I started my blog as an outlet and to express my love for my children, photography and cooking. I currently work full time in Family Medicine and love my career working with patients. I have two young boys who love soccer, fishing and cars.
I am looking forward to sharing the Canadian love with you all and meeting new friends!
Sailun Tires manufactures and distributes various types of passenger and truck tires in all major markets through out North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. They focus on safety, performance and value. They produce tires in the value tier of the tire market.
To truly appreciate the information we were given we were invited to put the tires to the test. For roughly four hours, each of the Brand Ambassadors were given a chance to participate in a blind test in two cars with two different sets of tires on them. We had to go through an obstacle course two to three times in each car with a professional driver and were encouraged to drive fast and hard as well as braking quickly. I was so nervous and excited at the same time. There were two different courses to participate in that day.
What an experience this was! By the time I reached the second course – I could definitely detect the difference in the tires in two major areas. The first area I noticed the major difference in was the way in which the tires held and gripped the pavement. The Sailun tires held to each curve and did not give me the fear that the car was sliding a bit. I felt confident with each sharp turn at fast speeds. The second area I noticed the difference in was when I had to complete a short and quick stop at a higher speed. The tires responded quickly and efficiently to ensure I was able to complete this task.
The best part of my day: being in the back seat of one of the professional drivers! I have never been in a car going that fast and making such sharp turns – I was laughing and screaming the whole time!!
Sailun Tires has made great strides in the tire industry despite its short history. Sailun currently invests approximately one third of its resources in research and development. In 2009, Sailun, together with the Qingdao University of Science and Technology, were nominated to develop a National Tire Process and Control Engineering Technology Research Center to build the optimal technical research platform to promote tire technology. Key technical issues in the tire manufacturing process are studied and solved to move the tire industry forward in the quest for improved technology and the production of a high quality product. Sailun is the first tire manufacturer to integrate production, research, and product demonstration into the development of new products. Utilizing both BPSO design technology and three-dimensional design visualization to reduce the tire design period and improve overall quality. Sailun’s computerized tire production and manufacturing process 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 advance information technology to help trace the data of each tire produced, and benchmarking against leading international standards of quality and design.
Quality assurance is of utmost importance to Sailun and its advancement in the industry. Its mandate encompasses all aspects of the organization such that all processes are measured and monitored to ensure the integrity and quality of all raw materials meet specifications. Sailun Tires’ advanced tracking system records the status and state of every single tire produced at the factory, from creation to customer shipment. All tires undergo a final inspection process to ensure that the product shipped from the factory meets international expectations in addition to fulfilling regulatory and market requirements.
