ERJ Staff Report (TP)
Cologne, Germany -- Black Donuts President and CEO, Kai Hauvala, told ERJ this morning at the Tire Technology Expo 2014 (TTE) that his company has doubled in size since its inception in 2011 and this year will see even more growth.
The Finnish company offers a variety of services -- such as designing an entire tire plant or just one part of the process.
Hauvala said: "All our potential partners are here as we exist between the tire and manufacturing companies.
"There is no limitation to what we can offer and we are like a high-end solution provider. We're not interested in designing old-fashioned processes."
With regards to the future, Hauvala is clear in his intentions.
"We can all see the trend," he said. "Asia. The number of cars is increasing and over the next 20 years will expand more. Even our customers will also expand production in Asia and developing countries."
