Magna Tyres Group is expanding its worldwide network of offices and distribution outlets, beginning with the opening of a new office in Canada.
The tire maker’s rapid growth in recent years has made expansion necessary to provide support locally on a 24/7 basis. Customers in the area will benefit from more personal service and greater product availability.
Michael de Ruijter, CEO of Magna Tyres Group, commented, “We took a great deal of care in choosing this location for our new office. It strengthens our commitment to our customers in the region and is an opportunity for close cooperation on a daily basis.”
Alex Vitale will head up operations at the facility and has been named as general manager of Magna Tyres USA and Canada. With 20 years of experience as a manager and a broad knowledge of the tire industry, Magna Tyres says he is “the perfect” candidate to lead the company’s expansion into the North American tire market.
