Rodriguez commented; "It was very helpful to see how they work at Vipal Rubber, to share experiences with other retreaders and to see Vipal's facilities. The training was very complete and will help us to apply new techniques within our factory and understand how we should do the work with the fleets," he said. The owner of Recauchutados Muralla also stated that he considers "this type of meeting, outside their comfort zone, very useful for recycling ideas and methods. We will know to live up to the brand we represent and the responsibility it has," he said. He further added: "Understanding the importance and culture of retreading in Brazil gives us the strength to endorse it even more in our market."

Recauchutados Muralla, Vipal's customer for over 20 years, owns the RubberVulk brand, a line of patches, rubber tools, valves, wheel weights, and other accessories. The company also exclusively distributes Vipal Rubber brand's repair line in Spain and Portugal.
