Since January 1, 2017, I am the managing director of the Federal Association of Tire Dealers and Vulkaniseur-Handwerk e. V.Â (BRV) in Bonn, Germany. In the summer of 2017, when our CEO Peter HÃ¼lzer retires after three decades, Hans-JÃ¼rgen Drechsler and I will take over the management of our association.

Once more, the Tyrexpo Asia takes place in Singapore from March 21st to 23rd, 2017. The most es-tablished tire trade fair in Southeast Asia is the meeting place for regional suppliers and buyers from all over Asia. As of Tuesday, more than 300 high-caliber exhibitors will present the latest trends in the tire industry on more than 15,000 square meters of exhibition space.
In recent years, the tire industry has grown strongly and offers manufacturers and producers great opportunities in the market â€“ both regionally and globally. Tyrexpo, which takes place every two years in Singapore, provides the industry with a platform for exchange, brings together manufac-turers, customers and decision-makers, helping to make the most of the great market potential. The fair specifically addresses tire producers and interested parties from the four most important regions of the world – India, Europe, Africa and South-East Asia.
Even more attractive, even more international and in the heart of one of Europeâ€˜s largest industrial hotspots: The wheels of the tire industry will be spinning in Cologne from 29 May to 1 June 2018. Until the fair starts, we will publish articles and news about tires, wheels and car service on THE TIRE COLOGNE blog. We will focus on issues and developments that move the industry and provide information about special topics and events at the fair.
