The Sailun Group will open the Sailun Tire Americas Technical Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., that will design and develop passenger, light truck, SUV, CUV and medium truck tires, plus tires for electric vehicles.
Passenger and light truck tire production at the Sailun Group's newest factory, in Cambodia, is underway. Tires there are being made to support the North America market, as well as select European regions.
The Premier Hockey Federation (PHF) has named Sailun the "Official Tire of the PHF" for the 2021-22 season. Sailun will be visible at all games in all six PHF markets and on various broadcast and digital properties.
The impact of COVID-19 on trucking fleets’ operating budgets has created an opening for “value tier” commercial truck tire brands to gain additional market share, according to Kevin Lake, vice president of marketing, Sailun Tire Americas.
