Continental Tyres has announced that it plans to expand its truck tyres production capacity at the Modipuram plant in Uttar Pradesh.

The capacity expansion initiative will be completed in the next 18 months, further increasing the product range for 20” and 22.5” along with the existing other range of Truck and Bus Radial (TBR) tyres produced at the plant,  said the tyre maker in a release.

This expansion will enable increased export volumes to the APAC region, favorably impacting Continental’s production cost and profitability.

Claude d’Gama Rose, Head of Tires Business, Continental India, said, “Our tire business in India is expanding, and we are committed to manufacturing world-class products for our consumers. We are moving ahead with “in the market, for the market” approach and our plant is manufacturing products suitable to the Indian road conditions. Our offerings, both in commercial and passenger, has expanded in terms of product, size, and pattern. We have scaled up our production capabilities to serve domestic and export demand, coming from ASEAN, APAC, and select regions in South America.”
