New Factory For Colway Production
Following the news that Polish retreader Mark Gum had purchased the retreading equipment and the Colway and Greenway brands, all previously owned by C-Tyres, it has been revealed that the company will build a new factory in Poland to produce the tyres.
Mark Gum’s owners, Mariona and George Krzyzagorski, have said that construction of the plant will begin this summer, with some tyres being produced later this year. Full production will come on-stream in the summer of 2009 and the range will include tyres for all sectors; passenger car, 4×4, van, light and heavy truck.
Gary Oliver, managing director of C-Tyres, has been asked by the owners of Mark Gum to “become involved in several capacities to assist with the re-introduction of the brands”, to which he has agreed.
