Cooper Will Build TBR Tires at Sailun Factory In Vietnam

Posted on February 8, 2018

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has entered into a multi-year manufacturing agreement with Sailun Vietnam Co. Ltd. to produce truck and bus radial (TBR) tires.

The offtake agreement gives Cooper a third source of TBR tire production to meet growing customer needs across the globe. In Vietnam the plant will produce Roadmaster, Dean and Starfire brand tires.

“Cooper has been expanding our TBR business in both the replacement and original equipment segments,” says Brad Hughes, CEO and president of Cooper. “The Sailun facility in Tay Ninh, Vietnam, where our TBR tires will be produced is a state-of-the-art plant with an experienced team that is committed to outstanding product quality. We look forward to working with them as we continue to grow our TBR business and meet customer demand for our products.”

In addition to the manufacturing offtake agreement, Cooper says it will open a new North American distribution center dedicated to its TBR business. The 400,000-square-foot facility, to be leased by Cooper, will open in San Bernardino, Calif. in spring of 2018. Cooper says the facility “will enhance the speed and efficiency” of its service to North America TBR customers.
