A new 12-inch STARCO dual wheel solution for wheel loaders will arrive later this year. The company developed the STARCO AW Mini in close collaboration with Finnish loader manufacturer Avant Tecno, drawing upon its existing experience with other dual wheel solutions and the GS Schaad clamp system.
Although at three years of age Starco’s solid industrial tyre production plant in Sri Lanka is still a relative infant, initial targets set for the facility have already been reached and the company is now looking ahead to the next milestones. This sort of success doesn’t occur by accident, and the good experiences Starco has enjoyed so far in Sri Lanka are the result of planning that began long before the plant was even set up. Tyres & Accessories recently met a key figure Starco assigned to implement the solid tyre project, and learned a little more about the factory and the products being made there.
It has been interesting to watch Starco’s progression as a company through its presence at the last few Reifen shows. The Starco stands at each exhibition have reflected the Danish company’s expansion from a small tyre specialist through to an agricultural tyre and wheel supplier and maker and then to a manufacturer of industrial tyres. At Reifen 2014, Starco was intent on doing business.
Further local websites have been added to the Starco’s online presence. New sites for Poland, South Africa, Sweden and France are now live, and the company says it will add further sites in the coming months.
