PRAGUE, December 11, 2013 — At Agritechnica, Mitas signed a long-term agreement with CLAAS to supply Continental and Mitas branded farm tires for CLAAS combines and tractors.

“Our cooperation with CLAAS is excellent. We are continuing our collaboration, which dates back to 2004, when Mitas acquired the Continental farm tire manufacturing division,” said Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ marketing and sales director. “One of the proof points is the supplier award from 2011, when CLAAS awarded Mitas as Supplier of the Year for Innovation for Mitas’ CHO tire,” added Mabin.

Today CLAAS uses Mitas manufactured Continental and Mitas branded farm tires in their plants for combines, tractors and forage harvesters in Germany, France, Russia and the United States. In recent years, Mitas has become one of the major tire suppliers of CLAAS globally.
