Brityrex 2010 attracts Chinese tire manufacturers
Brityrex 2010 show organizers report Chinese tire companies are heading for the show in force "as manufacturers and distributors seek added penetration in the UK following import protection moves in the U.S. and other markets."
ECI Managing Director Paul Farrant says, “There’s no doubt that events in America and elsewhere have had a knock-on affect in terms of Chinese distributors looking at the UK and European market. We already have a very strong group of exhibitors from China, but I think there will be more to come over the next few months, which will offer a huge choice for tire buyers at the show.”
Among those confirmed for Manchester 2010 are Wanda Boto (OTR), Long March (truck and OTR), Sonny Tyre, Zhaoqing Junhong, Ningbo Junda (valves), Zhejiang Dawning (wheels), Koryo Tyres (OTR and agricultural), Star Tyre (representing 23 individual brands) and Techking Tires (OTR).
Other diverse businesses assigned booths include DC Power Systems, which specializes in mobile workshop conversions for trucks and vans, Air-Seal Products, Puncture Safe UK and IT specialist Team Systems.
In other show news, the National Tyre Distributors Association (NTDA) has confirmed that it will hold its annual dinner and awards presentation on Oct. 6 at the Hilton Hotel, Deansgate, Manchester.
