Marangoni strengthens its service and sales team in turkey
Marangoni Retreading Systems appointed Nejat Dagdemir as general manager of its Marangoni Kaucuk Ticaret, Turkish sales subsidiary, which is located in Izmir.
With 400,000 retreads a year and around 80 retreaders, Turkey is the sixth biggest European market in terms of the total number of retreads, and second only to Germany regarding cold retreading technology. This means that, with the Marangoni Ringtread and Unitread lines, Marangoni Kaucuk Ticaret has a 20 per cent share of the domestic market – that’s according to company representatives who characterize this as a good level, although less than in other European countries.
The retreading systems supplier reports that Marangoni’s Turkish sales subsidiary was successfully established and developed by Osman Bayik over the last 20 years. He has now retired, but the operation maintains an administrative and logistics function, as well as supporting customers – comprising around 15 medium-large retreaders – with sales, technical and numerous other services.
New appointee Nejat Dagdemir is a mechanical engineer 20 years’ experience at multinational and international companies. His career started at Mercedes Benz, continued at Pirelli where he held various sales positions before becoming Business Unit Truck Manager. Prior to joining Marangoni Dagdemir was Country Representative for Alliance Tyre Group.
“I am very happy to be part of the Marangoni team”, Dagdemir stated, adding: “and I hope to contribute to increasingly spreading the idea that, with Ringtread, we have an exclusive product of the highest
quality, which can ensure growth and profits for the end user”.
