Falken Tyre Europe wins the VRÖ Award for the third successive time

For the third time in a row, Falken has secured first place in the passenger car tyre category of the bi-annual VRÖ-Awards from the Association of Tyre Specialists, Austria.

Criteria such as customer relations, delivery service, handling of complaints, product quality as well as sales policy and marketing were factors in deciding who would win the prestigious 2017/2018 award.

"This first place in the VRÖ ranking shows, once again, that our tyres are doing very well in the mid-premium segment,” says a delighted Günther Riepl, Senior Sales Director Austria, Swiss and Eastern Europe. “This award not only honours the quality of our tyres, but also the work of Falken’s Austrian sales team. Therefore, I would like to thank the VRÖ for its trust, as well as my team and the colleagues in the field and office for securing this award."

The VRÖ prize is awarded for both car and truck tyre categories and all VRÖ members are entitled to vote. The award was presented by James Tennant, VRÖ chairman, during the AutoZum exhibition, which was held from 16th to 19th January 2019 in Salzburg.

Artificial intelligence set to improve tyre durability and performance with "Tyre Leap AI Analysis"

Falken’s parent company, Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd (SRI), has developed new technology that utilises artificial intelligence (AI) to predict the properties of rubber and detects how structural changes, due to load and wear, will affect performance throughout a tyre’s lifecycle. The data collected through “Tyre Leap AI Analysis” will support engineers to create longer lasting tyres with more consistent performance over time and is a key element of SRI’s “SMART TYRE CONCEPT”.
