Test World Reinforces its Position as Europe’s Premier Winter Testing Facility and Brings its Expertise to the Tire Technology Conference
  • Jukka Antila, technical director, Test World, to speak at conference to explain benefits of repeatable, year round winter tyre testing
  • Tire Technology Expo & Conference will be taking place in Hanover, Germany from 14 – 16 February 2017
  • Test World, based in Ivalo, Finland, specialises in vehicle and tyre testing, and is best known for having the world’s first facilities which make testing on natural snow available twelve months of the year

Jukka Antila, Test World’s technical director, will address delegates on the second day of the Tire Technology Expo Conference. Mr. Antila will present on the challenges test managers encounter when needing to test tyres on snow and ice, or on wet and dry surfaces, and Test World’s unique proposition for dealing with such challenges.

Mr Antila will provide a unique insight into Test World’s indoor tyre testing facilities. Test World’s Indoor 1 and 2 contain expertly prepared natural snow from March to December. Outdoor tracks complete the testing season on snow from November to April, with an extension of the indoor possibilities expected in the future.

Test World recognises that development is not a seasonal enterprise. Whether the testing is carried out by Test World, or whether the customer chooses simply to hire the facilities, the purpose-built tracks ensure highly repeatable, accurate results that are highly valued by tyre and passenger cars test teams alike.

Test World is part of Millbrook Group, which enables its customers to benefit from access to the test tracks in the UK, the finest available commercially anywhere in the world, and other facilities. The teams in Finland and the UK can undertake the full suite of tests necessary during the development, certification and labelling of tyres.

Test World offers a unique visitor experience and is increasingly becoming an event destination by organisations wishing to take advantage of the incredible test tracks, the first-class local tourist attractions and excellent flight connections.

Now in its seventeenth year, Tire Technology Expo is fully-established as one of the industry’s most important tyre manufacturing technology exhibitions and conferences. The conference is renowned for pulling together a formidable roster of speakers who represent the world’s leading experts in all aspects of tyre testing, technology and development. It is an unrivalled opportunity to meet other leaders in the sector to share insight and discuss key issues for the coming year. The team will be at the expo on stand 8028 to discuss everything that Test World has to offer.
