Kahn Design signs up Cooper as official tyre

DUBAI, October 7, 2017

Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe said it has been designated as the first "Official Tyre" of Kahn Design, a UK-based company that specialises in the modification of motor vehicles in key global markets.

Cooper is an American company that specialises in the design, manufacture, marketing and sales of replacement automobile and truck tyres, and subsidiaries that specialise in medium truck, motorcycle and racing tyres.

Under this deal, Cooper will be the tyre of choice for a variety of Kahn’s coach-built vehicles, for which the Middle East is an important market, including its renowned range of coach built Flying Huntsman models, which are designed by the founder and Design Director of the Kahn Group himself; Afzal Kahn.

In addition, certain Chelsea Truck Company vehicles, also produced by the Kahn Group, will be fitted with Cooper’s acclaimed Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Sport tyres, said a statement from Cooper.

Already present in the Middle East, with retail partners in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Kahn Design’s bespoke creations are personalised to exact individual specifications to guarantee a completely unique vehicle.

Whether exploring exciting outdoor adventures or cruising through the urban environment, Kahn design’s range of Chelsea Truck Company vehicles serve a wide range of purposes, said the statement.

Eye-catching models such as the coach built Flying Huntsman 6X6 Pick Up and Flying Huntsman Longnose editions, Jeep Black Hawk edition, End Edition Defender and a plethora of Range Rover models have been snapped up by discerning buyers across the GCC and Lebanon.

This new partnership links Cooper’s passion for performance and off-road know-how with Kahn design’s design coach building and manufacturing expertise. Both brands share important core values – both are driven by success and are unrelenting in their quest for the highest quality performance.

Cooper Tire Europe's marketing director Michiel Kramer said: "Choosing the correct tyre is vital so it is a massive endorsement of the quality of our products that the Kahn Group has hand-picked Cooper as its ideal choice of tyre."

"Cooper’s range of tyres is known for its exceptional grip, handling and braking, so this is a great platform for us to demonstrate our long-standing expertise in producing tyres that are designed to handle all surfaces, both on the open road and off road," noted Kramer.

Cooper Tire has a variety of tyres options available to meet the varying conditions of Middle East roads; the Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport, which offers outstanding grip and handling, as well as the latest generation of its most popular off-road tyre, the Discoverer STT Pro which delivers serious traction, durability and treadwear, he added.

With tyre needs from tough and functional to urban chic, Cooper was an ideal choice, remarked Group CEO, Afzal Kahn.

"The reliability, safety and performance of Cooper tyres is extremely high, just the way we need it for our customers to have the best driving experience we can offer," he noted.

"Cooper's tyres work well in all the conditions that Chelsea Truck Company customers usually come across both on the open road and off-road. Cooper has such a rich history, so the two companies linking up makes perfect sense," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
