Test World has been nominated for the ‘Tire Industry Supplier of the Year’ award in the Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence, recognising recent investment in the vehicle and tyre winter test facility.
Since opening in 1991, Test World has benefited from continual investment. With the addition of new indoor test facilities in 2018, it is the first in the industry to offer testing on natural snow, ice and wet and dry asphalt in one location, 365 days a year. Independent control of asphalt surface temperature and air temperature allows accurate control of test conditions and allows customers to explore specific aspects of tyre performance such as traction and braking on black ice.
The Tire Technology International Awards are the world’s biggest celebration of endeavour in the field of tire development and manufacturing. The awards are decided by the votes of a 30-strong panel of experts from the tire industry and academia. The winners will be announced during the Tire Technology Expo at a Gala Dinner in Hannover on the evening of March 6.
Jukka Antila, Technical Director at Test World, said “We are delighted and honoured to have been nominated in the Tire Technology International Awards. This nomination comes after continued investment in the Test World facility, and the most recent expansion sets us apart in the tyre testing industry. Test World is the ultimate destination for customers needing cost-effective certification, development and labelling tests. We keep our customers costs to the minimum because we can do so many tests in one multipurpose location. We work closely with tyre manufacturers, and our role as a supplier is critical, so we are pleased to be named among the best.”
Test World has previously been recognised by the Tire Technology International Awards, winning ‘Tire Industry Supplier of the Year’ in 2013.
Test World has its own test team that carries out evaluations for customers, from tyre manufacturers to industry magazines, providing a fast and reliable service throughout the year. The team also travels the world to support customers with summer tyre testing at various locations. In addition, customers often hire Test World’s innovative facilities to carry out their own test programmes.
