Kenda moving US tyre production out of China

June 12, 2019

Taiwan’s Kenda Rubber is in the process of relocating its tyre production from the mainland to other Asian countries amid US-China trade angst. The stiff tariffs affecting Kenda’s US orders would otherwise add to other Chinese exports totaling US$65 million annually.

Despite the move, the company has assured of supply from the most preferred area for quality products and service to customers, “Kenda has many tyre manufacturing facilities in Asia, we can offer productions from different factories to cover demands from customers in different parts of the world,” Chairman Jimmy Yang said.

Kenda’s Chinese production for the States’ passenger and SUV tyres is expected to start from their second Vietnam factory upon completion of its US$48 million expansion.
