Hankook Tyre UK wins award

Hankook Tyre UK was announced as the winner of the Tyre Manufacturer Award at the TyreSafe annual awards held at St. George’s Park in Staffordshire. The Awards recognise the achievements of those who have excelled in their initiatives to increase awareness of tyre safety over the past twelve months.

Hankook Tyre UK Ltd was presented with the high sought-after award by the sponsor, Highways England along with Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, in recognition of its campaign to raise awareness and educate UK drivers on the importance of tyre safety. It followed the findings of commissioned research into the nation’s attitude to tyre safety, which revealed four out of five drivers don’t know the legal minimum depth of tyre tread, and 1 in 10 Brits ignore their tyres completely.

Stuart Lovatt, Strategic Road Safety Lead of Highways England, explained: “Competition among the entries this year was particularly fierce with scoring consistently close. Appropriately enough, the winner actually achieved the highest score of any across all categories this year. Hankook presented a detailed campaign with identified results and evidence of large impact and great commitment; the worrying survey results are something on which we all should build on.”

Zoe Baldwin, Marketing Manager of Hankook Tyre UK Ltd, said “We are delighted to have won this highly sought-after award, and it is an honour to be recognised for all the hard work that went into the campaign. We will continue to raise awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance and the dangers to motorists of defective and illegal tyres. The role of online channels is crucial in spreading the tyre safety message and provides a unique means of engaging with audiences. I would like to congratulate The Motor Ombudsman for being named as the winner of the Online and Social Media Award at the 2019 TyreSafe Awards.”
