New warehousing facility for Sailun
Recent growth in European market sales across both the passenger car and radial truck tyre sectors has led to an upgrade of the Sailun’s tyre logistics strategy.
According to the company, in order to meet increased demand and to maintain service level agreements and delivery standards, Sailun has opened a new enhanced warehousing facility next to its Qingdao research, development, testing and manufacturing centre.
The new warehouse reportedly has an operating size of 28,000 square metres. At full capacity, this means there is room for 750,000 Sailun passenger car and light truck tyres. In addition, the development of the new manufacturing facility in Vietnam will soon help meet increased demand for Sailun tyres.
Martin West, European managing director for Sailun, commented: “This demonstrates the ongoing commitment and investment in the Sailun brand – we are growing our market share in many European countries and the new manufacturing and warehousing arrangements allow us to match increasing demand with increasing supply. The agenda for Sailun remains focussed on the delivery of growth and quality.”
