Congratulations to Hankook tyres for picking up the Tyre Manufacturer of the Year award at the annual Tyre Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence 2011.
The South Korean tyres company impressed the award judges with its “advances over the past 12 months,” and growth that may see the company become the world’s fifth largest tyre maker over the coming years.
Jin Wook Choi, executive vice-president and European head of Hankook Tire, commented “2010 has been a very successful year for us and I accept this award with great joy.
“We consider this award as recognition towards our philosophy of sustainable global growth and of our commitment for our production sites.
My gratitude goes to all our staff, without whose exemplary commitment, such progress would not have been possible.”
The award was presented at a ceremony in Cologne, Germany, earlier this month and the runners up were Apollo Tyres and Bridgestone.
