AVON Tyres is one of Europe’s leading tire manufacturers with a long and rich history. Founded in 1885, the company relocated to the banks of the River Avon in Melksham, England in 1890, where it remains to this day.

A pioneer in tire production, AVON initially produced solid tires, and built their first pneumatic tire production facility for automotive tires in 1901. A consistent innovator in many aspects of tire manufacturing, AVON was among the first companies to manufacture a popular cord motor tire in the 1920s.

In 1933, AVON tires were chosen as Original Equipment on Rolls-Royce cars. Additionally, AVON tires are known for also having been fitted as Original Equipment to top vehicle marques such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Morgan.

AVON was producing 1.5 million bias ply tires annually in 1961, partly due to the recognition they received for developing a tread rubber compound that greatly enhanced wet road grip.

Through the 1970s AVON was at the forefront of radial tire development, which with their much greater durability, first complemented then superseded their cross ply (bias ply) predecessors.

AVON started automobile race tire production in 1981, and established its own international racing tire division in 1983. Read AVON Tires Racing History for more information.

Worldwide expansion increased steadily, and in 1997 the company was acquired by Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in the United States to create Cooper-AVON Tyres Limited.

Cooper-AVON Tyres Ltd. was the first tire manufacturer in the world to earn the prestigious ISO 9001 quality award.

From its humble beginning as a rubber products manufacturer in a former cloth mill, AVON Tyres' progress has been remarkable.
