HF TireTech Group and Qingdao Doublestar expand their successful cooperation

Date: August 13th, 2015

Cooperation HFTTG-QDS-Manufacture of Downstream Equipment in China

This year marks the first anniversary of the cooperation between the two companies. The foundations for the partnership were laid a year ago, since then Qingdao Doublestar has been manufacturing truck tire curing presses for the Chinese market using HF’s know-how, HF engineering and HF’s extensive experience in this area. Initial successes have already been achieved. The cooperation is characterized by an intensive exchange of knowledge, training and quality assurance provided by HF.

Now both partners agreed to extend their cooperation. In the future, Qingdao Doublestar will manufacture downstream equipment based on HF’s Extrusion Technology for the Chinese market; the state of the art upstream equipment for all Co extrusion Lines to be sold in China will continue to be engineered and manufactured by HF.

With this collaboration HF is strengthening its market position and QDS is getting access to HF's advanced technology. Existing HF customers are not affected by the agreements and will continue to be advised and supported directly by HF.
