Trelleborg’s ProgressiveTraction technology wins Agribex 2013 award
Trelleborg has received the ‘Silver Ears 2013’ innovation award for its ProgressiveTraction technology at leading agricultural exhibition, Agribex 2013, in Brussels, Belgium.
The show’s innovation awards honour the most innovative and ground-breaking machines and technologies across the agricultural industry. They are awarded by a professional judging panel based on the results of stringent assessments carried out in the months preceding the exhibition.
Fedagrim, the organiser of Agribex, the international trade show for agriculture, livestock breeding, landscaping and green zones, announced the winners in a ceremony on 3 December. This was attended by representatives from leading manufacturers, along with journalists from across the agricultural industry’s most influential publications.
Piero Mancinelli, R&D director, Agricultural and Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems said: “After being named ‘Machine of the year 2014’ at Agritechnica 2013, for our ProgressiveTraction™ tire to be named ‘Silver Ears 2013’ at Agribex 2013 is an exceptional achievement. It is testament to Trelleborg’s commitment to continually developing innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of future farming.”
