Hillhead 2024, the UK's largest quarrying, construction, and recycling exhibition, is held biennially at Hillhead Quarry in Buxton. The event attracts approximately 600 exhibitors and around 18,500 visitors, providing an ideal platform for Goodyear to present its Total Mobility offering. This comprehensive suite includes various products, services, and solutions designed to help off-the-road operations minimise costs, reduce downtime, and maintain productivity.

At Hillhead, Goodyear experts will be available to demonstrate how their range of products and solutions can enhance business efficiency. Central to their display will be the new GP-4D Gen II tyre (750/65R25), specifically designed for articulated dump trucks. This tyre boasts an optimised tread design, multiple steel belt carcass construction, and a unique tread compound. These features contribute to a versatile tread pattern for balanced performance, improved treadwear, and enhanced comfort for the operator.

Additionally, Goodyear will highlight its bespoke tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) technology for heavy-duty vehicles. The Goodyear TPMS Heavy Duty system provides real-time data to help site operators manage tyres, reducing machine downtime and optimising tyre life, operational efficiency, and costs. This system alerts operators and fleet managers to tyre-related issues before they become serious, making it applicable across all major OTR segments, including port operations, underground mining, surface mining, and construction.

Nicola Stopford, Marketing Manager UK&I at Goodyear, expressed enthusiasm about returning to Hillhead: “Goodyear looks forward to exhibiting at Hillhead 2024. It’s a unique exhibition that’s perfect for the Off-the-Road segment of the business. OTR machines operate in some of the most challenging environments, and tyres are an essential component to a business's operating costs, competitiveness and of course sustainability.”

Stopford further highlighted the advantages of their solutions: “Goodyear proactive solutions such as TPMS Heavy Duty can help prevent common tyre inflation loss. What’s more, it’s hugely exciting to have our new GP-4D Gen II tyre on display, which visitors can come and see and learn more about how it can serve their business.”

Attendees of Hillhead 2024 can visit Goodyear at stand U13 to explore their offerings and learn how their products and solutions can enhance operational efficiency in the demanding OTR sector.
