Magna Tyres Doubles Production Capacity at Hardenberg Plant


With an eye to increasing demand for the Magna Tyres brand, an expansion of Magna’s Hardenberg plant in the Netherlands will be finalised in 2018.

Dutch Expansion for Magna

Although it is only two months after the company’s 26.5R25 and 29.5R25 expansion, production will rise to 7.000 tyres in the 17.5R25, 20.5R25 and 23.5R25 tyre ranges in 2019. The growth is in keeping with the 2018 - 2023 business plan to continue the increase of production aimed at improving product availability for the Magna customer base worldwide.
