Shengtai Group joins ITMA

ITMA has announced that China’s Shengtai Group has become the association’s latest member.

Established in 2002 and located in Xishui, Shandong, the company produces a wide range of tyre products and brands including the ‘Rapid’ brand. As a member of ITMA, Shengtai will receive regular updates on the legislative and technical issues which affect the sale of tyres within Europe.

Shengtai’s membership follows an uptick in the association’s membership driven by Chinese/Taiwanese tyre manufacturers over recent years (namely from Triangle, Hangzhou Zhongce, Aeolus, Kenda, Federal and others). Continuing this trend, following its initial meetings with Chinese tyre manufacturers association CRIA, ITMA reports it has recently held further successful talks on how the two organisations can work together.

Details are scant at the moment, but ITMA representatives report that at a recent meeting in Beijing, positive steady progress was made. As part of the collaboration, CRIA has invited ITMA to submit regular articles for the association’s own member’s newsletter which is distributed fortnightly to its 1200 member companies. News of further developments with CRIA are expected later in the year.
