XINGTAI, China (July 7, 2015) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems S.p.A. is set to start a Phase III expansion project at its agricultural tire plant in Xingtai, starting next year, according to Paolo Pompei, president of agricultural and forestry tires at Trelleborg.
“Most of our top customers operate in the Asian market today,” Mr. Pompei said. “The facility provides proximity to Asian customers, but also support to our global customers in the local market.”
The expansion plan is being made on account of “the growing request for radial tires,” he added, although Trelleborg did not disclose the investment in the plant or its capacity.
