Malaysia has emerged as one of the most favoured destinations for investment in the tyre industry from China. Tyre producers from China are increasingly looking for alternative bases for tyre production, and Malaysia, being a major rubber producing country, provides ideal conditions for such a foray in the Far East region.

Established in 2003, Qingdao based Chinese tyre manufacturer Fullrun Tyre Corp,.Ltd is currently building a new production facility in Malaysia. Fullrun’s Malaysian entity is incorporated as Golden Horse Rubber Sdn Bhd, and proposes to have an installed capacity of 3 million PCR and 1 million TBR tyres. The plant is under construction at Port Klang Free Trade Zone (PKFZ). 

“The Malaysian plant is expected to commence commercial production by October-November this year, commencing with PCR tyres initially. The plant will also produce 500,000 TBR tyres in the first phase,” informed Vic Liu, Sales Manager, Fullrun Tyre Corp. Ltd during the China International Tire Expo in Shanghai recently. The production of TBR tyre is expected to be further hiked by 500,000 pieces in the second phase.

Fullrun manufactures tyres under the brand names Fullrun, Autogrip, Antyre, Carbon Series and Fullway for TBR, PCR, VAN, SUV, LTR, AGR, OTR and claims to export 90% of production, with turnover from overseas business touching $400 million and domestic sales RMB 250 million in 2011.  

The company has more than 1,000 dealers in 150 countries and has sold 60 million PCR and 16 million TBR tyres in last decade. Originally established as Qingdao AN-TYRE Trade Corp. Ltd, it was renamed Qingdao Fullrun Tyre Co., Ltd. in 2005.
