RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (Feb. 13, 2019) – The Giti Tire manufacturing facility in South Carolina has completed an audit by Volkswagen to supply two tire sizes for the 2019 Volkswagen Passat.
“The successful audit by Volkswagen was the result of solid teamwork over a period of six months and a great step forward for the Chester County plant to produce ‘made in America’ tires for one of the world’s leading automakers,” said David Dobradenka, director of OE sales, North America for Giti Tire USA. He noted that production of tires for Volkswagen will commence in the first quarter.
Dobradenka added, “One of our stated goals when we announced the Chester County plant was to become a valued original equipment supplier in North America, and this is a tremendous step forward in that direction.”
