V.S. Industry Tyres Co., Ltd. was founded by Mr. Wanchai Srichot and is located in Samutprakarn province (the Bangkok area and perimeters), Thailand on October 21, 1994. Since its founding, V.S. started by producing retreaded solid and truck tires for the local market.

This research result has been used to develop our solid tires, which are more efficient, save more energy, and can be used longer than competitors. This research was also awarded as one of sixteen outstanding research projects out of 1,600 projects nationwide.
Since 2013, the Thai Office of the Board of Investment (BOI) has supported our company in developing the production line and export activities.
