Motorway Tyres factory closes
Reported last week in the Stawell Times-News, owners of Motorway Tyres will close down the tyre remoulding business in Stawell.
Motorway Director, Jason Bresnehen said that the business had experienced difficult trading conditions over the past several years, primarily due to growing and sustained competition from low priced imported tyres, significant price increases of rubber and increased distribution costs as a result of fuel price rises.
Motorway Tyres was founded at Stawell in 1932. Over the past 70 years the business developed to become a manufacturer and distributor of rubber tyre products to the taxi, passenger and truck market.
