COMPETITIVENESS

  • Sumitomo is a tyre company and so we have the economy of scale in raw material purchase so we can offer the highest quality at

competitive prices

  • On our production floor, we only have 2 general workers & 1 supervisor in each shift so labour costs are low
Therefore, having the economy of scale for raw materials, and not being labour intensive, we must be COMPETITIVE. So, what goes into the mould is critical! Recycled rubber equates to cheap pricing, poor quality and all other risks associated, in the short and long term. We STRONGLY encourage rubber analysis testing to determine the contents of the rubber properties. If the density of the test results show a greater value than 1.2 g/cc, recycled rubber is present. Recycled rubber is basically “DEAD RUBBER” and so is heavier.
