Productivity, safety, environmental protection – your priorities are the same as ours
High Quality Tires
Technological leadership, quality products and services, operational efficiency, industrial strength – these are the solid assets which enable Michelin to give our customers the best service.
With 6,000 people involved on three continents, an annual Industrialization Research and Development (RDI) budget of almost 750 million dollars and a portfolio of more than 2000 families of patents, Michelin has uncomparable innovative strength in the tire field.
Michelin is also one of the world’s key players in the tire industry. Setting out over a century ago to open up the major markets, we have the benefit of exceptional geographical coverage and are speeding up our deployment in emerging countries.
For the Earthmover segment, there are now seven industrial sites dedicated to the manufacture of Earthmover and Industrial Truck tires which will help you to increase your productivity. We have doubled our Earthmover tire production capacity in 6 years and we anticipate investing over 1.8 thousand million dollars over the next five years.
Do Better with Less
From the choice of raw materials to the recovery of tire products at the end of service life, all of our products are designed with a constant concern for safeguarding the environment at every stage in their life cycle.
Architecture, design, choice of materials -, we take in account of the environmental objectives right from the tire design stage.
Our production processes are also thought out and standardized so as to use less energy and reduce the consumption of materials, for example, by making Earthmover tires 5 to 10% lighter than our competitors.
Studies have shown that it’s when the tire is in use that its' impact on the environment is greatest. In the Earthmover field, we therefore get directly involved with our customers and use all of our experience and expertise to reduce the part the tires play in their carbon footprint.
Safety at the Heart of Our Concerns
Safety is in the Michelin Group’s genes, first through the quality of our products which are designed to deliver maximum safety.
Secondly, more specifically for the Earthmover field, our products are tested all year round in real working conditions on our test site, the only one of its kind in the world, at Almeria, Spain.
Many of our technological innovations are focused on improving safety. Finally, we have the benefit of the best experts in tire use including safety in the field. We are therefore able to offer you an ever-increasing range of services, which makes its own contribution to your increased safety.
