Kumho Company Profile

Kumho LogoKumho has a similar background and business ambition as Hankook and the two companies have been neck and neck for most of their existence without one clearly outpacing the other. Growth has been based on exports, particularly to developing nations but Kumho, too, has recognized that it needs manufacturing facilities in its key markets and it now has plants in China and Vietnam and is building a plant in the USA. It already has technical centres in both Europe and the USA. However, the financial problems of its parent company have sharply constrained the company's own ambitions.

An Apology

Half the world uses the word "tire" whilst the other half uses "tyre". Unfortunately search engines don't realise that they mean the same. In order to be recognised by the search machines we have had to resort to the irritating strategy of duplicating the two words. Sorry!
