AUSTRALIAN owned and operated for more than 40 years, Jewell Tyres has developed a reputation as one of the country’s leading independent suppliers of mining and earthmover OTR (off the road) tyres.
Expanding from humble beginnings in regional Victoria, Jewell Tyres have constantly evolved and adapted to provide innovative service solutions to a variety of clients, and now buys and sells tyres on behalf some of the world’s biggest mining companies.
As an independent supplier, Jewell Tyres can source all brands, sizes, patterns and compounds of large and specialty tyres, however, increasingly large operators are turning to Jewell Tyres to provide strategic procurement and surplus stock dispersal services.
Jewell Tyres’ advantage comes from an extensive network of machinery suppliers and dismantlers, tyre wholesalers and traders, mines, quarries and other end users, both in Australia and in key international locations. These contacts have allowed Jewell Tyres to build and continually update an unrivalled database of OTR tyre availability, and directly market surplus tyres to end users that are most likely to purchase.
Supporting this infrastructure is Jewell Tyres’ admirable approach to customer relationships, with “personal service, reliability, back-up & support” being the company’s driving mantra. To this end, managing director and owner David Jewell explained that it is integral for mining operators and contractors to maintain good working relationships with their regular tyre suppliers and service agents, and it is therefore imperative for Jewell Tyres to work with these key stakeholders rather than compete with them. In this way, long-term productivity can be maintained whilst still capitalising on the opportunities of the global tyre spot-market.
Another example of Jewell Tyres’ commitment to positive customer outcomes is its approach to ensuring all tyres sold are fit for their intended purpose. Having worked onsite in some of Australia’s most hostile mining environments, Jewell Tyres insists on understanding the unique operating conditions of each customer to ensure the right solutions are supplied for the specific application.
With their experience, unmatched networks and service-oriented approach, it is little wonder Jewell Tyres is the preferred strategic procurement partner for under-allocated stock to some of the most notable mining companies. The company also regularly liquidates surplus tyre inventories no longer required by mine operators and contractors.
