ITMA welcomes first Eastern European member, Acces Auto-Trading
Acces Auto-Trading has become the latest company to join the International Tyre Manufacturers’ Association (ITMA) and the first from Eastern Europe.
The Romanian company supplies car, SUV, 4×4, light and heavy commercial and agricultural tyres, and currently commands approximately 10 per cent of the domestic truck tyre radial replacement market. It is also continuing to expand its offering with the opening of a tyre recycling plant in August 2019.
ITMA now has 24 members, nine of which appear in Tyrepress’ top 20 largest tyre manufacturers.
Alfred Graham, president, ITMA, said: “The intelligence and data available to ITMA members is not only of value to manufacturers but also those wholesalers who are sole national distributors of tyres originating from outside the European Union. For a domestic market leader such as Acces Auto-Trading ITMA membership offers a competitive advantage. We look forward to working with our first Eastern European member.”
Ciprian Gavrilescu, managing director, Acces Auto-Trading, said: “Aces Auto-Trading has rapidly expanded to a commanding market position in Romania through innovation and commercial expertise. That expertise will be further enhanced by the data we, as ITMA members, will now enjoy.”
