ERJ staff report (DS)
Trelleborg has acquired an operation in Xingtai (Hebei), in eastern China, to facilitate the Group's expansion in the Chinese market for specialty tires, primarily agricultural tires.
The acquired facility was previously owned by a Chinese company, part of the US Group Main Industrial Tire LLC, and includes approximately 180 employees.
Through this establishment, Trelleborg becomes the first manufacturer of agricultural tires from the West to have its own production in China. The establishment provides proximity to Chinese customers, but also support to European and US customers in the local Chinese market.
