The strong foundations of Lombard Tyres drew the interest of Kumho Tyre, which has given Lombard the sole distribution rights for passenger- and light truck tyres in Southern Africa. This partnership has acted as the catalyst for expansion and exporting of Kumho Tyres into the rest of Africa.
As from 2011 Lombard Tyres established the Kumho Associate Dealers (K A D) network which is an independent Tyre Fitment centre Network Nationwide. The dealers (To date 40+ K A D dealers) that form part of this program have been individually chosen by Kumho Tyres South Africa and Lombard Tyres because of their extensive tyre knowledge and technical expertise.
Kumho Tyres was established in 1960 and is now ranked as one of the top ten tyre companies in the world. Kumho Tyre have a global presence across 180 countries and produce more than 68 million tyres every year.
