"It is always interesting to get feedback every two years here in Essen from our partners and customers of many years, as well as from many new guests from around the world. It reflects the successful development of the Hankook brand in Europe, which we are of course very happy about", explained Dietmar Olbrich, Hankook's Marketing and Sales director for German-speaking markets.

"A lot has happened since our first appearance. Our tires have consistently established themselves among leading automobile manufacturers and alike, demonstrating the brands premium positioning. This is evident, among other things, in the announcement of numerous original equipping successes, which our performance and premium tires have recently achieved, with the BMW Group and Daimler AG for example. They are of course prominently represented at our trade stand."
