SHANGHAI (Dec. 1, 2014) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) singled out South Korea's Nexen Tire Corp. as an “excellent supplier” at its recent 2014 APAC Supplier Town Hall and Awards Ceremony held in Shanghai.
Nexen Tire was the only tire company to have won the award in the Chemical APAC Export sector, Nexen said. The annual FCA event is held to recognize outstanding global suppliers by evaluating the quality, brand value and technical skills, Nexen said.
In North America, Nexen supplies FCA with OE tires for the Chrysler 200 mid-sized sedan and the Ram 3500 pick-up truck. The tire maker recently was named to supply its Roadian CT8 HL tires for the 2015 “Ram ProMaster” commercial van, which will be assembled at FCA's Saltillo, Mexico, plant for sale throughout North America.
Nexen Tire also has ongoing supply agreements for other FCA models and is expanding its OE ties with Mitsubishi Motors Co. Ltd. and Volkswagen A.G. and VW's Skoda and Seat brands.
