We created Tatko brand tires because of an increase in demand for domestic tires by our dealerships and consumers. Tatko brand started manufacturing agricultural tires in 2014 and added production of light commercial tires in 2018. Tatko brand reached a wide product range with 166 SKU and is currently exporting to 54 countries, contributing seriously to the economy.
Light Commercial Vehicle
Before to the production of Tatko brand tires, in the 1950s, there was an excessive demand for tire retreading in Turkey as there were no domestic tire manufacturers. To meet that demand, in 1954, Tatko established the first tire retreading facility in Mecidiyeköy, where Astoria Mall is located today. Tatko’s tire retreading journey began with the brand-new hot retreading technology and advanced in the 1990s through precured and orbit system retreading technologies. Tatko is the oldest and the biggest tire retread manufacturer in Turkey with an annual production of over 4,000 industrial tire retreads and over 30,000 truck tire retreads.
Tatko KMS Department (Rubber and Consumables Supply Department) is a solution partner to over 200 tire retreading facilities; providing consultancy, enhancing facility productivity and providing various material supply. Thanks to the Turkey distributorship of Kraiburg and Vipal brands, which are amongst the leading tread cap and consumable accessory manufacturing brands of the world, Tatko can supply retreading customers with high quality and affordable options.
