Hankook Tire will launch a new global tire brand next year to boost its brand value. The firm will keep its existing brand for high-end customers and the new brand, to be called Laufenn, as an affordable alternative, a spokesman said Thursday. Laufenn comes from the German "laufen," to run. The brand will be launched in the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region in 2015 and elsewhere later.
