Kumho Tire Co. Inc. will supply original equipment tires to Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz Viano multi-purpose vehicle. Kumho will provide approximately 10,000 tires for the Viano X-Clusive, which will be sold in Europe.
Kumho will supply the Mercedes-Benz division with its KU19 ultra-high performance tire. The company has supplied tires for the Mercedes-Benz A Class in Europe since 2007.
Kumho is working at strengthening its OE business operations in the U.S. and Europe, according to a company spokesman. The new fitment with Mercedes-Benz "will have a ripple effect on sales in the replacement equipment market and will help the company achieve its goal to become the number five tire company in the world by 2015."
