Ramat-Hasheron, Israel -- Pelmar Engineering said it has acquired tyre making machinery from the Alliance Tire factory in Hadera, Israel. Pelmar said in a statement, "Alliance Tire Company (1992) Ltd. has reduced PCR production since April 2009 and completely stopped production in September 2009. The reason is tough competition coming from low cost foreign tyre manufacturers and almost non-existence of import duties on tyres in Israel."
Pelmar said the equipment includes 1st and 2nd stage Marangoni tyre building machines, Steelastic machine, Apex machine, 30 x 40.5â€ tyre curing presses, bladder presses and D-70 uniformity machine.
Alliance was bought in July 2007 by an Indian company, which built a new tyre plant in India which came on stream in mid-2009.
Alliance bought the assets of GPX at the end of 2009 and continues to make industrial, OTR and agricultural cross-ply and radial tyres in the Hadera plant.
