MONROVIA, Calif. — Double Coin and CMA, a leading tire manufacturer and marketer, announced that their Thailand manufacturing facility is now working at full capacity to produce OTR and TBR products.
“Our new Thailand manufacturing facility has full OTR and TBR availability and the production capacity to fulfill container-level orders,” said Tim Phillips, VP of marketing and operations for Double Coin/CMA. “Not only does this production facility have the capacity to meet the demand for commercial tire products, we are offering them at competitive prices, since they are not subject to AD/CVD or tariffs penalties associated with products produced in China.”
Phillips explained that, “With many of our competitors having to rely on China alone, Double Coin customers will be in an excellent purchasing position in the face of product shortages and higher prices from China. Some US suppliers claim they have production availability in Vietnam or Thailand, but it remains to be seen if older plants in these areas that are already running at full capacity can offer any additional TBR and OTR products. The combination of our new state-of-art manufacturing facility and warehousing in Thailand where we can offer very competitive pricing, Double Coin is emerging as the clear choice for TBR and OTR tire products.”
Built on a 3.6 million-square-foot site, the Thailand facility has the capacity to manufacture over 1.8 million TBR tires, as well as over 50,000 OTR tires. The entire plant is controlled by the MES software (manufacturing execution system) and is integrated with the SAP management system. Plans for expansion at the Thailand facility are currently underway.
“In addition to our production capacity at our Thailand facility, we currently have full capacity of Double Coin tires at our five warehouses in Memphis, Tenn., Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., Vancouver, Canada, San Jose, Costa Rica and Queretaro, Mexico,” added Phillips. www.doublecointires.com
