The company was the first foreign manufacturer to provide the research and development of 31-inch UHP radial tires for the U.S. Air Force. It is widely acknowledged as the ‘science and technology powerhouse’ in Korea. Products are made to adhere to the highest quality and safety standards in their design, processes, sale, after-sale support, and manufacture.
Kumho is also continuously working hard to grow its parent company’s effort to expand its global operations. Kumho Business is already trusted by customers from 180 countries across the globe. In 2016, the tire manufacturer opened its first plant in Macon, Ga.
It had already entered into a marketing agreement with the NBA two years earlier. The team in particular was the Atlanta Hawks. It was the team closest to the new plant at the time. Kumho is the official tire partner of the G-League and NBA, as well as the Hawks.
