As of 24 April, the Marangoni factory in Brazil is 20 years old. Inaugurated in 2001, the plant in Minas Gerais state was instrumental in introducing the Ringtread system to markets throughout Latin America, and as such has fulfilled Marangoni’s mission of providing tyre retreaders and their customers with “a higher quality product” suited to a continent that’s home to one of the world’s largest road networks.
The Vipal agreement, the Dmack project, the political storms, the ever-changing retreading market. Vittorio and Giuseppe Marangoni, president and vice president of the Italian Marangoni Group, talk about these industry-related topics and more in an interview with Tyres & Accessories.
After less than two years in the job, Dino Maggioni has chosen to step down as chief executive officer of Marangoni S.p.A. and also leave all other positions he held within the group. According to a statement issued by the company, Maggioni’s departure follows a review of the “strategical directions that were assigned to Mr Dino Maggioni in the autumn of 2016.”
The Marangoni Group and UAE-based conglomerate the Onyx Group, through its subsidiary Ceylon Steel Corporation (CSCL), have signed a binding Memorandum of Understanding pertaining to the industrial tyre market. Upon announcing the MoU’s signing, Marangoni states that this represents “a further step in the strategy of Onyx Group to invest in the tyre sector, with the objective of becoming the largest tyre manufacturer in Sri Lanka and serving both local and international markets.”
Dino Maggioni has been named the new chief executive officer of the Marangoni Group. He succeeds Massimo De Alessandri in this role and was appointed by the company’s board after approval was granted at a shareholder meeting. During the meeting, the company’s statutory charter was also modified to increase the number of directors to eight board members.
Vittorio Marangoni has taken over as president of Marangoni SpA. His appointment to the position was confirmed at a meeting of the retreading and tyre machinery specialist’s Board of Directors late last month. The Board also named Giuseppe Marangoni the company’s new vice-president, while company founder Mario Marangoni received the title of honorary president as a mark of respect for his more than 60 years of commitment in leading the Marangoni Group.
