Vianor expands – 900th outlet opened in Bucharest, Romania

Nokian Tyres -owned tyre and car service chain Vianor continues rapid expansion and has opened its 900th tyre outlet in Bucharest, Romania. In short time, Vianor has strengthened its position in the Balkans by increasing its partner network in Bulgaria and by expanding to Romania last autumn. In the beginning of 2012, Vianor also starts to operate in Serbia. Vianor aims to further strengthen the distribution network of Nokian Tyres in the Balkans, where growth is supported by the new winter tyre regulations in the area.
