The firm operates 12 globally benchmarked “sustainable” production facilities, 9 of which are in India and 3 of which are in Mexico, which together manufacture over 33 million tyres a year. The firm serves the passenger, commercial, farming, off-road, and 2-3 wheeler market sectors. The first “Smart Tyre” technology ever introduced in India was developed by JK Tyre. It is a cloud-based monitoring system that keeps track of the tyre’s key parameters, including pressure and temperature. Additionally, the business maintains a strong network of over 650+ brand-specific stores under the names Steel Wheels, Truck Wheels, and Xpress Wheels, as well as over 6000 channel partners. After one each in Sikandrabad, Kolkata, Pune, and Bhiwandi in Maharashtra, Maersk’s new facility in Bhiwandi will be the fifth warehouse to go online in 2022. The property has great connection to the manufacturing centres and the Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Mumbai thanks to its strategic location on the Mumbai-Nashik route.
