The British Tyre Manufacturers’ Association (BTMA) represents tyre manufacturers and retreaders supplying the UK market from factories in Europe.
BTMA engages actively with government, stakeholders and the media to progress issues ranging from road safety to sustainability and from international competitiveness to employee health and safety.
BTMA members supply two-thirds of the tyres on UK roads and are committed to further improving road safety and reducing the environmental impact of road transport.
BTMA actively co-operates with other UK tyre industry trade associations though the Tyre Industry Federation and is an affiliate member of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. BTMA is also a strong supporter of TyreSafe, the road safety charity.
In co-operation with the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA) BTMA is active in shaping future regulation aligned with society’s priorities whilst assuring a level playing field for all players. This includes not only the drafting of new Regulations but also their effective communication and fair enforcement.
BTMA also works in close collaboration with the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) to provide authoritative guidance on the optimal care and use of tyres to maximise safety, performance and longevity. BTMA guidance is widely respected for being fact-based and commercially neutral.
