USTMA admits Giti Tire as member; Enki Tan joins Board of Directors
Giti Tire has become a member of the US Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA), and Enki Tan, president and chief executive officer of Giti Tire, has been elected to the organisation’s Board of Directors. The tyre maker’s entry into the association was unanimously approved at the USTMA annual spring meeting earlier this month.
The USTMA is the national trade association for tyre manufacturers that operate production facilities in the USA. Giti Tire is the organisation’s 12th member. It joins some half a year after its manufacturing facility in Chester County, South Carolina, began operating. Giti Tire is now ramping up production at the facility.
“We are pleased to have Giti join our organisation,” said Anne Forristall Luke, USTMA president and chief executive officer. “Giti’s investment in adding operations in the US is a demonstration of the strength and appeal of this market.”
