VIENNA, Austria—Edler Reifen GmbH, Austria's largest tire retreader, teamed with Italian retread technology firm Marangoni S.p.A. on its new Vienna branch.
Edler Reifen's new branch features Marangoni's Ringtread (spliceless retread) process and equipment.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new site was held Sept. 19 with approximately 200 guests.
The new location has storage capacity for 1,800 truck tires and 25,000 passenger tires and features a Ringtread stand and a Marangoni roll-up display at the entrance.
The Ringtread system now is used for the largest part of Reifen Edler's cold truck and bus retreading production, and the volumes continue to increase, according to the company.
"Since the introduction of Ringtread, we've been really satisfied with the efficiency and ease of production made possible by Marangoni's leading-edge cold retreading technology," said Robert Edler, owner of Edler Reifen. "Most of all, our customers are experiencing a more reliable and top-quality product. The use of premium retreaded tires lower significantly the operating costs of the fleets and also help to protect the environment."
Edler Reifen is a family-run business founded in 1929, retreading truck tires since 1961.
"Our globally proven retreading system, combined with Edler Reifen's experience and customer-oriented service ensures the best quality solution for the Austrian transportation fleets," Christian Asmuth, sales manager at Marangoni Retreading Systems Deutschland, said. "In particular, their customers especially appreciate Ringtread patterns such as the BUS400, MIX101 and the Blackline RDR HM3."
Marangoni Retreading Systems is a division of the Marangoni Group, a global developer and distributor of materials and technologies for the cold retreading of truck and bus tires.
"Marangoni looks forward to continuing the successful partnership with Edler Reifen, with which it shares the same value proposition, meaning premium quality retreading and care for the environment," the company said.
