Mega Tyres is a family business run by Paul Graham and his father-in-law Steve Thomas. Paul has been in the earthmover tyre business for the last 12 years, whilst Steve has recently taken early retirement from the University of Wales, where he was a lecturer in Information Technology. The company is based in Ceredigion west Wales where Steve's great-grandfather first opened an agricultural merchant's store and Post Office in 1883 (pictured right). Steve and his family live in that very same house today, thus ensuring that the family has remained in business in the same village without break, for almost 130 years.
Paul’s interest in tyres started when he was a young boy helping out in the fitter’s yard. He has since worked his way up through the ranks, from fitting large OTR tyres through to global procurement and for the last 12 years selling earthmover tires to the mining industry worldwide. He is involved in the day to day running of Mega Tyres and is usually the first point of contact for enquiries.
Steve’s background is in the construction industry, with over 25 years experience in property development. After retiring early he gained a First-class honours degree in Information Technology and went on to lecture in University for five years. He has since teamed up with Paul to run Mega Tyres and is in charge of customer accounts. The rest of his time is spent visiting clients and other tire dealers.
