ATS EUROMASTER AWARDED COVETED SUPPLIER STATUS ON GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT SERVICE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT

31 August 2012

After completing a comprehensive tender process ATS Euromaster has been awarded coveted supplier status to public sector organisations across the UK, as part of a multi-brand tyre supply deal on the Government Procurement Service framework agreement RM955.

For the next four years ATS Euromaster is able to supply a full range of car, van, 4x4, truck and agricultural tyres, from premium to budget fitments, to every public sector organisation across the UK, including the nation’s fire engines, ambulances, prison vehicles and local authorities.

The framework has a number of suppliers in each lot, meaning public sector organisations will be able to choose from approved suppliers for their tyre requirements.

“We believe that ATS Euromaster offers the taxpayer the best value for money in tyre supply to keep crucial public sector vehicles on the move,” says Peter Fairlie, Group Sales Director at ATS Euromaster. “In an era of austerity we’re particularly proud to have been appointed to this framework agreement.”

Prior to this new framework agreement, ATS Euromaster was a nominated service partner on the original pan-government tyre sourcing initiative which was first established by the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (NHS PASA) and later led by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC).  This was set-up in 2007 and was available to all public sector organisations across the UK.
