Apollo Tyres growing in European OE market

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Gurgaon, India – From being a replacement market focused company in Europe, Apollo Tyres is now expanding supplies to the European original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the passenger car tire segment. The companys premier brand, Vredestein, has been selected as a fitment on the Volkswagen Polo, SEAT Ibiza and Ford EcoSport, and the supplies have already begun to these auto makers. I would like to congratulate my team, which has been working relentlessly towards gaining OE approvals in Europe, commented Neeraj Kanwar, vice chairman and MD, Apollo Tyres Ltd. By entering the supply chains of world-leading car makers such as Volkswagen, Ford and SEAT, Apollo Tyres has embarked on a very important journey with European OEMs. While these are the first few, there are several other OE approvals in the pipeline for our passenger car tires. Such OE approvals are a testimony of our high-quality products and our focus on superior design. Volkswagen Polo owners will enjoy the dynamic and comfortable driving performance of the Vredestein Snowtrac 5 (winter tire), Sportrac 5 (summer tire) or Quatrac 5 (all-season tire). The range for the SEAT Ibiza will consist of the Vredestein Sportrac 5 and the Quatrac 5, while the Ford Ecosport will be fitted with the Vredestein Sportrac5 tires. As Apollo Tyres has started the supplies of OE tires for top-quality cars, the companys new manufacturing facility in Hungary, one of the most advanced in the world, will contribute to the acceleration of Apollo Tyres OE journey in Europe. In India, Apollo Tyres has relationships with several leading auto manufacturers and comes as an OE fitment on almost all the top selling passenger cars in the country. – * EmailTweet
