Nexen Tire Europe joins ETRMA

Nexen Tire Europe has joined the European Tyre and Rubber Manufactures’ Association (ETRMA), effective 2022. The tyre maker will join the 15 global tyre manufacturers represented by ETRMA.

During a recent Board of Directors meeting, ETRMA also agreed to welcome the Czech Republic and Slovakia Tyre Producers’ Associations as new members, as of 2022. This brings to 11 the total of national sector associations represented by ETRMA.

Fazilet Cinaralp, ETRMA secretary general said: “This year our association will welcome new members: Nexen Tire Europe, as well as the Czech Republic and Slovakia Tyre Producers’ Associations. Our critical mass is growing and together we can create strong synergies to work even more efficiently towards a safer and greener Europe.”

The Board also discussed and reaffirmed its strong commitment to the EU policy objective of a European economic recovery geared to meeting the Green deal ambitions, a digital Europe, and safer roads.

“ETRMA is fully committed to continue collaborating with the European Commission on the policy priorities to deliver on the green and digital transitions,” the association said in a statement.

“The European tyre industry has been a global leader in tyre performance, innovation and research, sustained by a unique regulatory framework (minimum thresholds, labelling…)” said Mr Annunziato, ETRMA’s president.

He added: “As we recently shared during our meeting with Commissioner Thierry Breton, we have the ambition to contribute even further to increased climate change mitigation targets, tackling tyre abrasion and continuing to improve road safety, whilst contributing to an increasingly circular economy.”
