Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. and Sailun Vietnam Co. Ltd. recently celebrated production of the first tire at ACTR, their new joint venture facility located near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
For the second time, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) is admitting to significant ministerial errors in calculating the tariffs on imports of certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China. The error is resulting in a lower anti-dumping tariff for nearly every tire manufacturer.
Sailun is not yet a high-profile tire brand. It is currently distributed exclusively by TBC Corp. in the United States and Mexico and Dynamic Tire Corp. in Canada, and has only been around for the last 11 years.
Sailun Tire Corp. showcased two tires from its Atrezzo and Terramax lines at a ride-and-drive event for dealers last week. The latest Sailun Tire Challenge was held at the Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, Calif.
With the help of TBC Corp., Sailun Tire Corp. is positioning itself as a premier Tier Three tire company in the United States.
TBC Corp. announced that the company is increasing its commitment to Sailun Tire Corp. with a new Atrezzo passenger tire and more sizes in the Terramax light truck tire line.
