Mitas has formally inaugurated a new two-wheeler tire production facility in India to serve the international motorcycle market.
The advanced facility is the result of a joint venture with the Mahansaria Group, with the two companies combining their expertise to bring Mitas tire engineering into the two-wheeler tire market.
“On behalf of everyone at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, I am honored to have seen the first of many Mitas two-wheeler tires come off the production line at this state-of-the-art facility,” said Paolo Pompei, president of Trelleborg Wheel Systems, during the opening event. “Developed alongside our strategic joint-venture partner, Mahansaria Group, who bring over 30 years of experience in leading successful businesses for off-highway tires, this facility will further reinforce the Mitas brand in the high-performance market and expand our global presence. It is a great achievement by all involved, and we are happy to write a new chapter in the history of our Mitas brand as we look forward to continued joint success.”
“At Mahansaria Group, it is our pleasure to embark on a long and exciting journey with Trelleborg Wheel Systems and support them in building and bolstering Mitas’s position as a formidable global brand,” added managing director Yogesh Mahansaria. “This state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is a convergence of our ‘tough and rugged’ DNA, having built leading global brands in the off-highway tire industry over three decades, and Mitas’s technological expertise in the world of two wheels. It also marks our group’s foray into the ever-evolving Indian performance two-wheeler tire market. We are very excited about this partnership with Trelleborg Wheel Systems and look forward to an exciting journey ahead.”
