Kenda Hosts 60th Anniversary Celebration

Kenda Hosts 60th Anniversary Celebration

The tire maker has grown to encompass four global technology centers and 23 manufacturing and assembly facilities.

Kenda recently commemorated its 60th Anniversary with a celebration at its Kenda American Technology Center (KATC) in Canton, Ohio, hosted by Chairman and President Jimmy Yang.

Kenda was founded in the countryside of Yuanlin, Taiwan, by Mr. Chi-Pao Yang and under his guiding principles of honesty, quality, service and innovation, which are core values that still today serve as guideposts, Kenda says.

In the past six decades, the company has grown to encompass four global technology centers and 23 manufacturing and assembly facilities with product offerings across all major tire segments including: automobiles, bicycles, wheelchairs, powersports, trailers, golf cars and lawn and garden equipment in addition to steel wheels and roofing products. 

“It takes an unwavering adherence to strong values and quality products as well as dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable team members to earn the privilege to celebrate 60 years as one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers,” said Yang. “In conjunction, we are thrilled to debut several innovative new product lines engineered and designed in our American Technology Center, as well as the Kenda eUniversity platform, all of which further demonstrate our commitment to better serving our loyal customers, the industry and the communities in which we operate for the next 60 years.” 

New products introduced during the event included the Rush and Karma 2 bike tires, as well as Kenda’s Klever M/T2 (KR629) off-roading light truck tire – just a few of the many innovations to position Kenda for success as it drives full throttle into the future, the company says.
