With regards to the company’s current TBR business and the Chinese Tariff situation Andy Baron, SDI’s Sales Manager for the UK said; “We are currently working to resolve the present problem and are actively looking at other tyre producing countries outside of China with a view to forming new manufacturing partnerships, and it is anticipated that by this coming September we will have an alternative tyre production option in place to resume full production of our TBR range.”
