Double Coin’s Thailand Plant Now Working at Full Capacity
Double Coin and CMA recently announced that their manufacturing facility in Thailand is now working at full capacity to bring out OTR and TBR products.
“Our new Thailand manufacturing facility has full OTR and TBR availability and the production capacity to fulfill container-level orders,” says Tim Phillips, Vice President of Marketing and Operations for Double Coin/CMA. “Not only does this production facility have the capacity to meet the demand for commercial tire products, we are offering them at competitive prices since they are not subject to AD/CVD or tariffs penalties associated with products produced in China. With many of our competitors having to rely on China alone, Double Coin customers will be in an excellent purchasing position in the face of product shortages and higher prices from China. Some U.S. suppliers claim they have production availability in Vietnam or Thailand, but it remains to be seen if older plants in these areas that are already running at full capacity can offer any additional TBR and OTR products. The combination of our new state-of-art manufacturing facility and warehousing in Thailand where we can offer very competitive pricing, Double Coin is emerging as the clear choice for TBR and OTR tire products.”
The company’s Thailand facility is spread out over a massive 3.6 million square foot area. The facility has the capacity to produce more than 1.8 million TBR tires in addition to over 50,000 OTR tires. The entire manufacturing facility is not only integrated with the SAP management system but also controlled by the MES software (Manufacturing Execution System). Double Coin/CMA have plans in their pipeline to expand further at the Thailand facility.
“In addition to our production capacity at our Thailand facility, we currently have full capacity of Double Coin tires at our 5 warehouses in Memphis, TN; Rancho Cucamonga, CA; Vancouver, Canada; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Queretaro, Mexico,” concludes Phillips.
