New Rugao Factory Increases Double Coin Production
China’s Double Coin – one of the country’s first manufacturers producing radial tyres – has announced that it is to increase production to six million tyres with the construction of a third factory. In producing the additional product quantity, the company hopes to meet market demand for radials, which it believes is rising.
At Reifen 2008, Double Coin reported a great deal of European interest as well as other international tyre specialists, a fact the company puts down to its greater experience in different markets, which it says has enabled the company to produce a product of increasingly high quality.
In addition, the company is seeking to continue its research and development with a new truck tyre section catalogue planned during 2008.
Company representative Ari Twigt said that, “During the Essen show we had the chance to enlarge our dealer network in several European countries. This will help ensuring the Double Coin and OTR users to find anywhere in Europe a service point.” The new factory is set to increase the Double Coin’s production of OTR tyres and a range of new sizes will be available after testing period.
