Tetrosyl’s underground batcave

by

A rumour is a powerful tool, and rumours were already circulating that it was Tetrosyl who had stumped up for the MotorMania chain when I went to see the company last week.

We now know of course that those rumours were true, and not for the first time I find myself wondering if the aftermarket grapevine – given its success and accuracy scores in recent months – shouldn’t turn its attention to predicting Euro 2012 scores as well as business moves.

Tetrosyl’s Bury HQ doesn’t look out of place among the other industrial units alongside it. Until, that is, you see what the company has got stashed away underground.

Beyond the wood-paneled boardroom and movie memorabilia (who knew Tetrosyl had appeared in so many films? Everything from the Fast and the Furious Franchise to the latest Men in Black) lies an underground labyrinth of the company’s products.

T-Cut in every shade imaginable, exotic shampoos and metal polishes stock shelf after shelf of this car-care dream. Every brand the Tetrosyl group owns is found down here, and it’s quite a sight.

The company could quite easily install a cash register in the cave and set itself up as the UK’s first underground car accessory retailer.

Now there’s a thought…
