Kumho tyres catching the big boy’s up ?

The latest Kumho Tyres Factory to be opened is in Bibb in the USA and will open up the States to a larger market. Not many years ago Kumho tyres were the new boy’s on the block and along with Hankook tyres were virtually unheard of a few years ago. The

giant tyre company sprang onto the World stage after creating a massive dealer network, through British wholesalers such as Micheldever in the South of England. The sister company of Kumho is a brand known as Marshal tyres, originally sold to the American market, but now sold here in the UK through Bond International Tyres in Pocklington near York in the UK. There are no plans for a Kumho Tyres Factory to be built here in the UK, but you never know. I suspect the cost of labour here in the UK is very high compared to the emerging Eastern economies, where a Kumho Tyres Factory has been recently opened in China.

Kumho tyres have also become one of the top tyre suppliers in the World of motorsport and this is another reason that the company are expanding the Kumho Tyres Factory empire into other countries and markets. The Kumho brand is an excellent product and is selling well against the top tyre companies such as Bridgestone, Continental and Michelin,. The gap is getting narrower between the up and coming Eastern tyre manufacturers and the long standing well known tyre companies.
