It all began in 2002 with the formation of the Tyre24 GmbH by Michael Saitow. The company runs with its online trade platform www.tyre24.de the interface between tyre wholesale and retail. Meanwhile, the portal has grown into a pooling of about 450 tyre and wheel wholesalers and manufacturers from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Austria and Poland.
In Germany alone, approx. 30,000 tyre retailers, car dealerships and garages use the online platform for procurement of tyres, rims and tuning accessories. After expanding to Poland (www.tyre24.pl) in 2005, the platform also started its business activities in Austria (www.tyre24.at) and France (www.tyre24.fr) in 2010, followed by Spain, Italy and the United States in 2012. Further more, as a part of the internationalization, an access to other European markets, including Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands could be achieved. For this purpose, numerous franchise-partnerships between European partners and Tyre24 were concluded.
In March 2007, the Tyre24 GmbH initiated the end customer portal www.reifen-vor-ort.de in Germany, where the end customer can compare the tyre retailers in his or her region concerning price offered and performance as well as regarding the distance to his or her place of residence. In 2007, the advertising agency mnDesign was taken over. Ever since it has been responsible for all advertising activities of the group of companies.
On 1 July 2009 a new business field was added with the purchase of the wheel manufacturer AZEV. The AZEV Alurad GmbH produces rims on demand, only after receipt of the orders. Therefore, all alloy wheels of the current range of products are available for all common and exotic vehicles. Furthermore, in 2009 the Reifenwelt Medien- und Verlagsgesellschaft mbH was founded publishing the highest-circulation newspaper of the industry with 19,000 printed copies. At the end of 2010, the Tyre24 Automotive GmbH & Co. KG, the property ownership company of the Tyre24 group of companies was established. The property ownership company takes care to manage the administration of the individual real estate and the letting of office area to external companies.
In 2012 the Tyre24Group purchased the IT company MONDO MEDIA eBusiness-Systems GmbH as part of a succession plan. With this acquisition, the Tyre24Group could strengthen its own competence in the field of shop systems.
The Tyre24 group of companies consists of a team of 150 employees with many ideas, comprehensive expert knowledge, many years of experience and a passionate devotion to their work. The Tyre24Group is headquartered in Kaiserslautern.
