Cooper dedicates technical center

Cooper Tire Asia last week dedicated its new Asia Technical Center in Kunshan, China, near the Cooper Kunshan Tire manufacturing plant, approximately 30 miles from Shanghai.
The 54,000-square-foot center was relocated from Shanghai to a new building constructed for Cooper’s research and development activities, and 65 material scientists and tire engineers.
It is one of four technical centers Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. operates, including one in Findlay.
The China center features state-of-the-art testing equipment, and expanded research and development capabilities to design and develop new passenger and truck tires primarily for China and the Asian market.
