Oak drives Davanti into Asia, marks emissions milestone

Davanti Tyres heads to Asia this month as part of the independent UK-owned brand’s bid to expand within the lucrative regional market.

The move comes just weeks after the company behind the brand, Oak Tyres, said it had reached an environmental benchmark — offsetting 5,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions in association with Ecologi — which Oak said is the equivalent of nearly 13 million miles driven in a car.

Oak’s sustainability milestone was announced on Earth Day on April 22. The company said it had offset the 5,200 tonnes CO₂e from its van fleet by funding 22 different carbon avoidance projects, as well as funding the planting of more than 57,000 trees for forestation and reforestation plans worldwide.

Meanwhile, Davanti will feature at Tyrexpo Asia in Bangkok from May 15-17, showcasing 20 different tyres including the popular DX and UHP Protoura Sport ranges as well as the brand’s first dedicated mud terrain tyre — the Terratoura M/T.

Expo visitors to the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre will also get a sneak preview of Davanti’s latest ranges, including Ecoura HP1 — a high-performance, efficient passenger car tyre.

Establishing the Davanti brand in Asia has been a focus of the tyre manufacturer over recent years.

Davanti general manager Peter Cross said the event will be an opportunity to further build relationships and awareness of its product range.

Davanti is one of the flagship brands of Oak Tyres, which is featured in the May 2024 issue of Aftermarket magazine. Click here to read more in the digital edition online now.
