The company name comes from the German city Fulda, not far from Frankfurt, where the brand was founded.
Fulda’s first catalogue contained many rubber products, including shoe soles, mats for bottles of mineral water and beer, and rugs. As for tyres? Yes, but theses were initially only for horse carriages and baby buggies.
Fulda tyres have been associated with Maybach luxury cars on two occasions: In the 1930s, they were tested in collaboration with the Maybach brand, and in the 21st century the Carat Exelero model was assembled on the 700-hp Maybach (Exelero) prototype.
The company’s products are manufactured in 13 factories and annual sales for this brand reach approximately 10 million units.

The Early Years
Production began in 1901 and the first catalogue contained a wide assortment of everyday rubber products, including shoe soles, bottle washers and floor mats. In fact, Fulda’s first tyres were designed for children’s prams and horse-drawn carriages.

Fulda quickly began producing both bicycle and motorcycle tyres before releasing its first automobile tyre in 1906.

The firm supplied its customers with ten different types of tyre treads and a one-year guarantee on all its products.
