Sailun Tyres have built up an enviable reputation throughout the world as the manufacturer and provider of high-quality, great value premium economy tyres. Covering a number of applications, Sailun manufactures research-led tyre patterns for every type of day-to-day use.
Sailun was established in 2002 in the National Economic and Technological Development Zone in Qingdao, China. Now, Sailun is capable of producing 41.6 million PCR tyres, 7.3 million TBR tyres, and 33k tons of OTR tyres and sells them in over 50 countries worldwide. From the outset, the Sailun tyre company has combined technical expertise with innovative research and development to design and manufacture world-class tyres for all types of vehicles.
Sailun selects only world-class partners and recognised leaders in their specific technological and rubber industry specialisation. Sailun's growth is attributable to its commitment to three core values – Quality products, service you can Trust and lifetime Support. Sailun is With You Through Every Turn.
Sailun has five factories, four located in the northern part of mainland China and one located in Vietnam. Via a corporate warehousing facility, Sailun distributes its tyres globally through a precisely-appointed professional network of tyre distributors.
Sailun works closely with every single distributor to ensure that the local Sailun opportunity is maximised in the most relevant and appropriate fashion – Think Global, Act Local. To this effect, we have established local sales reps and offices in the United States (Miami), Africa (Algeria and Nigeria), Europe (Birmingham), and Australia (Brisbane), we have also developed an R&D Centre at the Sailun Europe office. Building on the strong foundations of real-world testing, Sailun will continue to develop the most advanced and cost-efficient platform for tyre manufacturing and distribution - while utilising its information technology and substantial research resources to help establish new tyre patterns.
Sailun has made great progress in the tyre industry despite its short history. Sailun currently invests over 30% of its resources in research and development. In 2009 Sailun, together with the Qingdao University of Science and Technology, was nominated to develope and build the optimal platform to promote and enhance tyre technology, thus creating the National Tyre Process and Control Engineering Technology Research Centre.
The Center studies and resolves key technical issues in the tyre manufacturing process. The vision of the Centre is to move the tyre industry forward through the quest for improved technology and the production of higher quality products. Sailun is the first tyre manufacturer to integrate production, research, and product demonstration into the development of new products. The Centre now employs over 300 technical specialists.
Sailun's computerised tyre production and manufacturing processes - in conjunction with management techniques and network control systems - allows it to effectively monitor quality control, resource management, marketing, administration and logistics. In addition, Sailun uses advanced information technology to help track the data of each tyre produced, and to benchmark the Sailun tyre quality against other leading international standards of quality and design. Sailun collaborates closely with academic institutions to develop and improve formulation techniques, tyre structure, tyre testing methods, and information technology.
Sailun is accredited internationally and certified to meet the most stringent quality standards and the highest levels of quality assurance. Sailun is proud to have received the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval for its Sailun Atrezzo and Ice Blazer tyre line ups. PTPA is North America's largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 50,000 parents.
