Hankook becomes a leading Global Tyre Company
Leading the driving industry through high-tech innovation.
As part of the 80th Anniversary of our founding, in 2021 we started building production facilities in Chongqing, China, and Bekasi, Indonesia, greatly strengthening our capacity for growth. In addition, Hankook was named the official tyre supplier for Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) in Germany, one of the world’s top three touring car competitions, and began the groundwork for yet another research centre with technologically advanced equipment in 2014.
Our future aim is to reinforce our global competitiveness by strategically investing in a skilled labour force to expand R&D. Fostering creative and competitive personnel is also a goal at Hankook as we strive to continuously do our part as a member of the global community and grow in tandem with the world.
We are proud of our 80-year-long history and are paving the way for the future with a commitment to create new possibilities and overcome challenges that lie ahead. With our customers and society always in mind, our aim is to contribute to the development of the driving experience worldwide.
