Anthony Naughton has spent his entire life in the tyre industry and now owns the JAX Tyres Forster franchise, having relocated to Tuncurry with his wife and three boys for a “seachange”.
Anthony spent the past three years with a leading wheel and tyre wholesaler but decided to return to JAX Tyres as he believes “JAX are still the premier wheel and tyre retailer in this country”. He has previously had experience managing both the Pymble and Bankstown stores before taking on his own store.
Anthony’s passion for all things automotive stretches to his hobbies as he spent a large portion of his childhood working in a garage with his father and owns family heirloom 1972 Ford Falcon XA GT. “I am very lucky that I can turn my passion into a business” he says. Anthony’s wife Olivia will also be joining the JAX team, looking after the back end of the store.
Most of the team at JAX Forster are long-term with store manager Chris and wheel aligner Aaron moving over from other busy JAX stores. Together, the JAX Forster team have a combined 60 years in the industry.
JAX Forster has the latest in tyre equipment including tyre changing and balancing machines capable of fitting large diameter and runflat tyres along with the latest Hunter wheel alignment machine to ensure accurate results.
JAX Foster’s showroom boasts free WIFI, a state of the art coffee machine, a selection of teas and plenty of seating to make your wait as comfortable as possible. “My family and I are dedicated to looking after the people of the great lakes with the best service and price!” says Anthony.
