Reifen Lindinger: A Bandag Partner for 35 Years
German tyre distributor Reifen Lindiger has been producing Bandag retreaded tyres since 1971. In May, Bandag honoured its loyal partner and celebrated the 35th anniversary of this ongoing business relationship. Christian Gross, production manager, was presented with a commemorative plaque from Ralf Schnelle, Bandag regional sales manager on the Bandag stand at Reifen Messe, the biennial tyre fair in Essen, Germany.
Reifen Lindinger is located in the centre of St. Ingbert, Saarland, Germany. The company is a member of Point-S Deutschland, a cooperation of over 200 independent tyre distributors, totalling more than 350 service outlets. Founded in 1921 by Adolf Lindinger as a tyre curing, repair shop and wholesaler, the family company is currently run by Ulrich Ernst, the son-in-law of Karl-Heinz Lindinger, the founder’s sons. Reifen Lindinger works in a wide range of tyre and wheel-related activities. The company provides products and services for cars, trucks, motorbikes, trailers, earth-moving equipment and industrial vehicles.
“We have been retreading tyres almost since the concept was first created,” states a proud Ulrich Ernst. “Our quest for quality and performance convinced us to switch from hot cap to precure Bandag tyre retreading as early as 1971. Today, we sell these superb retreads directly to the end-user as well as through 10 sub-dealers.”
