Grupo Andrés Neumáticos will once again participate in the international trade fair “The Tire Cologne”, which will take place from May 24th to May 26th 2022 at the heart of Cologne, a German city. The leading independent tire distributor in Spain and Portugal will be located at stand E038 Hall 8 at the Koelnmesse Exhibition Centre. This trade fair, which took place for the first time in 2018 and was very successful in terms of participation, will serve as an important forum in the industry´s international agenda, thereby boosting the tire sector and becoming a debating space in light of the new challenges the Global Market faces.
The international department of Neumáticos Andrés will showcase the outstanding results of its ongoing internationalization project, by virtue of which the company currently exports 25% of its sales to over 30 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.
“Our participation at The Tire Cologne will enable us to strengthen our position within international markets, well beyond the domestic market. Moreover, considering that this is the most important event for the B2B business, this trade fair will serve as the ideal forum to reinforce current business relationships and to develop new international relationships”, states Grupo Andres’ CEO, Eduardo Salazar.
With over 30 years of experience within this sector, Grupo Andres has become a benchmark for international tire distribution. Moreover, this company has ties with the world’s major tire manufacturing groups, and has become the most profitable choice for garage professionals. In 2021, Grupo Andrés’ tyre division achieved a turnover of 219 million euros and more than 7 million on-line orders through its B2B sales platform, a milestone that confirms the success of the business strategy followed by the company over the last few years.
