Established in 2002 in the National Economic and Technological Development Zone in Qingdao, China, the conception of Sailun was a logical step for the tyre building equipment designer and manufacturer, Mesnac Co. Ltd., to showcase the high quality tyres their equipment is capable of producing.
Since establishment, Sailun Tires has combined its technical expertise with the innovations of its research and development to design and manufacture world class tyres for all types of vehicles. Sailun is one of only two factories in China that possess Approved State Level Tyre engineering status. Sailun has completed an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in mid 2011 and established its first foray into the motorsports industry.
Investment in a new plant in Vietnam is underway and scheduled for production in 2013. This which will replicate the systems and processes employed at their Qindao plant, because of their huge global success.
In July 2012, Sailun also announced its entry into agreements to acquire Shenyang Peace Radial Tyre Manufacturing Co. Ltd and also purchased 49% shares in Shandong Jinyu Industrial Co. Ltd. which will enable Sailun to expand its current production capacity significantly.
