Prinx Chengshan presents truck tyres in Europe for first time

Prinx Chengshan, manufacturers of the Austone range of tyres, which are distributed in Ireland by Euro Tyre Sales, is launching its commercial vehicle tyre programme throughout Europe at this year’s NUFAM 2021.

Taking place from today, September 29, to October 3 in Karlsruhe, Germany, the company will be presenting its diverse range of tyres for trucks, buses and trailers for use in regional transport, long-haul transport and on construction sites.

The range of truck, bus and trailer tyres has been specially developed for the high demands of the European market in terms of product quality as well as range diversity and, according to Peter Kraus, senior product manager at Prinx Chengshan Tire Europe GmbH, has excellent segment-specific product characteristics.

For regional and long haul transport, this is reflected in high mileage, outstanding wet grip and thus in safety and reliability, Kraus said.

For the products used on construction sites the company has paid special attention to robustness and traction, in addition to the self-cleaning tread design, to provide users with the highest possible safety and mobility, even under the most difficult conditions of use.

Kraus said: “High-performance tyres designed for durability, safety and mobility lead to high mileage and better fuel economy. We help hauliers reduce their CO2 emissions and fuel consumption with tyres optimised for rolling resistance.

“We develop tyres that perform over the long term, so that they can be used until they reach the legal wear limit and then be retreaded: one of the main ways Prinx Chengshan ensures that fewer resources are used. A good decision to achieve sustainable mobility.

“From regional and long-haul transport to construction sites, we thus offer sustainable and high- performance tyres.”

Prinx Chengshan has more than 46 years of experience and expertise in developing and manufacturing quality tyres for the entire global market.

The products of the commercial vehicle segment are manufactured in the company’s own plant in Thailand, which dispose of state-of-the-art ISO-certified production facilities equipped with innovative 4.0 technologies. The production capacity of up to seven million truck, bus and trailer tyres per year ensures high product availability.

Prinx Chengshan Tire Europe expects the launch of its commercial vehicle tyres to be another milestone for Prinx Chengshan in Europe. A first step towards this will now be the participation at NUFAM with the presentation of Austone Tires truck, bus and trailer tyres and Fortune Tires van tyres.

Thomas Wohlgemuth, managing director of Prinx Chengshan Tire Europe GmbH added: “As an established and renowned trade fair in the German-speaking region, NUFAM 2021 offers an optimal event and ideal platform for the market launch of our truck, bus and trailer tyres.

“Here you can see, inspect and touch our tyres. Our customers, partners and interested parties can get individual advice and convince themselves about their requirements and expectations of our products. We are looking forward to a promising trade fair and direct feedback from the market.”
