Ruzi Brand a Highlight of the International Transport Trade Show in Portugal


Portugal’s National Public Road Freight Transport (ANTRAM) promoted, between June 1st and 3rd, another edition of the country’s National Transport Trade Show, in the city of Pombal.

Aimed at the road freight market, the event received drivers, businessmen, suppliers, and customers from various regions of Europe. Featured products included precured treads from Ruzi, one of the leading companies in the tyre retread market, acquired by Vipal Rubber in 2002.

Recauchutagem Idua, from the Portuguese city of Fafe, was the company responsible for showcasing Ruzi’s wide product portfolio, which today serves customers in more than 80 countries. “Recauchutagem Idua has been with us since 2010 and, more recently, has opened a space fully identified with the brand. Today, it is a company with a scope not only in Portugal, but also in France, which makes us very satisfied, since the tyres retreaded with Ruzi products are also going to other cities, such as Paris, where the retreader partners distribute tyres with the brand’s applications,” said Fabricio Nedeff, Vipal Rubber’s Business Coordinator in Europe.
