Nordman now also available for container handling machines

The Nokian Nordman tyre range was expanded for this summer with the launch of new models designed for container handling machines. In addition, Nordman tyres suitable for underground mine loaders will be available shortly.

The sturdy Nokian Nordman Harbour is a bias tyre designed for reach stackers, forklifts and RTGs. The new Nordman RTG product features a tread design optimised for RTG cranes.
The development of the Nordman product family was initiated a few years ago. Nokian Heavy Tyres wanted to offer an alternative that has an excellent price-quality ratio but not the full range of premium tyres’ special properties.
“We responded to our customers’ wishes by first developing the Nordman forestry tyre that was launched last year. It is a good, wellfunctioning special product,” describes Vesa Sampakoski, Sales and Marketing Manager, Nokian Heavy Tyres.
“The Nokian Nordman product family is particularly suitable for replacement markets, for example, on overhauled machines, but the products are also bought as original equipment tyres. Of course, reliability is the top priority. The customer’s expectations are met.”
Most of the Nordman products are intended for similar machines as premium products. In addition, new Nordman tyres are currently under development that will expand the existing product family to all-new applications.
