Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. recently announced the creation of a sales office in Moscow, Russia.
“Russia holds great opportunity as Cooper continues to build our customer base throughout the region,” said Jeff Schumaker, managing director for Cooper Tire Europe. “With the acquisition of the Cooper Serbia production facility in Krusevac, Serbia, which began operating just over a year ago, Cooper products can be brought to the market and better meet customer needs through the new sales office. Cooper Tire is committed long term to the Russian market and looks forward to maintaining its existing customer relationships and establishing new ones in the region.”
The new office will be headed by Alex Kolkov, sales manager, who joined Cooper after serving in leadership roles at other multinational companies in Russia.
