It carries 65 percent of its freight and 90 per cent of the passenger traffic. All major highways of the country see heavy traffic, therefore the inevitability of demand for service arises. Michelin offers services mostly for the radial tyres, which help in increasing fuel economy by up to 10 %, thus keeping with its commitment to India. Radial tyres are definitely the way of the future, it genuinely reduces the cost of the fleet owner by cutting down the fuel bill and hence the overall expense on the tyres.
At present, MTSC has its presence in 4 cities across the country in the region of Sankari, Patran, Namakkal and Jaipur. Owner of Kisan Tractors and Engine spares, Surinder Bansal stated, that it has been a honor and a pleasurable experience to associate with Michelin Tyres as their junior partner in MTSC. Furthermore a partnership with Michelin makes it possible for him to cater to the potentially huge market of Radial Truck Tyres due to the technology leadership of the company. Laying their hands on the latest machinery coupled with trained staff will enable them to provide the best-in-class tyre related services.
