Federal

Federal Tire was founded in Taiwan in 1954. Technical cooperation with Bridgestone Corporation from 1960-1979 and with Sumitomo Rubber Industries (Dunlop Tires) from 1981-2000 has given Federal the necessary and strong technical capabilities and know-how to produce our own brand tires today – Federal Tires. Today, Federal has established a strong network of overseas distributors with more than a hundred national/regional representatives throughout 70+ countries. Domestic channels are managed by our subsidiary, Federex Marketing Corporation, and through the years, distribution in Taiwan has grown strongly and penetrated each and every corner of the island.

With state-of-the-art technology, strict quality control, and highly regulated safety standards, Federal continues to develop innovative, quality tires for the UHP, SUV, LTR, and PCR lines.

Bolstered by new and better UHP, SUV and winter tires, and our ever improving full range of other high quality tires, Federal is presently enjoying tremendous growth. We will continue to focus on and constantly improve customer satisfaction, on-time and prompt delivery, and our after-sales services.
