Conti to preview bumper truck/bus range at IAA
Continental says it plans to premiere its next generation of truck tyres at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show 2012, which takes place in Hannover, Germany from 20 to 27 September. According to the German tyre maker’s account, there should be plenty to see – Continental says it will launch the “most comprehensive range of truck and bus tyres in the history of the company” during 2013. Nikolai Setzer, head of Continental’s Tyres division, Dr. Andreas Esser, head of the Commercial Vehicle Tyres business unit and Herbert Mensching, head of Marketing and Sales Truck Tyres EMEA, will discuss this and other current plans and developments at a press conference on 18 September.
Efficiency will be the main theme at Continental’s stand (hall 17, stand A06–B05) during this IAA. In addition to previewing the next generation of products, Continental will exhibit its latest services, designed to allow fleets to achieve the lowest overall costs in their specific applications. The focus will be on the Conti360° Fleet Services management system and the ContiLifeCycle retreading program, which includes ContiRe mould cure and ContiTread pre-cure retreading.
