The New Products department is responsible for the design of new tyres when requested by the Marketing department. Working within a project team, we develop a new product line in two to three years. An attractive aspect of the work is that these project teams include various disciplines, which guarantees a great deal of variety. I also enjoy the direct and significant influence we have on the end product as a project team. Due to the close cooperation with mother company Apollo, our activities are becoming increasingly international. This makes the work even more challenging.
