Following the launch of its comprehensive passenger vehicle range in the US and Canada, as part of the ambitious North American expansion, Apollo Tyres has now entered the truck-bus tyre segment in US and Canada.
While the PV range was launched under the premium European brand, Vredestein, the commercial vehicle range has been introduced under the Apollo brand.
Apollo’s North American range of truck-bus tyres will be produced in its manufacturing units in Hungary and Chennai, which boast the capacity and technical expertise needed to ensure a steady supply of tyres to this market. “Apollo may be a new name in the US and Canada, but we are not a new company. Our market entry in North America is preceded by decades of global commercial vehicle tyre manufacturing and distribution expertise”, said Mr Abhishek Bisht, Assistant Vice-President, Americas, Apollo Tyres.
