Goodyear to supply Volvo with truck tires
Jan 1, 2004 12:00 PM
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co has signed a new agreement to make its commercial truck tires the standard equipment used on all Volvo trucks produced for North America over the next three years.
Truck tires for Volvo vehicles are produced at Goodyear's manufacturing facilities in Danville VA and Topeka KS. The company will supply Volvo with the new-generation G395 LHS, as well as the complete Goodyear commercial portfolio of line-haul, regional, and vocational products.
Goodyear also has renewed its current standard agreement with Mack Trucks Inc, a subsidiary of the Volvo Group. The Mack agreement will run concurrent with the Volvo pact; both agreements extend through October 2006.
