June 3, 2021

Amit Tolani is the new chief executive of CEAT Specialty. A 17-year CEAT veteran, he most recently served as the company's chief marketing officer.

“This is an exciting time for CEAT Specialty as we increase our distribution footprint across North America and provide products that meet the needs of farming operations of all sizes,” says Tolani, who notes that CEAT has expanded its range of very high-flexion (VF) ag tires.

 “CEAT is delivering VF technology at an affordable price to all our North American customers,” he says.

Tolani adds that CEAT is on track to complete "the first phase of capacity expansion of (its) ag radial plant" in Ambernath, India.

"Further, we have committed capital expenditure to increase the capacity to three times of current in the next 18 months. This will further reduce our lead times.

"We have a great team in place headed by CEAT Specialty Tires Inc. President Ryan Loethen and I look forward to visiting our North American dealers and customers.”
