Magna to ‘expand’ in Germany following Interpneu deal
Dutch OTR tyre manufacturer Magna Tyres Group has announced details of a “strategic relationship” with wholesaler Interpneu. Beginning in April 2013 the agreement is described as “an important step” in introducing and building the Magna brand in Germany. Based in Waalwijk, Netherlands Magna says it is seeking to expand having manufactured compounds for three decades.
Magna says that it has found “the ideal partner” in Interpneu, with both companies contributing experience of international tyre sales and distribution to their cooperation. The partnership will allow the Magna brand to access end users through Interpneu’s Pneuhage Reifendienste network. The deal aims to create a nationwide service network for Magna OTR tyres.
Magna began its move towards complete tyre production through forklift truck tyres, establishing a full range of solid, pneumatic, press-on and skid steer products. Radial OTR production started in 2006, and the company says it can now produce larger radial OTR tyres in sizes up to 63”. Magna is currently represented in more than 80 countries.
