Conti: Casumina Tyres are for Asian Market
Continental AG has published a clarification of press coverage that suggested it had signed a five-year deal to import 170,000 truck tyres into Europe from the Casumina factory in Vietnam. Company representatives told Tyres & Accessories: “The information [that] Continental AG, will import 170,000 truck tyres for sale in EU countries is definitely wrong and not part of the contract.”
Herbert Mensching, managing director of Continental for Marketing and Sales Commercial Vehicle Tires Europe commented: “These bias truck tyres are typical for the Asian market; they are not being used in Europe. There is no intention to import these tyres into the European market”.
