MGT Tyre taken over by Italmatic
Italmatic Italy reports that it has taken over MGT Tyre, an OTR and aviation tyre retreading equipment manufacturer, in a deal that includes the brand and the related technology and know-how. Dr. Massimo Ghitturi, CEO of Italmatic Italy, pointed out that the takeover of MGT forms part of the company’s plans to invest in its technology and human resources with a view to becoming “the leading company in the worldwide retreading equipment market.”
“Today MGT and Italmatic Customers” said Dr. Massimo Ghitturi, “have available the best and latest technology supplied by the most experienced group and this combination assures the best service and performances.”
Following Italmatic’s appointment of Stefano Staico as its new sales manager for retreading equipment, the company now reports that it can count on the support and cooperation of Fabrizio Manfredi, managing director of MGT Italy as well.
Italmatic Italy, which has specialized in the supply of complete plants and accessories designed for the retreading of any class of tyre since 1966, now boasts the most advanced range of computerized equipment for OTR retreading up to 63-inches and aviation tyres.
The MGT Optima One 63”, for example, is said to be the most advanced eight axis extruder strip winding building machine, peeling, buffing, grooving for OTR from 26.5R25 up to 55/90R63 (including 70/70R57) in the world. Combined with Italmatic autoclave, it can satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding OTR retreaders, according to the company.
