Vipal Bulgarian distributor trained 15 companies in 2019
Bulgarian retreading and tyre repair firm Basvulk opened a new training centre in March 2019 to expand its customers’ knowledge. In the eight months since, Basvulk trained 15 companies in how to properly apply materials during tyre repairing processes. Vipal Rubber said its leading position in South America as an important global manufacturer of tyre repairing and retreading products is supported by its commitment to the technical qualification of its sector.
The Kyustendil, Bulgaria company’s customers who experienced the workshops and hands-on training at the distributor’s facilities include Chavdar Georgiev, from Sofia, Lachezar Nikolov, from Vidin, and Altay Eminov, from Satovcha. Chavdar Georgiev said: “the training centre environment and the organization were perfect! We were able to become familiar with all the details of tyre repairing, as well as the types of vulcanisation and repairing materials. We will definitely send other company employees for training.”
For Lachezar Nikolov, the experience was positive, because “the training demonstrated new technologies for more productive repairs, which is essential for growth and development in this industry.” Similarly, Altay Eminov feels that “the training programs are extremely important, because they contribute directly to working effectively and provide a major competitive advantage in the market.”
According to Stoyan Gogov, owner of Basvulk, the space is very important for the market, because it allows for improving, in practice, the processes applied in the day-to-day routine. “Our training centre offers a variety of group or individual training opportunities to meet the specific needs of partner companies, attentive to the current trends in tyre repairing for cars, light trucks, trucks, industrial and agricultural tyres,” says Gogov. “The companies participating in the training trust our structure and know-how, and we believe that this experience should consistently contribute to the rapid development of their businesses.”
For Vipal, present in over 90 countries on four continents, the initiative by the Bulgarian company proves the importance of transmitting technical expertise, which contributes to the qualification of the market as a whole. Frederico Schmidt, general manager of Vipal Europe, said that the company chooses its commercial partners carefully. He emphasises that “initiatives like this, demonstrates the commitment to quality and show why we choose serious and dedicated companies.”
