Stefan Fischer, managing director – Europe for product technology, said: “The teams at Hannover and Mira are truly exceptional, the quality of work that is being produced, and the resulting tyres such as the GT Radial FE1, Savero SUV and SportActive, highlight exactly what is possible in the mid-market segment.

“Working in conjunction with our global R&D platforms in China, Indonesia and the USA, really has given us a worldwide perspective and allows us to draw on over 600 experts. The new appointments will fit seamlessly into this structure and bring even greater knowledge and experience.”
