Mezoszilas, Hungary --The latest Bandag franchise dealership 5-Let Ltd. has opened a new retread plant in Mezoszilas, Hungary. This â‚¬ 2 million project features the latest Bandag retread technology.
The plant expects to make 2500 units this year, rising to 5000 units in 2013.
5-Let, the 100 percent Hungarian owned company, is involved in green energy solutions, mainly geothermal energy, since 1996. Retreading truck tyres uses up to 75 percent less energy and resources than making new tyres. It also reduces the number of tyres to be disposed of. This new retread factory represents a new step forward in 5-Let's commitment towards the environment.
This new Bandag dealer also strengthens Bridgestone's fleet package in Hungary, consisting of new tyres, retreads and services, designed to lower end users' costs.
