Hankook and Schmitz Cargobull extend cooperation

Tyre manufacturer Hankook and Schmitz Cargobull have agreed on extending their cooperation in Europe.

Schmitz Cargobull confirmed today that it will continue to specify tyres of the Hankook TBR range as standard across all models and keep supporting the Korean tyre brand in the development of application-specific tread patterns.

According to Hankook, the TBS series has been adapted to European conditions, so the original fitment business will initially concentrate on the European market, covering nine sizes in the 19.5 and 22.5-inch range.

“In addition to the use of our modern truck tyres by globally leading truck manufacturers as original equipment, the expansion of our cooperation with Schmitz Cargobull … will give us a further boost for the expansion of our pan-European activities in this segment,” commented Ho-Youl Pae, Hankook COO for Europe.
