Marking an important strategic step to expand its global footprint, leading Indian tyre maker JK Tyre & Industries Ltd has opend the first JK Retread Centre in Pokhara, Nepal.
The retread centre adds another feather to the cap of JK Tyre in its bid to consolidate the company’s presence internationally through an exclusive service network of providing quality retreading for bias and radial tyres.
Strategically located in Pokhara, a potential market of TBB, LCV & PCR tyres, the centre is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, machinery and trained manpower. It offers company-recommended repair and retread procedures to bring down the cost-per-kilometre for customers.
The addition of the Pokhara centre is in line with the company’s ambition to increase its network of retreading centres to 100 from 36 by 2020, JK says in a Press release.
JK Tyre entered the retreading business in 2009 by setting up a retread rubber manufacturing facility at Kankroli, Rajasthan, which provides original tread design for retreading of tyres to fleet owners/end users.
