Default Maxxis Tyres opens its first factory in India

Maxxis Rubber India - a Maxxis Group company, has launched its first manufacturing facility in Sanand, Gujarat.

The company has invested Rs. 2,640 crore in the new facility that is spread across 106 acres. It currently employs 600 people but the workforce is expected to grow to 2,000 within 5 years. The plant will churn out tyres and tubes for 2-wheelers and has a capacity to produce 20,000 tyres and 40,000 tubes per day. With this, the company aims to increase its market share in India to 15% within the next 5 years.

Maxxis is the OEM tyre supplier for Honda 2-wheelers, Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra, Tata and Jeep in India. The company will initially also export to South Africa, with other countries in the Middle East and Africa to follow.

I've never seen a car come from the showroom with Maxxis tyres. Which cars from the above brands come shod with Maxxis tyres from the factory?

Nissan Micra came with Maxxis tires as OE fitment sometimes back. I couldn't recall the other brands / models but remember seeing them on some TATA vehicle.

Always happy to see more & more companies investing in India . Want to sell it here? Build it here.

Hope they also launch a range for 4x4s. Some of the Maxxis models are very popular in the offroading community.

For passenger cars, I expect them to target the lower end of the food chain (in price & performance). Not a brand I'd consider for any of my regular cars, but I might for the Jeep.

Four wheeler tyres will still be imported I guess. This is a two wheeler tyre factory.

There are no more 4x4 Maxxis tyres imported. I was hoping it will be made in India.

Anyhow, Maxxis ruled the 4x4 segment, and better players are yet to dominate.

With the larger ticket sizes, I'm sure that 4-wheeler tyres will follow soon. There's no reason for Maxxis not to, considering their global range and that Maxxis 4-wheeler tyres are already available in the market.
