Magog, Quebec, February 2, 2016 – Camso – formerly Camoplast Solideal – has acquired long-time client, Southern Industrial Tyres Ltd., in a strategic effort to strengthen its Material Handling tire distribution and service business in the UK.

Located in Kent, just one hour from London’s City centre, Southern Industrial Tyres has built a great reputation by having a fully self-sufficient on-site service for fleet checks, tire fitment, professional wheel exchange, foam filling and puncture proofing, as well as environmental disposal.

“We will continue to build upon the more than forty years of dedicated, professional and passionate service that Southern Industrial Tyres customers have come to expect, for all their industrial tire needs,” concludes Fossey.
