Following the certification of Goodyear’s locally-produced consumer and Off-The-Road (OTR) Bias tyres as Proudly South African by the country’s official buy local advocacy campaign, Goodyear is excited to showcase its locally-produced tyres at the 11th edition of the Proudly South African Buy Local Summit and Expo taking place in Johannesburg, Sandton Convention Centre from the 27th-28th March 2023.
The Summit and Expo will provide Proudly South African members with the opportunity to showcase the diversity of locally produced products and services. Goodyear, which has been a key contributor to the local tyre manufacturing industry for 75 years, will be showcasing a range of its OTR Bias and consumer tyres produced from its manufacturing plant in Kariega. Goodyear is proud to be the only tyre manufacturer that produces OTR Bias tyres in South Africa.
OTR tyres are fitted on heavy duty vehicles, such as mining vehicles which are vital to the daily operations in the mines in South Africa and across the continent. Our product portfolio also includes a range of high-quality consumer tyres which cater for the passenger and SUV/4X4 market. Goodyear OTR Product Business Unit (PBU) Head, Sello Tlhotlhalemajoe will join the Summit and Expo.
We invite all media and delegates that will be in attendance to visit the Goodyear stand no i15 at the exhibition area where they will have an opportunity to interact with the Goodyear Team, understand our value proposition, products, services and broader contribution to the economy.
