Marangoni Celebrates 20 Years of Business in Brazil

Marangoni Brazil

On April 24th Marangoni reached the milestone of two decades of its factory in Brazil. Inaugurated in 2001, the Brazilian plant located in the state of Minas Gerais is responsible for marketing Marangoni’s RINGTREAD product in Brazil and across Latin America.

Marangoni Celebrate Two Decades in Brazil

Marangoni arrived in Brazil with the mission to deliver to Brazilian retreaders and their customers a higher quality product for what is a country of continental dimensions, possessing one the largest road networks in the world. At the time this was a meaningful challenge for a brand that had developed solutions and innovations that contributed to the evolution of the segment worldwide and consolidated the RINGTREAD brand as a global reference in tyre retreading.  

Today, Marangoni continues to invest in Brazil with new products and technologies that will allow it to constantly renew its mission to deliver quality tyre retreading materials.

“We have spent twenty years delivering new life for truck and bus tyres in Brazil and Latin America, and we’re proud to deliver high-quality products, with the credibility and trust that Marangoni has around the world. It’s a date we celebrate by being on every road in the country, with products travelling countless kilometres to every corner of the continent. This is what drives us to keep developing solutions more and more complete and sustainable”, commented Giacomo Melotti, CEO of the Brazilian unit.

In a message delivered to the Brazilian employees for this occasion, Marangoni Group Chairman Vittorio Marangoni stated; “From the retreading of tyres in an abandoned bomb shelter after the Second World War, to a world technological leadership. This is, in short, the history of our group. Marangoni arrived in Brazil in 2001 and built from scratch a reality that has established itself and has been able to be appreciated. Now Marangoni Tread Latino America celebrates 20 years since its foundation, and we wish it a long life full of success and satisfaction. I want to thank all those who believed in this and made this achievement possible.”
