Ukraine war continues putting tyre production under pressure
At the start of the year this column predicted a positive 2022 for the tyre business on the basis that we are better prepared for the unknown because of the adaptions made during the last few pandemic years.

For example, never before have I received an email which switches from normal editorial matters to “our country has been invaded” from one line to the next.
