Agricultural and Industrial Tyres

It seems a bit offbeat to describe Bridgestone as a relative newcomer to a sector, considering the manufacturer’s vast and illustrious history in the tyre sector, but that is the truth of the matter when it comes to agriculture.

Nokian Heavy Tyres are the top of the bill in Part 9 of the Commercial Tyre Business Agriculture Feature as we had the opportunity to interview three key members of their team in the form of Jarkko Heinamaki (Sales Director), Tero Saari (Agricultural Tyres Product Manager) and Pierre Choubert (Business Manager).

Part 8 in the Agricultural Tyre Feature features an interview with the Head of Sales for Northern Europe for Galaxy and Alliance, Ole Bæk. During the interview Bæk comprehensively outlined the company’s strategy during the COVID crisis, but also detailed how product development has driven Yokohama Off-Highway Tires’s growth recently.

This design offers new pattern for pivot irrigation systems, and has been developed for hot regions, wet crops and muddy soils.
