Schenck is expanding its portfolio for the tire industry
Schenck is going one step further in the industry of measuring and balancing technology for tire production. The Japanese joint venture Nagahama Seisakusho is now pooling the technologies for the final quality process step. The joint venture acquired the technology for tire uniformity testing from Kobe Steel Ltd. The two companies have been working together in this segment for 20 years. Nagahama supplied the balancing technology and Kobe Steel the tire uniformity systems and mechanical engineering. They are now combining their expertise in Nagahama Seisakusho.
Jörg Brunke, the CEO of Carl Schenck AG, sees major prospects in this step:
“In acquiring the technology of Kobe Steel Ltd., we are emphasising our technological leadership and thus opening up further market segments in the tire industry. Kobe Steel measurement and testing technology has an excellent reputation, particularly on the Asian market. We will replicate this success by exploiting our global sales and service organisation. This profitable growth is also supported by our global production and engineering locations”.
