LUXEMBOURG CITY, Luxembourg (June 18) — Industrial tire and wheel maker Solideal International S.A. has opened two additional distribution centers in Mexico and renamed its distribution company in Turkey to identify it more closely with Solideal.
In Mexico, Solideal de Mexico opened a branch location in Monterrey in April and in Hermosillo in late May to serve customers better in those regions, said Richard Le Borgne, general manager.
The two new centers join existing branches in Mexico City and Guadalajara. The new centers will serve customers in the Mexican states of Nuevo Leon, Coahuila and Tamaulipas as well as Monterrey, Le Borgne said.
Solideal did not disclose its investment in these assets. The Monterrey center is 10,760 square feet in size.
In Turkey, Solideal´s subsidiary there, World Endustriyel Lastik, renamed itself Solideal Lastik Ticaret Ltd. Sirketi in early April to solidify in customers´ minds that it is a member of the Solideal Group, not just a distributor, said Ali Yetkin, general manager.
