Founder: George F. Armstrong
Armstrong is a high-performance tire that, thanks to a tread design and an innovative rubber compound, provides not only a high degree of safety on dry and wet roads but also driving comfort.
Initially, the main activity was the production of inner tubes for car tires. Subsequently, the company began mass production of pneumatic tires for trucks.
Throughout his career, Armstrong has made an invaluable contribution to the development of the tire industry.
- It is the first company to manufacture bias tires with fiberglass cord that do not overheat when driving at speed.
- It uses the technology of “cold” production of synthetic rubbers.
- It uses Tredlock technology (manufacturing of belts with woven layers that increase the strength and reliability of the rubber construction).
- The company for the first time reinforced products with Kevlar.
Armstrong cargo tires are characterized by strength, reliability, endurance, and performance, ensuring safe movement in all road and weather conditions.
The volumetric drainage systems on any Armstrong tire are designed to provide capacity and roominess. This makes it possible to quickly remove water or melted snow, prevent aquaplaning and slashing.
History of the brand
The history of the Armstrong brand began in the United States in 1912, when tire dealer George Armstrong from New Jersey decided to establish its own production of first tubes and then pneumatic tires for the automotive industry. The business grew rapidly, and by the early 1960s the company’s sales exceeded $200 million, making it the fifth largest tire manufacturer in the country.
In the late 1980s, Armstrong was bought by the Italian company Pirelli, and in the mid-1990s the production of tires under this brand was stopped.
The revival of the Brand is credited to 2012 when Armstrong was bought by Arabian distributor Zafco. The new era of the company began with the production of truck tires, and then they were joined by tires for cars, light trucks, as well as SUVs and pickup trucks.
