Sneak peek: Hankook's plans for 2014

Posted on January 6, 2014

Hankook Tire America Corp. executives have no doubt finalized their marketing plans for 2014 -- and can't wait to unveil them at this year's Hankook dealer meeting in Jamaica in February.

That's still a month off, however. For those of you shoveling out from the snow who can't wait either for Jamaica's warm weather and hospitality or Modern Tire Dealer's coverage of the event, here's a sneak peek at what they will talk about.

New products. A new plant in Clarksville, Tenn. Sports marketing.
