Belarus based tyre maker Belshina intends to establish an office for distributing its products in Brazil this year. Parent company Belneftekhim reports the office will be located in Sao Paulo and is scheduled to open this autumn. The Brazil office will distribute a wide range of Belshina products on the Brazilian market, including truck and agricultural tyres - products the company notes are most in demand there.
The company's export sales increased 48 per cent during the first half of 2010, states Belneftekhim, with almost two million tyres shipped to overseas destinations. Domestic market sales accounted for 43.2 per cent of the total during the six-month period
