Manufacturer Info:

Nokian Tyres plc (Finnish: Nokian Renkaat Oyj) is a Finnish manufacturer of tires for cars, trucks, heavy duty equipment and bicycles. It is the largest car tire manufacturer in the Nordic region. Headquartered in Nokia, Finland, Nokian (which were originally branded as Nokia tires) was split from the then conglomerate Nokia (which later became the world's largest mobile phone vendor) in 1988. Nokia Corporation no longer has any ownership interest in Nokian Tyres, whose largest shareholder (with an 18.9% stake) is the Japanese tire vendor Bridgestone. However, Nokian Tyres still operates as an independent company.

In the bicycle industry they are known as one of the few manufacturers of metal studded snow tires.

Nokian Tyres also runs the Vianor tyre chain, which is the largest and most extensive tyre franchise in the Nordic countries with approximately 190 retail outlets across Finland, Sweden, Norway, the Baltic countries and Russia.

Nokian Tyres is the largest tire manufacturer in the Nordic countries. The company develops and manufactures summer and winter tires for cars and tires for a range of heavy machinery. It is also the biggest retreading materials manufacturer and the biggest retreader in the Nordic countries. In addition, Nokian Tyres runs the Vianor tire chain with over 200 outlets across Finland, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Latvia and Russia. Some Vianor outlets operate on a franchising basis.

Key markets include Nordic countries, Russia, North America, Eastern Europe and Alpine area, i.e. countries with demanding driving conditions caused by changing seasons or other reasons.

The company’s product development, administration and marketing functions are located in the Nokia facility in Finland. The company has two factories, one in the town of Nokia in Finland and the other one in Vsevolozhsk, Russia. The Russian factory is a new one; the operations started in the summer 2005. Certain products are produced as contract manufacturing in other tire manufacturers’ factories for example in the USA, Indonesia, Slovakia and China. Nokian Tyres has its own sales companies in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Russia and the USA.

In 2005, Nokian Tyres booked net sales of EUR 686.5 million and employed 3,201 people. Of that Vianor Tyre chain employed 1,297 people and the Russian factory 172 people.

Nokian Tyres plc was founded in 1988 and it was listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange in 1995. The company’s roots go back all the way to 1898, when Suomen Gummitehdas Oy, or the Finnish rubber factory, was established. Passenger car tire production began in 1932 and the company’s best-known brand, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta tire, was launched in 1936.

The corporate web site for Nokian Tyres is found at www.nokiantyres.com.
