Falken Zone: New support programme for Falken tyre dealers launches in Italy, Spain and Greece

Falken Tyre Europe has established a new affiliate programme and support network for its wholesalers and retailers. ‘Falken Zone’ launched in July 2020 in Italy, Spain and Greece – the brand’s key southern European markets – with plans to roll out the new network in other European countries.

Through the network, Falken intends to make sales conditions more attractive for retailers with commercial support that spans digital purchasing schemes, promotions at point of sale and incentive programmes. Alongside, a marketing support package will help with everything from point of sale through to innovative digital support tools and the complete customisation of stores.

As Europe begins to move again, sales are expected to increase, coinciding with Falken resuming its participation in the NLS championship and its countdown to the Nürburgring 24h-Race in September.

As the European affiliate of Japanese tyre manufacturer Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd., the fifth largest tyre manufacturer in the world, Falken has experienced strong and consistent growth in its original equipment business. With Falken Zone it wishes to mark a new era of improved collaboration with distributors and retailers with the aim of improving consistency and results.

“Falken sees great strength in the southern European market and wants to increase its support of dealers with Falken Zone,” said Markus Bögner, COO and President of Falken Tyre Europe GmbH. “It is essential for us to work closely with our retailers, especially during such a difficult period across the automotive industry. Falken Zone allows us to do this in a collaborative way, as well as get closer to our end consumers, who will be able to find information on Falken’s new products and innovative technologies via the network.”
