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.
