Increased Co-operation Agreed
KRAIBURG says it has been able to significantly expand its share in the Spanish retreading material market recently thanks to the support of Spanish retreader INSA Turbo, which forms a major part of Grupo Soledad, and KRAIBURG management took advantage of the occasion to carry out important strategic meetings at the Group’s headquarters in Elche. Grupo Soledad is one of the key retail players in the Spanish market, with a distribution network of more than 100 company-owned shops and a franchise network with 1,000 points of sale across Spain and Portugal.
The agenda of the convention included presentations from the Soledad group to clarify the strategic importance of their partnership with the KRAIBURG team as well as to underline the two companies’ mutual decision to increase the level of cooperation on common goals in both precure and hotcure retreading.
After the meetings, the KRAIBURG team made a visit to the INSA Turbo facilities in Aspe, which are not limited to truck tyre retreading activities, but also include Spain’s largest 4×4 and passenger car tyre retreading factory, as well as a recycling line. With a total of 250,000 square metres INSA Turbo holds the largest company premises in Europe – with further expansion areas available.
At the end of the Sales Convention the KRAIBURG team hosted a gala dinner attended by members of the first and second generations of Grupo Soledad.
“We have been able to share with the entire KRAIBURG sales team the satisfaction of having a reliable partner who has the same quality philosophy as KRAIBURG when it comes to truck tyre retreading,” explained Stefan Mayrhofer, General Manager of KRAIBURG Austria.
“We see a lot of potential in continuously developing our partnership with KRAIBURG, especially regarding its proven and undoubted expertise in compounding and design development, added Salvador Perez Lucena, commercial director of INSA Turbo.
