Vipal Takes Part in the Great American Trucking Show in Texas


Vipal Rubber took part in another edition of the Great American Trucking Show, held August 24-26, in the city of Dallas, Texas. This is the second consecutive year that the brand participated in the convention, aimed exclusively at trucker audiences, gathering more than 500 exhibitors from the segment. Vipal was represented by Leonardo Oliveira and Amaramh Velazquez, both Vipal Technicians and Sales Representatives in the region.

During the three days of the event, Vipal presented to the public products known worldwide and currently used in the North American market, including the SmartWay Transport verified treads, which assure more savings and reduction in fuel consumption, as well as high yields to the fleets. Vipal was the first South American company to receive this validation from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and this was also the first time the EPA verified tyre treads. They also presented the ECO treads, among other prominent products of Vipal.

Known for bringing together transportation companies, engine, parts, and components manufacturers, the Great American Trucking Show is an annual interactive action with the truck driver community, where participants can test trucks and their products, among other activities. It is also an opportunity to exchange knowledge and participate in educational sessions from the Texas Truck Association.
