Marangoni Retreading Systems expands Central Europe presence
Marangoni Retreading Systems reports that it has consolidated the presence of the Ringtread system in the Baltic region and the Ukraine by strengthening its partnerships with two important operators in the truck tyre distribution and service sector.
Installation of an ITT 3000 Sfera shearographic inspection machine and a RingTreader building machine at Oscarrehvid OU, a company based in Tallin, Estonia, has completed the equipment at the retreading plant that opened this year.
Oscarrehvid OU, which with six stores located in the country’s main transport nodes has clearly been distributing truck tyres some time now, identified the Ringtread retreading system and its partnership with Marangoni as an opportunity to offer its users an increasingly customised service. At the same time the business reports that it recognises the benefits of “significantly cut lead times”.
The other market in which Marangoni Retreading Systems has recently strengthened its presence in is the Ukraine, where two retreading plants have started operations using the Ringtread system this – one is located in Donetsk and the other in Kharkov. These two plants, equipped with Leonardo 2500 series electronic buffing machines, are operated by 100 Shin, a company based in Luhansk.
Operating on the Ukrainian market through a network of 15 stores, 100 Shin is one of the leading operators specialising in truck tyre distribution and service.
Company owner Andrey Vinnik commented: “By adopting the Ringtread retreading system, 110 Shin will further develop its retreading business, an important part of the package of services offered to Ukrainian fleets”.
