Arnco tyre fill range production begins in Germany
Accella Tyre Fill Systems GmbH, the subsidiary of US company Accella Performance Materials formed prior to the August 2014 acquisition of Rösler Tyre Innovators’ “Zeus” tyre fill business (and known as Zeus Tyre Fill Systems GmbH immediately after the acquisition), has announced it will begin producing the Arnco portfolio at the former Rösler facility in Dortmund, Germany. Accella states that the start of Arnco production at the Dortmund site is a “significant milestone” for the company.
“The Dortmund, Germany facility is now a key strategic large scale tyre fill manufacturing and technology centre to better serve our clients in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East for the Arnco, Pathway, and Zeus brands,” said Accella CEO Andy Harris. Martin Rösler, managing director of Accella Tyre Fill Systems Operations, added: “The Dortmund, Germany manufacturing facility will now be able to offer traditional oil-based tyre fill systems along with reduced hazardous labelled materials.”
Significant investments have been made to develop new material technologies that promote sustainability and continue to offer value to our clients. According to Matt Pearson, vice-president of international sales, “the Dortmund, Germany facility will serve as a technical centre that will stock the full range of tyre fill pumps. This centre will offer technical training, parts and full pump service. Future plans include a commercial training centre where clients may send their employees for training to help improve their sales and profitability.”
