Nokian Tyres is a strong brand especially in the Nordic countries and Russia, while Central Europe and North America are growth markets for us. Our innovative and pioneering products, high-quality services and strong distribution network help us increase our market share in growth regions. In the long term, we want to operate on all significant winter tyre markets.
Key products are produced in our factories in Nokia, Finland and in Vsevolozhsk, Russia. Certain products are produced by off-take contract manufacturers in factories where the quality level corresponds to Nokian Tyres’ high standards.
