Tire manufacturer Hankook is continuing to expand its testing and development capacities in Europe, with a new building on the premises of Applus+ Idiada in Spain now in operation.
Hankook has been a tire partner with Idiada from the outset of the facility’s operations and was involved in the expansion of the test tracks on-site. With the new investment, Hankook says it will be able to achieve more efficient operations for European tire development in the future.
The new test center has been equipped with modern, automated and completely paperless test logistics, covering all processes from the recording of results to storage and transportation of data. In addition, the 20-strong test team, which is affiliated to the Hankook Europe Technical Centre in Hanover, Germany, now has modern offices, recreation and social rooms.
