Lukatec

Rosario, Argentina based Condor Group has announced a number of key investments in its retread plant as part of a plan to achieve aggressive growth over the next three years.

According to Director Mike Irvine the company increased the number of retreads produced by 55% during 2017 and is now planning to have the plant working 24 hours by the end of 2018. In order to achieve this growth, the company installed a Lukatec stitcher in 2016 and at the end of 2017 a new robot buffer and extrusion machine, also both from Lukatec.

Condor also received ISO 9001:2015 certification for its retread process in April 2018.
