Cooper-Sailun JV plant rolls out first tyre

The joint venture between Cooper Tire and Sailun Vietnam Co, ACTR, rolled out the first tyre from its plant, located near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Cooper owns 35 per cent of ACTR, which will produce truck and bus radial (TBR) tyres for global markets.
The plant is expected to be operational and producing tyres on a commercial level by early 2020. At full capacity, production is expected to be around two million tyres annually.
“Cooperation between Cooper and Sailun has been outstanding, and we thank our partner Sailun for working so closely with us over the past several months to construct this facility,” said Brad Hughes, Cooper President & Chief Executive Officer. “This is another important step in Cooper’s strategy to expand and diversify our TBR production globally, giving us additional capacity to supply quality Roadmaster TBR tyres to customers worldwide.”
Zhongxue Yuan, Chairman & President of Sailun Group Co., said, “ACTR is a highly modern tyre production facility with the latest technologies to drive quality and efficiency. ”
