Hamilton Service Centre legend gets tyre capability boost
Arnel Service Centre has been providing comprehensive vehicle care in the heart of Hamilton for two generations. The father of current owner Tony Arnel had the business for 25 years, with Tony taking over the reins nine years ago, returning home after a career in the oil and gas industry in Australia. As Tony says “Everything fell into place”.
“Then, six years ago, a rep told me we should be selling tyres and we got an entry-level changer and balancer to set-up tyre sales.”
After a couple of years, Tony says he saw the growing need for equipment better suited to low profile tyres.
He says his service centre is not “one of those companies that gets through 100 tyres a day.” but he wanted to upgrade to equipment that would be suited to that same kind of throughput.
There was a bit of 'getting to grips with it' when the pallet arrived but his staff are very happy with the product. The helper arm also means no need to use the tyre business down the road. “It gives us the capability to do everything that comes into our shop.”
As the Treadway Equipped team says; “It’s almost like another pair of hands.”
