Marangoni Retreading Systems have further expanded their worldwide RINGTREAD network following a partnership deal with Finnish retreader Lujakumi Oy based in Pori on the country’s west coast.
Lujakumi Oy are members of the Point S network and have a large independent customer base around Finland and Åland, the Swedish-speaking archipelago in the Baltic Sea. The company, which was set up in 1954, is managed by the second generation of the Lujala family. Originally offering tyre service, tyre repair and a hot cure retread process, the company has been involved in the precure process since 1968 and now operates with a workforce of 30 people.
The severity of the weather in winter means grip and traction are key factors in the Finnish market and Lujakumi Oy will now use the latest and most modern technology provided by the RINGTREAD System to retread premium quality casings from the most reliable new tyre brands.
Lujakumi Oy Managing Director Hanna Maja welcomed the partnership agreement, and commented; “In our sector there is ever growing competition, and customers are demanding higher efficiency from the products we supply and install. Here at Lujakumi Oy we looked for lower rolling resistance, fuel consumption efficiency, traction, and higher mileage from our retreads, so we can provide increased performance and lower costs per kilometre to our many customers. Going forwards, we will be able to satisfy the demand from fleet customers to meet the need for improved quality and better efficiency, due to our new partnership with Marangoni.”
