Free online OTR tyre library launched
On 14 June 102 psi launched The Global OTR Library, a free online resource of OTR tyre information. According to the project’s founder, 102 psi, the library makes “multi-brand technical OTR tyre information available at the touch of a button”.
The Global OTR Library presents more than 30 premium, tier 2, 3 and 4 brands’ recent technical data books on one single web platform. Brands include, amongst others, Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin.
Once users have registered their email address, the site is free of charge and allows for “online consultation, printing and downloading of the documents”.
The ambition is “to develop a worldwide independent information platform accessible to manufacturers, distributors dealers and service providers of OTR tyres.”
Koen Vandermeersch, 102psi’s founder and independent OTR and industrial tyre consultant said: “the need for an independent information source is more vital than ever before. Associated industries like OTR tyre users in mining, construction and quarrying as well as vehicle OEMs and OTR tyre related hard-and software providers will also have the benefit of being able to access one single online reference.”
102psi aim to provide professional guidance in the sustainable creation, development and enhancement of OTR and Industrial Tyres business activity with a focus on safety and efficiency. 102psi is a division of VAMAS 2.0 and was founded in 2016 by Koen Vandermeersch.

He successfully managed a variety of services, innovation, sales, marketing, technical and R&D projects working in the OTR tyre business in Europe, Russia & CIS, Africa, the Middle
