Giti Tire to unveil Giti branded TBR portfolio at CV show in Birmingham.
Giti Tire will unveil the first phase of its Giti branded truck and bus portfolio at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2017 in April at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK. The tyre line includes 20 patterns for the European market.
The company’s display will feature new product lines and conversions of existing patterns from GT Radial, many of which now have an increase load index label or 3PMSF winter accreditation. Featured will be products and information on the company’s combi-road, long haul, regional, mixed service, urban and winter tyres.
Last year the company announced the Giti name would replace GT Radial in the truck and bus segment to create a singular global platform and streamline product development. The tyres are positioned at the top of the mid-tier segment. Tony McHugh, Giti Tire’s TBR sales and marketing director for the UK, said: “Out of the 20 patterns on display, six are new to the European market, 12 have been rebranded from existing GT Radial products, with many of these featuring improved load index, label results or winter accreditation, and we will continue to promote our retread program.” McHugh added that the display at the CV Show is the first step in several major launches throughout 2017.
