Vienna - Austrian retreader Edler Reifen GmbH has teamed with Italian retread technology firm Marangoni SpA for its new Vienna branch.
Edler Reifen's new branch features Marangoni's Ringtread (spliceless retread) process and equipment, Marangoni said in a 9 Dec statement.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new site was held 19 Sept with approximately 200 guests.
The new location has storage capacity for 1,800 truck tires and 25,000 passenger tires and features a Ringtread stand and a Marangoni roll-up display at the entrance.
The Ringtread system is now used for the largest part of Reifen Edler's cold truck and bus retreading production, and the volumes continue to increase, according to the company.
"Since the introduction of Ringtread, we've been really satisfied with the efficiency and ease of production made possible by Marangoni's... cold retreading technology," said Robert Edler, owner of Edler Reifen.
According to Edler, most of the company's customers are experiencing "a more reliable and top-quality product" with 'significantly lower' operating costs of the fleets.
"In particular, their customers especially appreciate Ringtread patterns such as the BUS400, MIX101 and the Blackline RDR HM3," acording to Christian Asmuth, sales manager at Marangoni Retreading Systems Deutschland.
Edler Reifen is a family-run business founded in 1929, retreading truck tires since 1961.
Marangoni Retreading Systems is a division of the Marangoni Group, which develops and distributes materials and technologies for the cold retreading of truck and bus tires.
