MANUFACTURING OF THE FIRST TITAN TIRES IN RUSSIA
Tire size 520 / 85R42, model Hi Traction Lug is the first tire made by JSC "Voltyre-Prom" under TITAN brand. In addition, "Voltyre-Prom" is the only manufacturer in Russia, which started production of 42" tires.
On April 24 the first modern tire 710 / 70R42 was produced. The next worldwide tire brand, produced by our company, will be the 600 / 70R30.
These tubeless radial tires are designed for use on the driving wheels of agricultural tractors of manufacturers such as John Deere, AGCO, CNH, and many others.
Modern technologies for agriculture
Reinforced tire construction allows easily bearing a high load and applying high torque. Protected sidewalls are highly resistant to mechanical damage. The tire tread has improved self-cleaning properties. A special rubber compound and carcass of these tires minimize rolling resistance, while increasing their elasticity and flexibility. More durable rubber in the central part of the lug prevents fast wear out both in the field and on the roads.
The applied technology in the production of tires maintains their essential characteristics, even after several years of operation at maximum load.
All together, these characteristics allow farmers to save fuel, increase the efficiency of tillage and provide more comfortable ride. But the most important thing is that these tires are saving the processed soil productivity due to a larger contact area and accordingly smaller and evenly distributed pressure on it.
The production of tire sizes listed above was preceded by a thorough technical training and modernization of equipment. In 2013 JSC "Voltyre-Prom" becomes a member of Titan International, Inc. The consortium, which includes Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Titan International, Inc. and One Equity Partners fund, has signed a deal to raise the equity capital of JSC "Voltyre-Prom" in 2013, according to which Titan International is the controlling investor.
And today the Company is prepared to produce the tires under TITAN brand and with TITAN quality, the company plans to further develop this well-known brand, expanding the product line. During 2015 JSC "Voltyre-Prom" plans to start production of several tire sizes of agricultural and industrial tires of TITAN.
The development strategy of "Voltyre-Prom" is creating a tire that can improve the efficiency of AG and industrial production. This approach gives farmers the opportunity to save money and improve the efficiency of their work by using tires of modern production technology.
