New Marangoni Partner in Benelux

Tyre Plan Europe

Marangoni Retreading Systems has announced the expansion of its business in Benelux, thanks to a new partnership with Tyre Plan Europe, part of the Kargro Group.

Tyre Plan Europe Joins Ringtread Network

Tyre Plan Europe BVBA was established in 1988, becoming over the years one of the major players in the region specialised in the precure process. The company has historically been affiliated to the Bandag network but has now decided to face its future as part of the RINGTREAD network by signing an exclusivity agreement for the use of the Marangoni’s premium retreading technology in the region.

Tyre Plan’s offer has always been based on premium products and high quality and by taking this step, its offer will be even more competitive. The company’s plant based in Kalmthout (near Antwerp, Belgium), manufactures approximately 16.000 precure retreads per year. Tyre Plan also runs a hot cure retreading facility in Montfoort, Netherlands, which has been supplied with compounds by Marangoni for many years.

In the past few weeks, Marangoni Retreading Systems has provided its new partner with the equipment and support required to quickly and effectively become operational in the use of the RINGTREAD System.

Jenny Nouws, Internal Sales and Administration Manager at Tyre Plan Europe commented: “RINGTREAD was the main reason why we choose Marangoni. In fact, due to the precured tread circular shape and the absence of the usual splice, retreaded tyres made using this technology are different from any others in the market.”

A further upgrade of the retreading plant’s capabilities is already scheduled for next September with the installation of a RingBuilder 3003.
