Tyre firm Bohle UK Ltd has been renamed Schwalbe Tyres UK Limited – or Schwalbe UK for short.
The firm started life as ‘Double J (Midlands) Ltd’ in 1985, set up to specialise in the supply of parts to the wheelchair and bicycle industries. It was set up by its present MD Philip Taylor and his brother, whose background was in bicycle manufacture.
Expansion of the business prompted a move in 1990 to new offices and a 18,000 sq ft industrial unit on a 2.5 acre site. Five years later the company was renamed ‘Bohle UK Limited’ when Ralf Bohle GmbH purchased it.
Further business expansion saw Bohle UK move to a purpose-built, ultra-modern facility in Telford in 2008. Storage capacity was upped by a third, with sufficient land on site to be expanded by another 50 per cent as required. Presently it can store up to 5000,000 tyres and 1.4 million tubes.
Finally, the company has renamed again.
