Representatives from eight Turkish Marangoni retreaders experienced the company’s industry leading tyre management service in Italy.
Rovereto (IT) – A high level delegation of Marangoni retreaders from the Turkish truck tyre sector have made a fact-finding visit to Italy to make an in depth examination of the company’s approach to fleet tyre management.
A group of 19 experts from eight of the country’s leading companies jetted to Italy to attend a five day demonstration of Marangoni’s industry leading “Fleet Advantage” tyre management service, which also included a visit to the Marangoni Retreading Systems plant in Ferentino where the company manufactures precured materials for the cold retreading (treads and RINGTREADs).
The main goal of the initiative was to experience the company’s fleet tyre management option developed by Marangoni Group company specialist Fedi Gomme. This offers exceptional value to fleet managers by ensuring efficient vehicle operation while reducing and variabilising the tyre running and maintenance costs. The management system also has a positive impact on indirect costs affected by regular maintenance, including fuel consumption and vehicle downtime.
The trip, from October 3 to 7, proved a great opportunity for the Turkish partners to make repeat visits to fleets serviced by the “Fleet Advantage” programme, which helped the party gain a much greater knowledge of how the services are provided.
This allowed the Turkish business group to experience the role and function of each the company’s individual service components: from an analysis of the precise needs of each fleet in different settings, to tyre performance monitoring and on-site assistance from special mobile workshops.
The visitors also took the opportunity to visit the Marangoni plant in Ferentino, where they saw the company’s Retreading Systems products, R&D, and production process first hand.
Marangoni’s successful partnership initiative was aimed at helping overseas dealers to further improve their businesses in their own countries, thanks to the company’s newly developed tools and innovative business approaches.
The representatives from the eight Marangoni truck tyre retreaders travelled back to Turkey with an increased understanding of how efficient tyre management can decrease mileage costs for hauling fleets.
