Dongying Fangxin Considering Expansion

Dongying Fangxing to Expand Production Capacity

Shandong based Dongying Fangxing Rubber Co., Ltd. is considering a further increase in production capacity. Established in 1998, the Chinese TBR, PCR and OTR tyre producer is currently operating its plant to full capacity. “We are evaluating raising the existing plant capacity further depending on market demand,” said Liqin Liu, Manager, Dongying Fangxing Rubber Co Ltd in an interaction at the CITEXPO at Shanghai recently.

The expansion plan is at the initial stages and is dependent upon improvements in the global trade scenario, which is tough at the moment, considering reverses experienced by the Chinese tyre industry in the international market. It has become difficult to export to some of the key international markets like the US and EU in the recent past, and overseas shipments are the major revenue generators for the Chinese tyre producers.

When asked, if there is any plan of a new plant outside China, Liqin Liu has not ruled out completely and replied, “It could be considered but nothing has been finalised as yet as it all depends upon how the market behaves in the future.”

The Shandong plant produces 3 million TBRs 2 million PCR and 100,000 OTR tyres annually under the brand name Glede, Opals, Naaats, Wind Long, Autostone & Himalaya.

The company has set up over 100 sales points across China, spread over more than 30 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions. It also exports to more than 50 countries and regions mainly to Europe, Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Latin America.

In the EU, Spain, Portugal and Italy are the company’s biggest market, where it exports tyres under the Opal brand. Mexico, meanwhile, is the key market in Central America, whilst exports to the US are limited.

“We have the required certification to export to India, which is one of our important markets in South Asia, but exports to the country have been affected after the imposition of anti-dumping duties on the imports of Chinese TBRs by India,” she informed.

The company’s plant is located in Guangrao County in Dongying, Shandong, is spread over a floor area of 600,000 square metres, and employs more than 2,000 people including over 200 engineering and technical personnel.

“我们拥有出口到印度的认证,而印度也是我们在南亚的重要出口市场之一。 然而,自从印度开始对中国卡客车轮胎征收反倾销税后,我们的印度出口业务也受到了影响。”
