Apollo Tyres Ltd today unveiled its new corporate identity and vision ‘Driving
Progress, Together’ setting the path for the next five years. As a parent company for both the
Apollo Tyres and Vredestein Tyres product brands, Apollo Tyres Ltd is committed to bringing
together a global community and fostering a diverse and inclusive culture, that powers
innovation to transport, both its business and society forward.
This vision is supported by the organisation’s purpose, ‘Enabling Excellence’, a belief that
excellence should be universally accessible, and the company’s role is to connect people
globally to the tyres, tools and support they need to reach their potential.
Commenting on the need for the new identity, Neeraj Kanwar, Vice Chairman & MD, Apollo
Tyres Ltd said “Our industry is going through a sea change, and with the increasing rate of
transformation in key areas of our business, it is time for us to embrace that change. Our
ambition is brought to life in our new identity. A company which has been built on strong
foundations, relies on the creativity and energy within the organisation to forge ahead.”
With this corporate identity, the company has built a new purpose and vision for the whole
organisation that everyone can identify with. The current Apollo Tyres logo will continue as
the identity for the product brand – retaining the strength of the brand equity already
established over many years. The exciting new identity unveiled last year for the Vredestein
Tyres brand, building on its European heritage, will continue as well.
The five key pillars to realise the company’s 5-year vision are Digitalisation, Technology &
Innovation, People, Brand and Sustainability. With the global pandemic accelerating the
pace of digitalisation, and several changes in the industry including electrification and
autonomous driving, this is a key focus area for the company as it continues to grow. In
addition, the increased focus on EVs, autonomous driving, VR and use of AI to improve safety
and sustainability, will make Technology a key pillar for Apollo Tyres Ltd. Multi-cultural and
diverse teams have better business outcomes and are more likely to be innovative and agile,
and hence People become one of the key pillars for the company. Brand will continue to be
a key focus area for the company as it aims to further strengthen its two product brands –
Apollo Tyres and Vredestein Tyres. With the target of being carbon neutral going forward,
Sustainability is critical to business success, increasing the use of renewable materials and
reduction in waste being key goals.
The new corporate identity has been created by London-based design-led creative
company Jones Knowles Ritchie.
