innovation and High-tech combined with tradition

Michelin, tyre manufacturer with a global foot-print, employs 115,000 and has sales organisations in over 170 countries. Spurred on by its vision of environmentally friendly mobility, the company develops, produces and sells tyres for almost all vehicle types. For the continuous development of its sophisticated products and technologies, Michelin operates several test and development centres in Europe, the US and Japan. The company has demonstrated its cor-porate responsibility in many ways, for example by organising the Michelin Challenge Bibendum - one of the largest forums for sustainable mobility worldwide - since 1998.In 1931, Karlsruhe became Michelin`s fi rst pro-duction site in Germany. Today, this production facility is a recognised specialist for the production of lightweight truck tyres within the group. Its highly automated production lines are state of the art in the industry. Michelin produces a wide range of tyre sizes, primarily for the European market but also for Japan, Mexico and North America.Innovations are first priority, which is one of the reasons for becoming a partner in the Rhein- Mobil project, a cross-border mobility model. The project, promoted by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development, is to prove in a three-year international test that electric vehicles can be operated economically in certain applications.
