Did you know that Michelin is the inventor of the tire as we know it today?

Constant development for sustainable, resource-saving mobility

As one of the largest tire manufacturers worldwide, Michelin produces special tires for almost every means of transport: for cars, vans, trucks, buses, agricultural machinery, earthmoving machinery, special vehicles, light rail vehicles, subways, airplanes, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles. The product portfolio covers a wide spectrum: The smallest tires have a diameter of 20 centimetres, the lightest tires weigh just over 200 grams. The largest dump truck tire has a diameter of over four meters and weighs more than five tons. Every seventh tire worldwide comes from the Michelin Group 

Distinctive Lifestyle
What all Michelin products, services and services have in common: they convey a unique experience with the MICHELIN brand – just like Michelin Lifestyle products. Michelin Lifestyle has been part of the group since 2000 and integrates the strengths of the MICHELIN brand into carefully selected product groups related to mobility, such as shoe soles for different purposes. The soles combine Michelin's passion for innovation, creativity, performance and adventure in just a few square centimeters - as well as more than a century of experience.
High Class Kitchen
The brothers André and Édouard Michelin already demonstrated this far-sightedness in business development with the MICHELIN guide, today the most renowned restaurant guide in the world. It is at the forefront of the wide range of restaurant and hotel guides, maps and mobile travel apps.

He is known around the world and for many people he is the figure of identification: the Michelin man. Hard to believe that the eternally young Michelin man is already approaching his 130th birthday. In 1894, company founder Édouard Michelin saw a wrapped stack of tires at the world exhibition in Lyon, in which he recognized human-like features - the rest is history. Today, the Michelin man is much more than a logo: lively, personable, honest and with a high reputation. For the Financial Times it is the best logo ever (2000).
