Rayong, Thailand – China’s Zhongce Rubber Co. Ltd has announced that its factory in Thailand will add new production line for industrial tires, including skid steer tires and pneumatic bias industrial forklift tires.
The company launched its first overseas factory in Thailand in 2015 and has so far produced passenger car, light truck and truck tires at the plant.
In 2017, ZC Rubber Thailand will produce industrial tires for skid steers, telehandlers and backhoes, the Chinese tire-maker announced 10 April.
The new production line will begin to operate in May.
“Demand for industrial tires is increased in southeast Asia based on the market research. And we will produce [tires] targeting industrial products to meet customers’ demands,” said Richard Li said, marketing director of ZC Rubber.
The company also intends to produce radial “OTR and port tires” in Thailand in the future.
