Our history

1970

1970s

1972 sees production beginning on the first steel-belted Fulda passenger car tyre, the Rasant, followed in 1973 by the Kristall Winter, our first non-studded radial steel winter tyre.

In 1978 we launch the Y2000, our first high performance, low aspect ratio tyre, quickly becoming a market leader for tyres of this type.
