Nexen Tire America Inc. says its tire distribution capabilities and dealer support functions remain fully operational during COVID-19 crisis.
The company also has created special dealer incentives through its Next Level dealer program “to help extend its support though the economic slowdown and nationwide quarantine associated with the COVID-19 outbreak,” according to company officials.
“Nexen is supporting dealers through the continued operation of (its) call centers, which are still available to provide critical services," including sales support, corporate social responsibility, marketing and "other important functions that are essential to dealers during these challenging times.
“Since the start of the nationwide shelter in place orders, most Nexen Tire dealers vowed to remain open to help all their customers with world-class tire service.
"Those customers, which include the nation’s first responders, healthcare workers and other essential personnel, are still traveling to hospitals, government facilities and other places of employment, and Nexen’s dealers are there to help keep them safe on the road.”
“Like millions of people around the world, everyone in the Nexen Tire family is feeling the effects of this life-changing situation, which includes our tire dealers who are still open for business to help maintain the safety of everyone who still needs to travel during these difficult times,” says John Hagan, executive vice president of sales for Nexen.
“These are tough times, but we are proud to announce our expanded support to dealers through additional incentives in the Next Level program while we all work to recover and heal from this disease. Our dealers are an important part of the Nexen family, and we are proud of their bravery and steadfast support to customers in these difficult times.”
