MIDRAND, South Africa – 19 March 2020 – TYRES & MORE®, a leading national chain of automotive fitment centres, and a division of TiAuto Investments (PTY) Ltd., today announced that as part of its efforts to help reduce the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), it has implemented stringent cleaning and hygiene protocols at its fitment centres, countrywide.
“Accordingly, all TYRES & MORE® store managers and staff have been trained and equipped with the necessary tools to ensure that surfaces in high-contact areas are thoroughly cleaned at frequent intervals throughout the day, in keeping with new heightened cleaning protocols, based on guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO),” said Alex Taplin, CEO of TiAuto Investments (PTY) Ltd.
The company has also rolled out emergency kits consisting of manual hand sanitiser dispensers and sanitising spray to all fitment centres.
