Taipei, Taiwan – Federal shined at the 2014 Taiwan Excellence Awards, winning prizes for the third year running with its two latest models − FORMOZA AZ01 FRF (Run Flat) passenger car tire and FEDERALLY G-10 ‘gravel rally’ tire.
The 22nd Taiwan Excellence Awards, which is delivered by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, selected the two models out of 1,281 other products. The judges based their decisions on R&D, design, quality and marketing. In addition, Federal was the only passenger car tire and motorsports tire winner this year.
The AZ01 FRF enables drivers to “carry on driving at a certain speed if a blowout occurs”, and was recognised for the “best combination of performance, comfort, security and efficiency”.
The FEDERALLY G-10 is designed for dry or humid course conditions, and has been used in many racing competitions − such as the QRC in Queensland, Australia; TARGA Rally in New Zealand; CUR Rally in Uruguay; and the APRC in Asia Pacific Zone and Rally of Russia.
The firm employs a variety of spellings for its official company name – Federal Tires, Federal Tire and Federal Tyres; but is part of Federal Group, which includes marketing, real estate divisions, and two tire manufacturing plants. It is headquartered in Taoyuan, Jhongli City, Taiwan, and was founded in 1954.
