About us

Ipswich Tyre Centre Ltd was formed in 1982 and is still based at the original location, 37-41 Holywells Road, Ipswich. Ownership of the Company remains unchanged and the same 2 individuals are directly involved with all associated Company’s.

Ipswich Tyre Centre Ltd started in business by supplying and fitting Car Tyres and Exhausts from the site in Ipswich whilst offering a comprehensive mobile service in the supply and fitting of Commercial, Agricultural and Industrial tyres. Having quickly established a loyal and expanding customer base the business began expanding the services it offered to include MOT testing, Servicing, Brakes, Clutches and a full range of Garage Services. The Commercial tyre business also expanded and the Commercial Tyre Fitting vans were soon covering a 20-mile radius of Ipswich.

Having established a sound reputation in Ipswich it was time to expand the operation in to other areas. In the early 90’s both Colchester Tyre & Exhaust Centre Ltd and Stowupland Fast Fit Ltd began trading, based on the same business profile as the operation in Ipswich, both new businesses offered Tyres, Exhausts, MOT testing and the full range of Garage Services coupled with Mobile Commercial, Agricultural and Industrial Tyre fitting.

As an independent business we strive to offer the highest level of Customer Service which, coupled with our combined buying power and our ability to react quickly to changes within our marketplace, meant that by the year 2000 all three businesses were outgrowing the premises they were operating from and it was therefore time for further expansion.

Anglian Truck Tyre Management Ltd was formed in the year 2000 to relieve the pressure from the other depots. The Commercial Tyre business from Ipswich Tyre Centre Ltd, Colchester Tyre & Exhaust Centre Ltd and Stowupland Fast Fit Ltd was all placed under one roof to form a dedicated Commercial depot. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength and now operates 9 fully equipped tyre-fitting vans covering a huge area around the A12 and A14 corridor.

In 2001 Tollgate Tyre & Exhaust Centre Ltd was opened in Bury St Edmunds. Offering Tyres, Exhausts, MOT testing and a comprehensive range of Garage Services as well as operating 3 fully equipped Commercial Tyre fitting vans and 1 dedicated Mobile Car Tyre fitting van. All 5 Companies are constantly looking to progress their respective businesses forward with continued investment in new equipment, vehicles, technology and most importantly our staff. We remain committed to offering the best levels of customer service whilst ensuring we remain competitive in an ever changing marketplace.

The group currently employs over 50 staff.
