“We appreciate the help from all the people who support us to build the factory in short months," says Jinrong. "It is a milestone to take the first step of globalization for ZC Rubber on the production.

The annual capacity of ZC Rubber Thailand is 4.2 million passenger and light truck radial tires, and 0.7 million TBR. The company says the second phase of the factory "will be built into a modern tire factory according to the standards for the first one with advanced equipment and large scale."
