For Italy’s Marangoni Group, the decision about the future of its new tyre production plant in Anagni (near Rome) and its 400 employees was not an easy one to reach.  Yet after many years of losses running into the millions and no prospect of this improving in the future, in September the company penned the final chapter on its almost quarter-century long engagement in new tyre production – and despite the difficult nature of this decision it comes as a weight off the shoulders for Marangoni’s management, and they are sanguine about devoting all their attention to the core retreading business in future and making strategic investments there.

In the magazine: December 2013

2013 in review

If 2013 was a tyre, by the this next month’s magazine arrives we’ll be down to 1.6mm of tread. Soon another year will have come and gone, a year that delivered highs and lows and everything in between. As is the custom, in December Tyres & Accessories will look back on the year that’s been and highlight some of the issues of importance to the tyre industry. At the same time we’ll cast our eyes ahead to 2014 and what may lie around the corner.

Round out your year of T&A with a read of December’s year in review feature.

Around the workshop

It may be true that not all black circular objects are created equal, yet regardless of whether budget or premium, the performance of each and every tyre can be improved through correct fitment and preparation for use. In a nod towards the importance of correctly kitting a tyre out before it hits the road, in December Tyres & Accessories will present not one, but two features dedicated to this topic.

Look for our tyre changer and wheel balancer plus our garage consumables features in this month’s magazine.
