Sailun has made great progress in the tyre industry despite its short history. Sailun currently invests over 30% of its resources in research and development. In 2009 Sailun, together with the Qingdao University of Science and Technology, was nominated to develope and build the optimal platform to promote and enhance tyre technology, thus creating the National Tyre Process and Control Engineering Technology Research Centre.
The Center studies and resolves key technical issues in the tyre manufacturing process. The vision of the Centre is to move the tyre industry forward through the quest for improved technology and the production of higher quality products. Sailun is the first tyre manufacturer to integrate production, research, and product demonstration into the development of new products. The Centre now employs over 300 technical specialists.
Sailun’s computerised tyre production and manufacturing processes – in conjunction with management techniques and network control systems – allows it to effectively monitor quality control, resource management, marketing, administration and logistics. In addition, Sailun uses advanced information technology to help track the data of each tyre produced, and to benchmark the Sailun tyre quality against other leading international standards of quality and design. Sailun collaborates closely with academic institutions to develop and improve formulation techniques, tyre structure, tyre testing methods, and information technology.
Sailun is accredited internationally and certified to meet the most stringent quality standards and the highest levels of quality assurance. Sailun is proud to have received the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval for its Sailun Atrezzo and Ice Blazer tyre line ups. PTPA is North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 50,000 parents. The PTPA Winner’s Seal is evidence of a product’s excellence from having been evaluated by unbiased parent testers.
