Doublestar Europe is a joint venture with one of the leading tyre distributors in Europe - the Zenises Group.  It is responsible for the sale, marketing and distribution of all Doublestar products in Europe (including Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom).

Doublestar is one of China’s leading tyre manufacturers with a long and prestigious history. Most recently, the establishment of its new ‘Industry 4.0’ leading production plant in Qingdao has made it one of the most technologically advanced manufacturers in China.

A spokesperson for Doublestar Europe commented on the appointment – “We are very fortunate to have Mr Kandhari as a guiding hand on the Doublestar Europe board.  We believe that he is one of the leading thinkers in the European tyre industry and with his experience both in China and in the tyre industry, this will take the joint venture to new heights in building Doublestar into one of the leading brands in Europe.”

Mr Kandhari also commented on the appointment – “Doublestar is one of the leading tyre manufacturers in China. Having seen their new factory and met their new management I can confidently say that they will remain as one of the top five manufacturers in China when the inevitable consolidation comes in the Chinese tyre industry.  I am proud to be associated with a company that shares our values both in terms of the provision of quality products and in the creation of positive social impact.”

Doublestar Europe also announced that Mr Kandhari will be donating all his proceeds from the venture to the Zenises Foundation whose goal is to ensure a better future for all children.
