Vittoria: 50% Production Increase at Lion Tyres

BANGKOK, Thailand – Italian tyre expert Vittoria recently opened at its Lion Tyres production facility in Thailand a new production hall. This results in a 50% increase in production capacity, which was hard needed after the serious delivery problems Lion Tyres was faced with at the start of this year.
The delivery problems were caused by a collective lay-off of 399 employees in November. The dismissal of almost half of the work force of the Bangkok based tyre maker, was the result of an illegal strike. In the meantime Lion Tyres hired 270 new workers and the new workforce is now experienced enough to soon resolve the delivery problems. Rudie Campagne, MD of the Vittoria Group Campagne expects that by the end of March production to be back to the pre-strike level. Lion Tyres is not only producing tyres under the Vittoria and GEAX brand names, but also under lots of other international private labels. (JB)
