The worldwide retreading specialists answer to the growing market demand for lower operational costs.
Rovereto (IT) – Marangoni Retreading Systems are aiming to prove to fleet managers that cheap tyres actually cost more than retread options when they take centre stage at Autopromotec, the international automotive equipment event in Bologna (Hall 22, Booth C 43), from the 24th to the 28th May 2017.
The Italian company, renowned for their exclusive RINGTREAD System which has already proved to be a worldwide success story, will be side-by-side with its sister company TRM (Booth A 44), the leading manufacturer of machinery for the retreading of truck, passenger, OTR and aircraft tyres. This choice represents the Marangoni Group’s focus on the core business of retreading, and the on-going revaluation of all the key factors influencing the indirect retreading business, such as R&D, manufacturing and logistics procedures. The company has also carried out a reappraisal of its core market, strengthening technical support services to ensure retreaders and dealers receive enhanced after-sales options to increase their end-user reach. This fundamental review has already paid off for customers, and has resulted in the development of overseas markets through new partnerships and joint ventures.
Autopromotec visitors will also get the opportunity to visit the “Marangoni Sustainability Corner” in Hall 15 (near the Marangoni Direct Retreading and Services business unit: Booth A 33), where the company is aiming to lead the fightback against environmentally damaging, uneconomical, low quality tyres with poor retreadability. Marangoni staff will be on hand to explain how retreading adds extra “lives” to tyres, and considerably reduces their rate of disposal – potentially saving the global transport industry 8.45 billion euros annually.
With the emphasis firmly on providing cost containment solutions, specialists from Marangoni’s Retreading Systems division will be available at their stand to demonstrate the innovative and highly efficient “RingBuilder Saturn,” and the company’s RINGTREAD Blackline latest Fuel Efficiency products.
The “RingBuilder Saturn” is an exclusive new technology, guaranteeing outstanding tyre-level performance and exceptional value for money. The machine has been brought to the market by Marangoni as part of the company’s strategy to allow medium-sized retreaders to enter the RINGTREAD System with a quicker return on their investment.
The newest tread-products on display are two fuel efficient designs that deliver the best all-around compromise on traction, fuel saving, and mileage for long haul applications:
- RINGTREAD Blackline RTL FE is a super fuel saver trailer pattern due to a premium low rolling resistance compound, ensuring that regular wear delivers longer life cycles.
- RINGTREAD Blackline RDL FE is a drive pattern which delivers great fuel economy and provides an optimum combination of enhanced durability, superb road traction and great handling in wet conditions.
Having reconfirmed their commitment to offering extensive cost savings to fleet owners, Marangoni has been focusing on providing marketplace solutions for the ever growing demand for environmentally friendly and better performing retread options. These include recent product launches such as:
- a premium quality winter range, recently expanded with new or extended lines of patterns, such as the RINGTREAD RDW MS9, the RINGTREAD Blackline WSS and the RINGTREAD Blackline ICE100;

- The UNITREAD UZA L, the all positions/all purposes light-rib design that represents the perfect economical solution for fleets looking for the best compromise between mileage and safety.
The company has produced a range of informative brochures aimed to explain to fleet managers the benefits of quality retreads as an alternative to purchasing cheaper one-life tyres. Specialists will be on hand to explain how the use of superior quality tyres, combined with advanced Marangoni technology, will extend the life of tyres and make significant environmental and financial savings. Visitors to the show will also be able to pick up copies of the company’s latest brochures, featuring detailed information about Marangoni’s ever growing range of products.
