First delivery of Apollo truck tyres from Hungarian plant
Apollo Vredestein has started production and delivery of Apollo truck tyres from its new factory in Hungary. The first of these truck tyres – in the type Apollo 385/65 R22,5 Endurance RT HD – are now being used by Piessens & Zonen from Londerzeel, Belgium, a company specialised in the transport of construction materials.
“We are especially pleased with the excellent price/quality ratio of the Apollo tyres,” say Patrick and Danny Piessens, owners of the company. “Prior to making the purchase we carried out very stringent tests and the results showed all the characteristics of a premium tyre. The majority of our trucks and trailers have now been equipped with Apollo truck tyres.”
Apollo Vredestein started supplying Apollo truck tyres in 2017 and has since sold a large amount in Europe. The number of European clients discovering the benefits of Apollo’s truck tyres continues to grow. In addition to the favourable price/quality ratio, limited rolling noise and excellent grip, customers benefit from an excellent cost-per-kilometre ratio. It is no coincidence that the first tyres from the Hungarian plant have been delivered to Belgium. It is the country where Apollo truck tyres were first introduced. With a market share of now 2.1 per cent, the country has become an important market for the brand.

Five-year warranty and buy-back guarantee
In partnership with European clients, Apollo’s truck tyres have been tested on over 300 million kilometres and proven their exceptional durability. With this in mind, Apollo has given its tyres names starting with ‘ENDU’, for endurance. All the truck tyres have at least a C-label for fuel consumption and an A-label for wet conditions – a unique performance for premium truck tyres. Apollo also gives a five-year warranty on any manufacturing issues and a buy-back guarantee for the carcass as the tyres can be equipped with an entirely new tread.
