Who we are?

The formation of the Association was the outcome of the unanimous decision of representatives of the HTA member companies, and Péter Urbán, CEO of Bridgestone has been elected as its first President.
The Municipality Court registered the organization under the number 14619 on October 18, 2011.

Since its establishment, HTA has been a member of the European Tire and Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA), a central association of the European tire industry since 1959, and has its office in Brussels.
