Trucks: a market for the future
Another significant market in which Hutchinson is making considerable investment is the Trucks market, which produces 2.5 to 3 million tonnes of heavy-goods vehicles each year. Hutchinson, whose customers include major manufacturers from both Western and emerging countries, is making a real impact in this market: our prime attribute is the fact that we offer a wide range of products to automotive production sites having already reached high performance levels. Furthermore, we know how to handle increasingly severe engine environments while complying with new emissions control and fuel economy standards.
