Apollo Tyres will undertake a partial reconstruction of its main tyre warehouse located in Enschede, the Netherlands. The goal of this project is to enhance operational efficiency and minimise its environmental impact. The redevelopment, led by Heylen Warehouses, a private logistics and semi-industrial real estate firm, will take place on the existing site and is slated to be completed by February 2025. The current warehouse, referred to locally as the ‘VDC’ warehouse, has been continuously in operation since 1947 and handles products for Apollo Tyres’ two primary brands: Apollo Tyres (for trucks, buses, and off-highway vehicles) and Vredestein (for passenger cars). The site is responsible for the storage and distribution of over five million tyres annually. The plan involves demolishing 25,000 square meters of the existing warehouse on December 1, 2023, followed by reconstruction with the installation of solar panels on the roof. These panels will generate renewable energy for the facility, reducing Apollo Tyres’ reliance on grid power.
