Vredestein has a history of over 100 years and today, it carries the premium brand status in this particular industry. Started as a rubber production unit, it then stepped into the automotive industry and now, produces tyres for all kinds of vehicles and bicycles. The bicycle tyre factory in Doetinchem was set up in 1934 and later in 1946, its plant was built in Enschede. In 1962, it amalgamated with N.V.
