Magna Tyres expands OTR tyre production at Netherlands factory
New capacity was added to keep up with the fast growing demand for the 26.5R25 and 29.5R25 OTR sizes
Earlier this year Magna Tyres Group started the production of its 'Made in Holland' products at the Hardenberg factory in the Netherlands. Six months after the opening event in January, the first expansion, which almost doubles the production capacity, has already been completed. New capacity was added to keep up with the fast growing demand for the popular 26.5R25 and 29.5R25 OTR sizes.
The 29.5R25 Magna MA02 is an E3+ / L3+ tyre and is designed for wheel loaders, dumpers, scrapers and bulldozers. The wide shoulders increase the contact surface for more traction. The rubber compound, which is used for all OTR tyres from Magna, provides protection against chip and chunk and tread wear and the reinforced shoulder and sidewall protection offers resistance against impacts. The carcass is all steel radial and the advanced construction with improved belt layers contribute to improved comfort and heat build-up resistance.
The 26.5R25 Magna M-Terrain is an E4 tyre designed for heavy dumper applications in day mines, excavations, scrap processing sites and for transports in underground mines. The same wide shoulder area that is characteristic of the MA02 is also found in the M-Terrain and provides more grip in challenging off-road conditions.
