Novex Welcomes Dealers to Durban Plant
UK and international Novex dealers were recently given first-hand insight into the production of and technical knowledge behind the tyres they sell. In a visit to the Dunlop Tyres International facility in Durban, South Africa, a selected group of retailers were taken through the stages of manufacture that go into each Novex car and light commercial tyre.
Following its acquisition in April 2006 the Dunlop facility in Durban is now wholly owned by India’s Apollo Tyres. The 252,600 sq ft plant operates around the clock and produces a total of ten thousand tyres each day.
The Novex brand has made inroads into the UK and European markets in recent years, developing a reputation for affordable quality.
