Fabien Bouquet, CEO of Point S Development says, “We are elated to cross over to Asia in our ambitious drive to be the first global tire retailing chain. We registered our Point S Asia representative office in Singapore just earlier this year, and appointed GIIB to be our partner in Malaysia, and now our first store in Asia. This is really a significant moment for Point S, as well as the tire industry.”

Point S operates in 32 countries with more than 3,500 retail points of sale. In 2016 Point S sold more than 16 million tires and notched more than 3 billion Euro in revenue.
