Last year, ZC Rubber ranked as the 10th largest tire maker in the world, according to Tire Business' Global Tire Report, with 2016 sales of more than $3 billion.
ZC Rubber's portfolio includes passenger, light truck, bus, off-the-road, industrial and ag tires. The tire maker markets Arisun-, Chaoyang-, Goodride- and Westlake-brand tires.
ZC Rubber said it is committed to sustainability and providing "the most suitable products to global consumers." The company said it is pushing to improve its global distribution network and service by launching the Auto Space retailer program in the China and Southeast Asia markets.

Besides its headquarters factory complex in Hangzhou, the company has one overseas plant, in Rayong, Thailand, and sales offices in North America, South America and Europe, including ZC Rubber Americas Inc. in Walnut, Calif.
