September 26, 2018

apolloIndia’s Apollo Tyres has started commercial production of its in-house brand truck tyres from its Hungarian facility. The Hungarian unit in Gyongyoshalasz region, is Apollo Tyres’ second production facility in Europes, and sixth worldwide. The production capacity continues to be ramped up on a daily basis in this facility, and will reach the planned capacity for Phase 1 by 2019.

The first batch Apollo Endurace RT HD 385/65 R 22.5 tyres are now being used by Piessens and Zonen from Londerzeel, Belgium, a company specialising in transportation of construction materials.

“We are pleased with the excellent price/quality ratio of these Apollo tyres,” said Patrick and Danny Piessens, owners of the Belgian company.

“Prior to making the purchase, we carried out very stringent tests, and the results showed all the characteristics of a premium tyre. The majority of our trucks and trailers have now been fitted with Apollo truck tyres.”

Apollo Tyres started supplying their own truck tyres in Europe in 2017, and has since expanded their market into different countries as the quantity of their European clients increase.

Holding over 2% of the brand’s market share and as the initial European country to introduce Apollo truck tyres, Belgium will be the first to receive delivery from the company’s Hungarian plant.

In partnership with European clients, Apollo has tested its truck tyres for over 300 million kilometres. The tyres grade at C-label for fuel consumption and an A-label for wet conditions. Apollo also provides a 5-year warranty on any manufacturing issues, and a buy-back guarantee for the carcass, as they can be retreaded multiple times.
