If You Want Double Coin Tires, Thailand Is Ready

Posted on June 11, 2019

The Double Coin OTR and truck tire plant in Thailand is at full capacity, says China Manufacturers Alliance LLC (CMA).

"Our new Thailand manufacturing facility has full OTR and TBR availability and the production capacity to fulfill container-level orders," says Tim Phillips, CMA's vice president of marketing and operations.

"Not only does this production facility have the capacity to meet the demand for commercial tire products, we are offering them at competitive prices since they are not subject to AD/CVD (anti-dumping and countervailing duties) or tariffs penalties associated with products produced in China.

"With many of our competitors having to rely on China alone, Double Coin customers will be in an excellent purchasing position in the face of product shortages and higher prices from China. Some U.S. suppliers claim they have production availability in Vietnam or Thailand, but it remains to be seen if older plants in these areas that are already running at full capacity can offer any additional TBR and OTR products."

Built on a 3.6 million-square-foot site, the Thailand facility has the capacity to manufacture more than 1.8 million radial truck and bus (TBR) tires, as well as over 50,000 OTR tires. The entire plant is controlled by MES (Manufacturing Execution System) software and is integrated with the SAP management system.

Plans for expansion at the Thailand facility are currently underway.

"In addition to our production capacity at our Thailand facility, we currently have full capacity of Double Coin tires at our five warehouses in Memphis, Tenn.; Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; Vancouver, Canada; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Queretaro, Mexico," says Phillips

CMA is the U.S. subsidiary of Shanghai Huayi Group Corp. Ltd. For more information about Double Coin tires, visit www.doublecointires.com.
