– By Victoria Nelson –
Recently a chance meeting on a plane between the representatives of two well known family owned businesses has lead to a commercial partnership that will see both brands reaching the most remote and scenic parts of Australia.
Bob Jane Corporate and Supreme Caravans have entered into an agreement for the supply of the locally developed and tested Bob Jane Jtrax all terrain 4X4 tyres. The JTrax brand is part of the private label range sold nationally by Bob Jane T-Marts which also includes the Bob Jane All Rounder and Xenon passenger car tyres.
Supreme Caravans selected the Bob Jane Jtrax pattern after an extensive evaluation and tender process. It will be fitted to all Supreme and Leader Caravans as original equipment from the 1st January 2019.
The selection of a leading private label tyre will deliver benefits to Supreme caravan customers because all Bob Jane private label products (Bob Jane All Rounder, Xenon and Jtrax) are covered by an exclusive Road Hazard Warranty. And they are supported by national network of Bob Jane T-Marts.
Located in Melbourne, Supreme Caravans is a family owned business that has been operating for over 30 years and one of the industries leading manufacturers producing 1,000+ vans each year. They offer off-road, semi-off road, touring and luxury models with a large range of layouts to suit any customer request. With a reputation among 4WD drive enthusiasts for quality and toughness the range can be viewed at one of the 40 caravan and camping shows nationally where the vans are on display.
“It’s a great opportunity for two well known Australian brands to work together providing quality products and a national after sales support network to Supreme and Leader Caravan owners. We all know caravans travel and the ability to meet their needs nationally is paramount,” said Chris Beattie, National Fleet Manager at Bob Jane.
“And the Bob Jane private label products cover 75 sizes across all popular vehicle segments including passenger, SUV and 4WD, so we can cover all fleets big or small. Plus, the All Rounder, Xenon Z7 and Jtrax tyres come with a Road Hazard Warranty which helps Fleet Managers reduce tyre costs.”
Michael Prosenik, General Manager at Supreme Caravans, said, “It’s an exciting time to be associated with a well known respected Australian brand in Bob Jane T-Marts. The ability to provide a great quality product and ongoing national support network for caravan owners and their tyre needs is a fantastic opportunity for all involved.”
