Findlay, Ohio -- Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has named Glenn Arbaugh director, tyre applications development, for its Asia Technical Centre temporarily located in Rongchen, China.
Arbaugh will oversee development of new tyre products for Asian markets. He has worked at Cooper since 1990, most recently serving as manager of product design.
In addition to a manufacturing presence in China, Findlay-based Cooper is building a retailing network through independent dealers there for the Cooper brand, leveraging in some cases distribution already established and in other cases establishing its own, CEO and President Roy Armes recently told Tire Business.
