Winner From The Start
By TA News Bureau:
Over a short period of time since its establishment Shandong Fengyuan Tire Manufacturing Company has grown to become a winning example of China’s new generation tyre companies. Committed to quality through innovation, it already has won the description “The New Dark Horse” in the country’s tyre industry
Shandong Fengyuan Tire Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is located in Yicheng Economic Development Zone, Zaozhuang City, Shandong Province. It is close to Beijing-Taiwan Expressway, Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail, Zaolin Expressway, Qingdao Port and Rizhao Port. The project is owned by Shandong Energy (Among the world’s top 500) enterprise Zaozhuang mining group, and is a state-owned holding. The project planning is for an annual output of 20 million semi-steel radial tyres through research and development, manufacturing and sales marketing.
Targeting high-end products the company has adopted the technology, and equipment from global leaders like the Netherland-based VMI’s EXXIUM – a molding machine, the Italian steel wire calender, the German Terraz four composite and other international advanced equipment and has built a world-class semi-steel tyre production line. Using the world’s advanced tyre manufacturing synchronization technology combined with finite element autonomous noise analysis, independent research and development production of low roll resistance, low noise, safe and environmentally friendly green tyres. Production and sales doubled year after year, with an annual output of 10 million high-performance semi-steel radial tire production capacity, the company is 39th among Chinese tyre enterprises in 2017. This has prompted Fengyuan Tire to be called “the new dark horse.”
The company has HP, UHP, C-type light truck, SUV, snow tyres, drift tyres and other 23 series. There are more than 800 specifications of products that adhere to the European tyre label regulations in performance and quality. It has received ISO / TS16949, ISO14001, OHSAS18001 , ISO / IEC17025 accreditation certificates, through the DOT, ECE, GCC, inmetro, CCC mandatory certification, the first batch of China’s tyre label and China’s green tyre certification, the first batch of “same line with the same quality” that is the first batch Access to national low-carbon product certification of enterprises.
The “Farroad” brand was rated as well-known trademark in Shandong Province. The focus is on achieving international quality reputation. It won the 2017 China Rubber Industry Association recommendation for brand products. It is among the top 10 brands of China Snow tyres.

New products, new technology
Fengyuan Tire pays attention to technological innovation. The low temperature single-stage rubber mixing technology was authenticated by the national institute of chemical industry of science and technology. Its carbon nano tubes tyre application has won appraisal from the National Petrochemical Federation of Science and Technology. Both of the above technologies have reached international advanced level and laid the company’s leading status in tyre industry.
Low temperature single-stage rubber mixing technology project was started in November 2013, and was completed in January 2016 successfully. The system is a continuous and intelligent rubber mixing production assembly line, the whole process of rubber mixing closed-loop fully automatic seamless and formed the detection closed-loop, combined with the concept of environmental protection intelligent, add rubber oil purification technology, new solid material application, all these factors make low temperature rubber refining production technology process intelligent operation, stable and efficient environmental protection production.
Carbon nanotube tyre
Shandong Fengyuan Tire is the first to come up with the concept of carbon nanotube anti-static tyre, and start mass production. According to the test by a third professional party, carbon nanotube tire is much better than normal ones on electric conduction, mechanics and heat conduction. Its volume resistivity is at least 5 orders of magnitude lower, effectively avoid the negative influence caused by static, prevent fire and car spontaneous combustion, and improve the control and braking capability on wet and dry land, which provide safe, quiet and comfortable experience.
Fengyuan Tire company develops “triple-protection tyre”: anti-blast, anti-air-leaking, anti-static. Compared with traditional tyre, carbon nanotube tyre is applied with special strengthening technology. Even if damaged, this tyre still can keep some running by its good supporting performance. There is an additional anti-blast ply in it, whose puncture resistance performance is good, effectively preventing air leaking caused by puncture. Carbon nanotube tyre is good at static conductive. Tyre resistivity is 3 orders of magnitude lower than international standard, which can release the static gathered on cars, achieve the aim of tyre comprehensive security.
Fengyuan Tire company always insists producing high quality products, and establishing high level brand development orientation. It has launched a lot of high-tech new products: all climate tyre, studded snow tyre, white ring tyre, colorful letter tyre, drifting tire. They can satisfy different demand of different markets, provide comfortable driving experience for consumers.
