Yanchang Rubber (or Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum Group Rubber Co., Ltd., to give the company its full name) has announced plans to exhibited at the The Tire Cologne in May. The firm, which was born out of one of the leading petrochemical firms in China, is also amongst the largest tyremakers in the People’s Republic. Yanchang Rubber’s current production capacity amounts to 2 million commercial vehicle tyres and 8 million passenger car tyres a year. The firm’s best-known brand is Duraturn.

After a recruitment process that ran through the course of 2016, Duraturn UK has appointed a team of sales, sales support and administration staff dedicated to the development of the tyre brands presence in the UK market.
All-steel truck radial tyre manufacturer Dynacargo began exporting to the United States earlier this year. According to online news reports, Dynacargo (a member company of Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum (Group) Co., Ltd.-Kaidi Xixiang Company) has gained permission from Shaanxi Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau to export to the North American market.
Heard of Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum (Group) Rubber Co., Ltd? We hadn’t either before last year’s Reifen China in Shanghai. However, after our brief introduction at last year’s show this year the company returned to the exhibition with another substantial stand in a similarly prime position. This time round company representatives brought with them news that despite being founded as recently as December 2008, it is already well on the well to producing 1 million truck tyres a year at its Xianyang truck tyre production plant. With the company's passenger car radial line due to break ground in 2013, this could be a production base to watch.
