Madison, Tennessee -- Marangoni Tread North America Inc. has boosted tread rubber production capacity by 25 percent at its Madison Alpha-Ring factory.
The firm said it hiked production to handle the growth in North America, and provide better service to its Ringtread retreading system dealer network on the continent. The Madison plant-which is now shipping Ringtread retreads to other Marangoni global markets-is scheduled for further expansion in 2009, according to Marangoni.
The firm increased output by adding 14 percent more Ring moulds to the site.
