Introduction

History
The history of Kumho Tire began in the year of 1960 by the first production of tires. Please take a look at Kumho Tire’s development story to understand how we have become one of the top 10 global tire manufacturers with endless innovation and developments.
2010’s Expansion in the global market
Kumho Tire has completely focused on the development of “products that customers desire” from the planning stage to the development stage, as can be seen in the case of launching Majesty SOLUS, a premium tire, and Eco-Wing S, an eco-friendly tire. Through an honest communication with customers through SNSs like Facebook and Twitter, the company has made efforts to reflect customers’ needs into its products and services proactively. In May 2011, TTORHO, the mascot of the company was created and has been loved very much since then. As the social accountability of businesses has been highlighted ever more, the company has practiced social contribution activities in diverse sectors around the world, such as the Pink Ribbon campaign and sponsor for child education.
