Apollo Delivers First Truck Tyres from Hungarian Plant


Apollo Vredestein has started production and delivery of Apollo branded truck tyres from its new factory in Hungary.

UK Sales Team Anticipates Continued Growth

The first of these tyres – the Apollo 385/65 R22.5 Endurance RT HD – are already being used by Belgian haulage company Piessens and Zonen from Londerzeel, a company specialised in the transport of construction materials.

Apollo Vredestein started supplying Apollo truck tyres in 2017 and has since developed a growing client base in the UK due to what the manufacturer describes as “an excellent cost-per-kilometre ratio.”

"The UK has become an important market for the brand," says Apollo TBR Sales Manager Steve Miller.

"We are eagerly awaiting the new product from the Hungarian factory; many of our customers have expressed their delight in the performance of the Apollo truck tyres. The opportunity to develop Apollo's latest range only enhances the position of the brand here."

In partnership with European clients, Apollo's truck tyres have been tested on over 300 million kilometres and proven their exceptional durability. With this in mind, Apollo has given its tyres names starting with 'ENDU', for endurance. All the truck tyres have at least a C‑label for fuel consumption and an A‑label for wet conditions – a unique performance for premium truck tyres. Apollo also gives a five‑year warranty on any manufacturing issues and a casing buy‑back guarantee.
