Tyre Manufacturers - Hankook Tyres

Hankook tyres conquer the world 

Hankook was founded in 1941 and is thus a youngster, compared to the other major tyre brands. Like all technology brands in South Korea, this brand has also quickly worked out between all competition. Hankook summer tyres and winter tyres are fierce competitors for brands of larger tyre manufacturers, partly because of their excellent price-quality ratio. 

Competition from South Korea 

The South Korean Hankook Tyre is the sixth largest tyre manufacturer in the world. The company was founded in 1941 as the Chosun Tyre Company. In the sixties, it was renamed to simply Hankook. The word 'Hankook' - written in Korean characters - means Korea. Hankook Tyre supplies ex-factory tyres to the Korean brands Kia and Hyundai, but also to Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes and Toyota. 

Hankook Tyre uses the so-called Control technology in the production of its tires. The letter K represents kinetic energy. The tyre in motion depends on control and performance. The technology has as its starting point safety, comfort, environment and performance. Hankook Tyre has successfully enrolled this technology, and it is now the case with summer tyres and winter tyres that perform well and have low rolling resistance. 

In a relatively short period, Hankook developed into a multinational company that supplies tires for passenger cars, light trucks, heavy trucks and buses worldwide in 185 countries worldwide. In 2001, the European distribution centre was opened in Rotterdam. 

Still, Hankook's tyres are widely heard about by sponsoring events and in TV spots. It is a great opportunity for the company to go even further on the ranking of big tyre companies. For this, the successes of the sports car are also used. 

Hankook is good in this… 

Tyre manufacturer Hankook is still the seventh largest manufacturer of tyres in the world but is well on its way to becoming an understanding worldwide. The basis for this is the balanced performance of the large range of Hankook summer tyres and winter tyres, which receive excellent ratings from independent testers. Features of the Hankook tyres are the good balance in driving behaviour on wet and dry roads and excellent road conditions. Combining permanent technological innovation and competitive prices.
