Apollo Tyres show the way
This video has opened my eyes to the modern way that tyres are now made? I have been a tyre guy all my life and it is something that gets into your blood. Once in tyre always in tyres. Even after a short break as a fire fighter, i returned to my beloved tyre industry and worked there right up to the present day.
All my life the tyre industry has been portrait as a dirty job and indeed it was. I have visited several tyre factories in my many years in the trade and believe me they were dirty smelly places full of
chemicals and rubber of course.
The tyre industry also used to brag about the fact that every tyre was man made. Yes one guy would make one tyre. (known as the tyre builder). he would literally stand at his machine and build a tyre from all the relevant materials, eventually coming out with an inside out tyre”
The tyre would then be placed in a mold of the correct size, where it would be subjected to high temperatures and eventually would pop out as a new tyre of the correct size.
I advice you to take a look at this excellent Apollo Tyres show the way video, where Apollo tyres show the way to modern tyre production methods. This opened my eyes and i would truly love to visit a modern tyre making plant ,to witness this with my own eyes.
I always thought that when you had seen one tyre made then you had seen them all, but not after this Apollo Tyres show the way video?
Apollo tyres are one of the up and coming tyre manufacturers in the world market as they improve their products by buying companies with much tyre manufacturing experience, such as their recent acquisition of Vredestein tyres, famous for their winter tyre range.
