Uniroyal

It all started with a small shop for rubber goods in Liège, Belgium. Uniroyal has since grown into one of the major players: more than 30,000 tyres carrying the umbrella symbol - which identifies rain tyres - are now manufactured on a daily basis.

The key dates in our company history
1868: Oscar Englebert opens a business for rubber goods in Liège.

1894: Englebert starts to experiment with tyres, initially for bicycles and horse-draws vehicles.
