Kumho returns to UK CV tyre market . . .


Kumho returns to UK CV tyre market

Cited at:

South Korean tyre manufacturer Kumho is to return to the UK truck market, with a dedicated division headed by former Bridgestone CV specialist Steve Miller and an all-new direct distribution network headquartered at a new facility at Magna Park, Lutterworth.

Mr Miller said: “The relaunch is providing an unrivalled chance for us to re-appraise how we promote both the tyres and the company to the truck market. It is also a golden opportunity for the customers to help create a partnership in which they can dictate how they wish to be supported. We are now effectively at the end of the first of four phases of development, and I’m extremely encouraged by the progress made to date.

“The product is far more competitive than ever before and, I can honestly say, now as good as any I have encountered. We have maximised casing quality, improved tread compounds and introduced some highly-effective new tread patterns. Along with keen pricing, these upgrades will ensure the lowest cost per kilometre.”

The initial offering is a three-tyre range: KMA12 is a block tread pattern tyre with stone ejector bar for construction and forestry, KRS04 is a super-single steer tyre for regional and long-haul, and KRS15 is s standard steer tyre for regional operations.
