The Kinforest Tyre Co. Ltd. was first established in late 2007. The roots of the organization date back to as early as the year of 2000 when it bought tyre production technology and equipment from another company called Firestone. In the year of 2006 Kinforest formed a joint partnership with the company, Continental and finally in 2007 the Kinforest Tyre Co. Ltd. was set up. The Kinforest, Starlake, Dailway and Mayrun brands are based on the Kinforest Company. Their huge catalog of products includes light truck tyres, UHP tyres, winter tyres and passenger car tyres. All the products of the company have received certifications from INMETRO, S-MARK, SABSAND, NOM, DOT and many other international and domestic certification organizations. The company is also the first Chinese tyre manufacturer to gain the ECE rolling sound certification.

The products of the company are sold in more than 170 different countries and are available in every continent of the world.
