Agricultural Tyre Brand goes from strength to strength in the UK
The Ascenso factory in Panoli, Gujarat, India has an enormous stock of tyres ready to send with very short lead times as well as the best container ordering programme of any manufacturer. The factory produces over 350 tyre patterns across their range of agricultural, industrial, construction, earthmover and forestry tyres, with 326 of these patterns already stocked in the UK or on order to the UK in coming weeks. On average, Ascenso releases over fourteen new sizes each month with their Rowcrop range recently released and VF technology planned for 2023.
BAB Distribution currently have over 5000 Ascenso tyres in stock or on order to the UK and have offered reduced pricing on Ascenso tyres throughout 2022, something which has benefitted many consumers financially with the recent price increases we have seen across the agricultural tyre industry, with further reductions on key sizes in September. Ascenso offers market leading pricing as well as quality, offering incredible warranties on their tyres - 7 years warranty on radial tyres and 5 years on crossply – which just shows the confidence Ascenso have in their tyres.
The team at BA Bush and Ascenso Tyres UK officially launched the brand through their stand at LAMMA 2022, where they received a great response from farmers, contractors and dealers. Since the event Ascenso has seen an uplift in awareness and popularity of the brand in the UK, gaining positive feedback from customers.
“As a large farming company which runs 150+ tractors, we tested leading makes of tyres on our tractors to see which came out best on hours to save money on our fleet. In August 2021 we fitted two 420/70R28 Ascenso on a John Deere leading in tractor used for all road work. We checked these again in January 2022, having done 842 hours on them and they still had 31mm of tread left. This means these tyres have already outperformed other premium tyre brands by a good number of hours and will lead to fantastic savings on our fleet tractors. As a result, we had a meeting regarding which tyre make to fit in 2022 and agreed to fit Ascenso.”
