Algeria’s first tyre plant completes first test phase
On 26 March 2019 the Iris Group announced “the success of the first test phase” of its “100 per cent made in Algeria” tyre factory. Celebrating the news, the company thanks its partnership and stakeholders for their efforts up to this point: “All this could not have been done without the perfect involvement of our collaborators, a big thank you to all!”
Tyres & Accessories understands that the Iris Group tyre factory is being constructed in conjunction with tyre industry automation specialists Cimcorp.
