Ceat recently appointed Renji Issac, Senior Vice President R&D and Technology in India. Issac took over from Peter Becker, Senior Vice President R&D and Technology effective 1 May. Becker was globally responsible for quality tyre development and implementation in Europe from July 2017 to 30 April 2023.
Indian tyre maker Ceat Ltd. says it anticipates a greater presence in “Europe’s niche market segments” thanks to the recent addition of low profile 19- and 20-inch UHP tyres to its portfolio. Ceat mentions Germany as a market of particular interest for these products.
Kumho Tire Europe has issued a statement regarding Peter Becker’s intention to leave the company. Becker will reportedly part ways with Kumho at his own request this summer; the tyre maker says specific details regarding his future career plans are “not known at the moment.”
