“Kumho has developed a reputation for building tires that offer exceptional performance and quality at a reasonable price,” said Dave Hudrlik, Kumho’s vice president of sales and marketing. “That reputation has enabled us to establish a major presence in the replacement tire market in the U.S. Our next goal is to establish a major presence with OEMs in the U.S. Opening a sales office in Detroit and hiring Steve Drake are two big steps in that direction.”
