We recently became the first Korean tyre manufacturer to receive Renault’s Quality award. It was made to our COO and Senior Vice President Sechang Park during a Supplier Award event held in October at Renault Group’s world headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt, France.
We were one of 11 global supply partners to receive the award from Renault CCO Thierry Bollore and the Executive Vice President Purchasing of Renault-Nissan, Christian Vandenhende.
A Kumho representative said: “The achievement of the award, which means so much coming from such an influential car manufacturing company, is largely based on the quality of the tyres we have been supplying. It is to be hoped we can continue to build on the excellent relationship that now exists between Renault and ourselves.”
We are a key supplier to the Group, and its products equip vehicles within the Renault (Captur), Nissan (Rogue), Renault Samsung Motors (SM5 and SM7), and Dacia (Logan) ranges. Also the sole tyre supplier for Renault Samsung Motors’ electrically-powered SM3 ZE since its debut last October.
