Trelleborg Launches Interfit Website Designed to Make Ordering and Fitting of Forklift Tires Easy

AKRON, OH--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) -  Trelleborg Wheel Systems, the world's leading producer of solid industrial tires, announced the launch of the Interfit USA website today. This website is designed to enable consumers to buy forklift tires and also plan the fitting of them.

The Interfit website is easy to use and does not require tire consumers to have any knowledge of tires. By logging onto www.interfit-usa.com and selecting the "find forklift tires" tool, customers are asked some basic information on their forklift and average hours of usage. A list of available tires is then provided. After the tire is selected, the consumer is walked through scheduling and payments of the tires. The ordering process takes a matter of minutes to complete.

Jason Canning, Program Manager, says: "The internet has changed the way we purchase goods. The array of products we are able to purchase online has exploded. We believe forklift tires should be no different. Through our 500 plus nationwide Interfit authorized service providers we will be providing consumers with the ability to purchase our tires installed on their vehicles for the very first time."

"Using the proper tire can keep a forklift in service longer and reduce maintenance costs. Interfit is another example of how we are focused on providing the best Total Value of Ownership. We are giving tire consumer the tools they need to make an educated tire purchase. We believe that the forklift is the most important machine on earth."

Trelleborg Wheel Systems is the preferred tire supplier for the world's leading original equipment Manufacturers. The company specializes in premium brands including Monarch Press-On tires, Monarch M2, Elite XP and Expert.
