Customised promotional model vehicle specialists, Search Impex, are pleased to announce the release of a 1:50 scale Mercedes Benz Sprinter van, customised in the striking livery of well established Scottish tyre supplier, R & J Strang Tyre Services Ltd.
Commissioned to celebrate the Company’s 20th anniversary, the models will be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Collectibles as a certificated Limited Edition.
Having started his working life at the age of 15 as a tyre fitter, Robert Strang worked through the ranks from fitter to salesman, to manager and then on into regional sales management. The breadth of experience gained from the different roles over the years enabled Robert Strang to spot major opportunities to improve customer service and so, back in 1995, he decided to set up his own business. With “exceptional service” as the core philosophy for the business, Robert started up from a rented unit in Cadzow Road Haulage’s yard in Hamilton. Hard work and determination saw the business grow steadily and it soon began to receive enquiries from potential customers further afield. This proved to be the catalyst for opening a second branch in Broxburn. A third branch, further north, followed as a result of a Dundee based fleet operator asking R&J Strang to provide a full tyre service for their fleet and most recently, the Company will be opening a forth location in Irvine.
From a one man band, a rented unit and a van, the passage of 20 years has seen R & J Strang Tyre Services grow to become a major player in Scotland’s tyre services sector. The business now has four main branches (Hamilton, Broxburn, Irvine & Dundee), 35 employees and 25 mobile roadside service vans. Here’s to the next 20 years!
The models are now available from search Impex and are priced at £36.95 each (including UK delivery & VAT).
