celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia

NEXEN TIRE sponsored the KBS Symphony Orchestra performance at the ‘Rudolf Firkutšný Piano Festival’ on November 25 in Prague, Czech Republic, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia.

As NEXEN TIRE is planning to open its new, fully-automated manufacturing plant in Zatec near Prague, where its subsidiary is located, the company took part in this meaningful celebration. Through the sponsorship of the KBS Symphony Orchestra, NEXEN TIRE hopes to work side by side with the Czech Republic and promote cultural exchanges.

KBS Symphony Orchestra, one of Korea’s finest symphony orchestras boasting a wide range of repertoire and performance experience, has been invited to participate in the 100-year celebration of the Czechoslovakia foundation as a representative of Korea. The orchestra toured in three cities across the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and the ‘Rudolf Firkutšný Piano Festival’ in Prague was their first stop.

Travis Kang, CEO of NEXEN TIRE, stated, “As one of the Korean companies that actively operated in the Czech Republic, we were excited to be a part of the country’s biggest celebration. With the opening of the Europe plant, NEXEN TIRE hopes to be recognized as a representative tire manufacturer in the Czech Republic”, adding, “We will also continue to contribute to society and further establish our presence in the European market.”

NEXEN TIRE has been actively expanding its business operations in Europe. The company has recently relocated its European R&D facilities and head office in Germany, in addition to establishing the Europe Plant in the Czech Republic.

After the opening of the new Europe Plant, the company will be able to further strengthen its position and accelerate sales growth by expanding the original equipment (OE) tire supplies to major European automakers. The company currently supplies OE tires for leading global car manufacturers in Europe such as Porsche, Fiat, Renault, Volkswagen and its Škoda Auto and SEAT units.
