Committed to the responsibilities of the tyre wholesale trade
By looking at the shared history of Bohnenkamp and BKT, a lot can be revealed about our own development, our reliability towards customers and partners, and our continually fresh ideas for a successful, partnership-based future. We spoke with our Chairman of the Board Gregor Rüth and the Head of Overall Sales Thomas Pott about the previous, very dynamic years and future perspectives.

The Indian tyre manufacturer BKT has grown significantly over the past ten years. The company with headquarters in Mumbai, India, has opened two production facilities as well as its own industrial waste production plant. The expansion of production capacity and the growth-promoting investments in research and development have positioned BKT well to serve the sectors OTR, agriculture and industry worldwide with tyres. We spoke to BKT Chairman Arvind Poddar during the anniversary celebrations.
25 years of partnership between BKT and Bohnenkamp
BKT brand tyres have been part of our company's standard product range for 25 years. We celebrated the partnership that has connected us ever since with a joint event in Osnabrück to mark the anniversary. Time to look back - and set the course for the future.

A modernised production of carbon black, a significantly expanded tyre mould manufacturing, new products such as rubber tracks and a further expansion of the brand's own power plant support the brand expansion plans.
Lawn tyres for the 2023 season
Whether on the football pitch, golf course, green belt or parklands – wherever grass grows in top condition, lawn mowers and other lawn care machines should drive on special lawn tyres. However, not every type of lawn tread is suitable for every application. For maximum lawn protection, it's worth taking a closer look at the main use and type of use – and at the lawn tyre range from Bohnenkamp AG.
