Vipal Rubber recently participated in ProfiAuto Show 2019, which took place on June 8 and 9 in the city of Katowice, Poland. The action was a partnership with Vipal’s exclusive distributor in the Polish market, Arko-Gum, which has been working with the company in Europe for 9 years.

At the trade show, Vipal showcased its tyre repair line, which is widely accepted in the market and includes products such as patches, adhesives, vulcanising cements, MC repairs and others. According to Fabricio Nedeff, Vipal’s Commercial Manager in Europe, the trade show was very productive for Vipal because it helped strengthen the brand in the Polish market, where it is already widely known.

“Although the market in Poland is very price-oriented, participating in this event was very positive because there is great demand for high-quality products like those offered by Vipal,” says Pawel Chmiel, representative of Arko-Gum.

Organised by ProfiAuto, a company that brings together the leading automotive wholesalers, stores and services in Poland, the ProfiAuto Show is one of the largest events in the sector in Eastern Europe, attracting a specialised audience seeking the newest developments in the industry, while offering a programme of courses and workshops to train professionals in the field. In 2019, there were 150 exhibitors from various European countries, receiving 46,000 visitors over the two days of the event.
