Our Story

From humble beginnings, as the preferred national supplier of Kumaneko industrial solid forklift tyres to the iconic Beaurepaires network, our steadfast commitment to supplying proven quality product has cemented our reputation for the supply of market-leading brands, outstanding service and expert technical advice that stands the test of time.

Over the years, the company has expanded to become one of the nation’s major suppliers of off road tyres across various market segments – e.g. agriculture, forestry, mining, construction and material handling. Tradefaire is the sole importer for reputable brands that include BKT, Durun, Tong Yong (TY) and Kumaneko. With a sophisticated national distribution network, TFI services every state in Australia and Papua New Guinea.

Tradefaire International has been in the tyre business for over 20 years supplying off road tyres across various market segments including agriculture, forestry, mining, construction and material handling. Going from strength to strength, utilising the experience, knowledge and strong distribution network built over the years, TFI Earthmover was formed to take on the robust mining, construction and quarry sector. Having identified a gap in the earthmoving sector for premium quality OTR tyres, TFI Earthmover’s brands BKT, for radial and bias tyres, and TY Cushion, for resilient tyres, are well placed to fill the need. BKT and TY Cushion both have a strong market presence across the globe with a solid reputation to match. We can guarantee supply of quality OTR tyres that are comparable to many Tier 1 brands and competitive in price.

With a dedicated national sales team and established distribution network across Australia, we are confident TFI Tyres can meet all your OTR requirements.
