Reifen 2008: Interstate Tire & Rubber Co.
Participating for the seventh consecutive time at Reifen Essen, Dutch manufacturer Interstate Tire & Rubber Co. used the exhibition to introduce a new line of tyres; the Interstate SUV Sport GT, a full line of modern SUV tyres with unique tread pattern. The range boasts SUV tyres sized between 16-inch and 18-inch, including ISST noise technology for low noise and low rolling resistance. Also displayed was the new range of UHP tyres, the Interstate Sport IXT-1 in 19 and 20 inch and also the new sizes in the Interstate Winter IWT-2 line.
In addition to the new tyres, the Interstate factory has been significantly expanded, increasing the capacity by 20%. The company, represented by Commercial Director Theo de Vries, was also eager to state that the company’s tyres were now being produced “with clean oil” and that “there have been many environmental updates for cleaner production” within its production units.
Interstate Tires has a sales and distribution network in more than 45 countries worldwide. Many distributors have been doing business with Interstate Tires for more than 10 years.
