We first saw the Ceat Torquemax tractor tyre at Agritechnica 2019, and Ceat Specialty has now expanded the range to include very high flexion tyres. The Torquemax VF, aimed at “farmers investing in tyres that offer greater operational efficiencies” for their high-horsepower tractors, is available in sizes VF 520/85R38 170 D TL and VF 710/70R42 185 D TL.
Ever since Indian tyre maker Ceat established its Ceat Specialty Tyres Ltd. off-highway subsidiary in 2015, it has sought to raise its profile and boost business within the agricultural sector. But what products does the Mumbai-headquartered flagship company of RPG Enterprises, a company that produces over 15 million tyres annually, have under development to help farmers boost productivity? Dyutiman Chattopadhyay, vice president of R&D and Technology at Ceat Specialty, outlines the company’s plans.
Ceat Limited reports that the Mumbai Bench of India’s National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) approved the Scheme of Amalgamation for the merger of the wholly-owned subsidiary Ceat Specialty Tyres Limited with Ceat Limited. The NCLT granted approval on 13 March.
Ceat may well be the largest agricultural tyre maker you’ve never heard of, but the company is intent on changing this. After concentrating recent efforts upon developing products suited to European conditions and needs, the company is now dedicating its energies to intensively promoting and establishing its agricultural range within the region.
