A FAMILY business is growing with the addition of its new tyre equipment centre.

Carlisle-based family business K&S McKenzie Ltd, a motor factory run by brothers Stuart and Alastair McKenzie, has operated in Carlisle for more than 50 years.

The company says this latest addition enhances its service offering and is aimed at local companies that manage their own fleet of vehicles, trucks, or plant machinery plus garages offering tyre sales and repairs.

"Our staff are a huge part of who we are as a business and so it is great to have an opportunity to develop their skillset. As such as have provided extensive training to our team.

"We are all really pleased to be opening the new Tyre Equipment Centre and to sharing it with our customers over the coming weeks and months.”

K&S McKenzie doubled in size back in 2020 when it opened the new tool centre in the city.

Despite this coinciding with the start of the pandemic, the business continued to thrive and it is hoped their latest venture will open up further opportunities for additional growth and local employment opportunities.
