The company's collaboration with leading OEMs like Liebherr, Rokbak and many quality end users across the globe has led to their 14 sales offices worldwide and India is going to be their 15th.

Magna Tyres Group already has a strong footprint in India through their Middle East and Africa (MEA) office. A constant growing demand for Magna products in India and continuous enquiries has spurred the company to initiate their first office in the country for enhanced focus and reach. 

Magna Tyres Group has selected Kolkata city in Eastern India for their Pan India Office to start with. Magna President & CEO - Michael de Ruijter says, “Our decision to operate from Kolkata was mainly due to the region’s proximity to seaport and mining belt in the country. In due course Magna Tyres plans to open offices in all the major cities in South, West and Northern India.” 

Magna Tyres is also delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Akash Gupta as Country Manager for the new India office who is renowned as a highly successful specialist within the Indian market with over ten years of experience in the tyre industry.
