Magna chief executive Michael de Ruijter said:“We expect OBO Tyres to be an attractive add-on for existing Magna Tyres customers but also an opening to new markets."

OBO Tyres owner Herman Hutten added: "There are many synergies between the companies which both will benefit. It will undoubtedly result in a better market position in the retreading business. With Magna Tyres as the new owner, the company will continue in the way as I have always seen it - sustainable retreading professionals."
