Latest Ringtread Technology Shown off at Opening of New Plant
Pennsylvania based Bergey’s Tire Service celebrated the grand opening of their newly remodelled retreading facility on May 11. The company had spend the previous six months upgrading the Perkasie plant to improve quality, efficiency and to upgrade their equipment to the latest Marangoni retreading technology. New state of the art equipment, from inspection to curing, include the addition of the Marangoni ITT Sfera Shearographic inspection machine, a Marangoni 2500 buffer, the latest in building technology in the Marangoni Ringbuilder 3000, the modular AZ cushion extruder and builder combination, and the latest Cure-Tech curing chambers.
The company signed on as part of the Marangoni Ringtread network in June 2006, and at that time Bergey Tire president Duane Bergey stated “In an effort to maintain our professional independence and provide the best product to our fleet customers, we have decided to grow our business with Marangoni Tread North America. We have been producing the Ringtread retreads for four years at our plant in Perkasie, Pennsylvania, and it distinguishes us from our competitors. We feel Marangoni is the best partner for our future.”
At the recent opening Mr. Bergey added “With 50 years retreading experience and expertise, we recognize the Ringtread technology as the most advanced retreading technology in the world….We are totally committed to serving our fleet customers with the best products and services possible and I think this new plant shows how far we will go to reduce their costs and help them be successful.”
