Marangoni exhibiting at Steinexpo with Recamax

The flexibility of the Marangoni retreading process will be demonstrated at Steinexpo by a specially prepared 45/65R45 tyre that has been retreaded with multiple different patterns

Teaming up with its German OTR retread distributor Recamax, Marangoni aims to use the upcoming Steinexpo show to “highlight the advantages of OTR tyre retreading in relation to cost and environmental savings.”

This year is the third occasion in which Recamax, part of the Marangoni group since 2014, showcased Marangoni OTR tyres at Steinexpo, one of Europe’s largest and most significant stone quarry trade fairs.

Luca Mai, Marangoni’s sales director EMEA for OTR tyres, stresses the growing importance to both companies of decreasing end user costs in the OTR sector: “When managing OTR tyres, being able to maximise the efficiency and return of the initial investment made at the time of purchase becomes the most important objective. Ultimately, it’s about being able to get the best hourly cost.” Noting that Recamax has proved itself the “ideal partner” for OTR customers for decades, Mai comments that “the company can supply the right technical advice in order to select the right tyre for every application – offering customers best practise specified products at the lowest operating cost level.”

“Retreading gives a tyre a second or even a third life in some cases, which leads to considerable savings in terms of costs. If correctly managed, even the largest tyre can be retreaded for less than 40 to 50% of the cost of a new, premium tyre,” adds Heike Kerkhof, managing director of Recamax. “Recamax’s target is to maximise customer satisfaction and obtain the lowest possible cost per hour.”

The complete flexibility of the Marangoni retreading process will be illustrated by a specially prepared 45/65R45 tyre, which has been retreaded with multiple different patterns.

Marangoni states that its OTR retreads “save thousands of tonnes of raw materials such as rubber and steel, significantly contributing to global CO2 emission reduction” every year. The company estimates that four 23.5R25 retreaded tyres lead to approximately 2.5 kilogrammes fewer CO2 emissions than their new equivalents. Furthermore, retreading a 45/65R45 tyre for wheel loaders saves more than 50 per cent of the oil required to manufacture an equivalent sized new tyre.

Recamax sales and management staff will be available at their stand (B46) for consultation with existing clients, and Marangoni says they’re especially keen to meet new customers who are examining their retread options, and looking to optimise their fleet’s efficiency.
