Experience right for Great Plains
Nokian Tyres North America president Tommi Heinonen said: “Glen’s track record of success working for a tire manufacturer and a tire distributor will help him expand Nokian Tyres’ sales network for commercial tires in his territory.”
“Nokian Tyres is investing to grow our market share in the Great Plains region because we have excellent products that can uniquely meet the needs of 21st century equipment applications. From forestry to agriculture tires, durable commercial grade tires that perform in demanding conditions are an important piece of Nokian Tyres’ business.”
Heinonen said Hutson’s appointment is an example of Nokian Tyres’ focus on its commercial customers, ensuring the full line of commercial products is available throughout North America.
Nokian catering to demands of Great Plains industry
The company said the Nokian Tyres TRI 2 tractor tire and Country King agricultural trailer tire are “well suited to the needs of the Great Plains region because they have the versatility to perform well in the field and on the road.”
It said the new Logger King LS-2 skidder tire was “designed to hold up to the weight of the new heavier forestry equipment, helping the tires last longer in the extreme conditions of modern logging.”
