Top products are the outcome of thorough knowledge of usage conditionsNokian Heavy Tyres Ltd, a manufacturer of high-quality special tyres, is a part of the Nokian Tyres Group. The company focuses on narrow product segments. It is known as a pioneer in special tyres, particularly in the field of forestry tyre development. The company has a global market share of 30% in forestry tyres.
In addition to forestry tyres, Nokian Heavy Tyres' core products include harbour and mining tyres, special agricultural tyres, as well as other machinery tyres, e.g. for industrial use, earth moving and road maintenance. Nearly all of the products are manufactured at the plant in Nokia, Finland.
Since the 1960s, Nokian Heavy Tyres has designed special tyres for forestry machines using the so-called cut-to-length (CTL) method developed in the Nordic countries. Thanks to its environmental friendliness, the CTL method is quickly gaining ground from the full-tree (FT) method, which is used, for example, in South America, Asia and parts of North America.
Reliable partner tested in authentic situationsMaterials and structural solutions tested in authentic usage conditions enhance the tyres’ reliability and flawless work. Nokian-branded tyres are known for their high quality, which users experience as numerous effective hours of use and flexibility of work under demanding conditions. The long-term co-operation with leading machine manufacturers has generated solid know-how and a thorough understanding of the customers' needs and various conditions of machine usage.
Apart from the products, the comprehensive partnership is also tested in the field. We are where our customers are – in the forest, on the field, at the harbour – and we continuously develop our service concept to better respond to our customers' needs.
