Tire Group International (TGI) recently opened a new office in Qingdao, China.

Jing Dong Ling, formerly a quality and mixing engineer with Yellow Sea Tire Co., is overseeing all of TGI's private label production coming out of China. Ling brings more than 10 years of experience and knowledge from the quality control side of the tire building process to TGI.

"We are now building three private labels (Cosmo, Luna and Industar) in China," says CEO Tony Gonzalez. "The addition of Mr. Ling will ensure that TGI's quality standards are being met and that our supply chain is being supervised directly at the source."

Tire Group International, based in Miami, distributes more than 40 tire brands "covering the entire spectrum of the tire industry," according to the company. TGI also distributes its own private labels, which include Astro and Orion in addition to the private brands made in China.
