Linglong Tire signs cooperation agreement with Geely

Geely’s Guan Yu and Linglong’s Wang Feng shake on the agreement

The relationship between Shandong Linglong Tire and vehicle manufacturer Geely Auto Group has deepened with the signing of a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement. Guan Yu, vice president of Geely Auto, and Wang Feng, chairman of Linglong Tire, signed the agreement on 26 August.

Linglong Tire and Geely Auto have worked together since 2012, and during this time Linglong has provided original equipment tyres to a range of Geely models. Last year the tyre maker was named a Geely ‘Best Partner’ at the latter’s Annual Supplier Conference.

According to the agreement, Linglong and Geely will collaborate in a range of areas, such as product design and development, the application of new technologies, quality assurance, cost optimisation and the globalisation of manufacturing. Manufacturing facilities producing Geely vehicles in China and abroad will also serve as a stable customer base for Linglong original equipment tyres. Geely and Linglong anticipate the collaboration will increase each company’s global market share.
