Fri February 20 6:02 AM 2009 in category Company news
The decline in machinery manufacture and transportation is also reflected in Nokian Heavy Tyres business. In response to the market demand status, the production focus has been shifted from forestry tyres to harbour and mining tyres, as well as special agricultural and machinery tyres.
R&D efforts remain active even in challenging times. The product range will be expanded to better respond to the special needs of our customers operating in harbours and mines, as well as agricultural contractors.
All-new product families will be introduced this year, and the size offering will expand at accelerated rates. Furthermore, we will be able to enhance our fast, flexible service thanks to the efficient utilisation of distribution networks.
