GB fleet sales director Andy Fern said: "Kwik Fit is naturally delighted to win the contract with SG Fleet, which further cements our status as the major provider of tyres and related services to the UK's leading vehicle contract hire and leasing companies.
"Kwik Fit continues to focus on delivering a range of flexible services to all of its customers through its UK-wide network of centres and its mobile operation.
"We will continue that momentum and deliver on our commitment to provide a first-class level of service."
