Background of point S and South Africa

point S was establishment in 1971 in France. Since then all the network members have shared the same objective; to promote their status of tyre specialists and professionals, while staying totally independent from any tyre manufacturer or financial fund. So while each point S member remains an independent entrepreneur point S offers an attractive and modern retail concept which can be adapted to any point-of-sale and business area. 
 
point S continued its globalisation policy with its establishment on the African continent through a partnership with the South African buying group Unity Tyre Trading (Tyre Alliance). Tyre Alliance was created in 2009 and is composed of 11 independent members owning 18 points-of-sales. The Alliance was drawn to point S because of the similar value system and great programme and concept that they have developed over 42 years of using the knowledge and experience of tyre dealers from across the world. 
 
Africa is ready for Point S, because they developed a model that would protect the individuality of the member and allow him to be entrepreneurial while still having the strength and protection of a group behind him. The point S concept not only focuses on all the services and products offered by the members in South African but internationally includes even more products and services that could benefit the local members. With point S the member’s clout in terms of buying power and negotiation is greatly enhanced. 
 
Through the enormous size of the group the full package can be implemented at a cost lower than most of the competitor networks with a much smaller value package. This makes the point-S concept affordable and accessible to all the sectors of the South African market and population adding value and benefit to small and large dealerships.
