Zhongce Europe GmbH (ZC Europe) is the company’s fourth office outside of China. The others are in Thailand, Brazil and America.

The company says the establishment of an office in “one of its most important markets” is another significant milestone on its path to global expansion.

Westlake tire and Goodride tire are the main brands in Europe for ZC Rubber. Westlake is now popular in Europe, cooperating with many well-known companies including DSV and Schmitz Cargobull, according to ZC Rubber.
