Cooper Tire will be the official tyre sponsor of this year’s Dubai International Motor Show. The official announcement was made during a visit by the Vice President and Managing Director of Cooper Tire, Europe and the Middle East, Jeff Schumaker, to the region this week.
The sponsorship will mark the tyre brand’s first move to increase its presence across the Middle East ahead of a series of new product arrivals over the coming months.
Originating in the United States, Cooper Tire, has been supplying the automotive industry with world class tyres since 1914, and currently markets its range of products via eight regional dealers across five Middle East countries. Working with its regional partners, Cooper Tire is planning to expand its reach over the coming months and years as a demonstration of its reinforced commitment to the region.
Cooper Tire produces a full range of car and 4×4 tyres, which have been designed and developed to match the demands of today’s vehicles. The brand’s relevance in the Middle East continues to grow as it leads the industry with the production of one the strongest 4×4 tyre ranges in the world. Cooper tyres are selected for countless applications, including the Dakar Rally, showcasing the brand’s ability to provide products that perform to the highest standards across some of the world’s most diverse terrain and climatic conditions.
Speaking at the regional meet and greet this week, Jeff Schumaker, said “The coming 12 months is set to be hugely important for Cooper Tire in the Middle East and partnering with the region’s leading automotive event is the perfect platform for us. We are looking forward to making our mark on the Middle East and bringing our customers some of the most cutting edge products that are designed for thousands of miles of excellent service.”
