Sumitomo Rubber Brazil Receives Commendation From Local City Council

Sumitomo Rubber Group announced that its tyre manufacturing and sales company in Brazil, Sumitomo Rubber do Brasil (SRB), has received commendation from the city council of Fazenda Rio Grande.

The company was established in 2011 and started producing tyres by 2013. It has also contributed to the development of the local community by creating jobs and simulating various types of market demands.

Yoshinori Wakitani, President, SRB, said, "The fact that our company has been able to remain in business for as long as we have is not owing solely to our own abilities, but is also thanks to all of the outstanding support and cooperation that we have received from a great many people over the years. It has now been 10 years since we came to Fazenda Rio Grande. Our path to getting our business up and running here was by no means easy. However, looking back over these past 10 years, I find myself filled with gratitude for all of the people who have stuck by us and supported us throughout these turbulent times. In the future, I look forward to continuing to work side by side with the local community as we continue to expand our business here in Brazil."

SRB manufactures and sells tyres for passenger cars, trucks, light trucks and buses. It has a production capacity of 18,000 passenger-car and light-truck tyres per day and a 1,000 truck and bus tyres per day. (TT)
