MRF Joins Rubber Group’s Panel of Associates
The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) has released a statement outlining the addition of India’s largest tyremaker, MRF, to the Group’s Panel of Associates. The Wembley based IRSG, an intergovernmental organisation providing a forum for the discussion of issues affecting the supply and demand of both natural and synthetic rubber, stated it was “pleased to have MRF as one of its members, thereby expanding the good cooperation with the Indian rubber sector, one of the major growth areas in the world.”
The IRSG Panel of Associates includes a number of global tyre majors, including Bridgestone, Goodyear, Pirelli, Yokohama and Continental. MRF, however, is the first Indian tyremaker to add its name to the list. All companies or organisations participating in the rubber industry are eligible to join the Panel of Associates, and the IRSG believes members benefit from the interaction between industry and the Group’s Secretariat.
