Iran’s Yazd supplying OE tyres to Renault
Groupe Renault has reportedly approved the supply of 50,000 tyres from Iranian tyre maker Yazd Rubber Industries Complex to its subsidiary Renault Algérie. IFP News writes that in addition to supplying Renault, Yazd is now also in negotiations with Volkswagen following the car maker’s entry into Iran.
IFP News notes that Yazd has benefitted from technological input from Vredestein, and this factor influenced Renault’s decision to procure tyres from the Iranian manufacturer. A technical agreement with Vredestein Consulting B.V led to Yazd starting production of radial steel belted passenger car tyres in 2006. Today the company manufactures tyres under the Vredestein and Yazd Tire brand names.
