Magna Tyres Group Ventures into USA and Canada

Alex Vitale

Magna Tyres Group has announced that it is expanding its worldwide network of offices and distribution, starting with a new office in Canada.

Magna Tyres Expansion in North America

According to the company, rapid growth in recent years has made expansion necessary to provide support locally on a 24/7 basis. Clients in the North American region will benefit from closer and even more personalised attention, while product availability increases because stocks can be locally maintained. The objective is to increase market share, focus on improving customer relationships and satisfaction in this high potential region.

Meanwhile, the company has appointed Alex Vitale to the post of General Manager – USA and Canada.

Michael de Ruijter, CEO of Magna Tyres Group, commented: “We took a great deal of care in choosing this location for our new office. It will further strengthen our commitment to all customers in the region and is an opportunity for close daily cooperation”.
