 Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. (hereinafter "SRI") is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of UK based Micheldever Group Ltd. (hereinafter "Micheldever") from Graphite Capital Management LLP. The acquisition was previously announced on January 5, 2017.

 Having a greater degree of freedom to expand its business in Europe following the dissolution of an alliance agreement with Goodyear in October 2015, SRI has been active in taking measures to strengthen its production capabilities and expand its sales.

In addition to sales to over 6,000 retailers and auto-repair shops nationwide in the UK as a tire wholesaler, MTS owns and operates about 100 tire retail outlets under the "PROTYRE" brand. MTS generates sales of about 6 million tires per year.
