A decision was taken in 2012 to restructure Apollo Tyres’ research and development team across three regions with consumer tire development led from Europe and commercial vehicle tires from India. In January 2013, the company opened its consumer tire R&D headquarters, Apollo Tyres Global R&D BV, in Enschede, The Netherlands. Apollo plans to employ close to 150 people at that site.

In its annual report for the 2012-13 financial year, Apollo Tyres stated that it expended a total of Rs 406.88 million (£4.07 million) on research and development, 0.48% of turnover for the year. (Tyres & Accessories)
