To cope with its rapid growth in South Africa and neighbouring countries, the Dutch group Magna Tyres has announced the opening of a new regional office in South Africa. “The new Magna Tyres office will play an important role in enhancing the Magna Tyres brand image and strengthen our commitment to all customers in the region,” said Michael de Ruijter, CEO of Magna Tyres.
The manufacturer Magna Tyres doubled the production of its Hardenberg plant based in the Netherlands, which will be finalised by the end of this year. Two months after the 26.5R25 and 29.5R25 expansion, the amount of 7000 tyres in the 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 23.5R25 ranges will be reached in 2019. This consistent output is in keeping with the 2018-2023 business plan of the group.
Congo Retread & Tyre, an exclusive Magna Tyres distributor in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was engaged to supply heavy duty machinery tyres for the construction of one of the largest copper mine sites in the country. Selected for a test period, the 29.5R25 Magna M-Terrain tyres for articulated dump trucks benefit from the suitability of the conditions in which they are used and from the decrease of customer’s cost per hour.
