Fedan Tire

Vipal Rubber has paid tribute to Florida based retreader Fedan Tire Co. in recognition of 25 years of collaboration between the two companies.

Fedan Tire Celebrate 42 Years of Existence

Fedan Tire, who have been active in the market for 42 years, was Vipal's first commercial partner in the American market, and in honour of the excellent reputation built over these years and the long-term partnership, Vipal recently delivered a commemorative plaque to the company's headquarters, located in the city of Hialeah.

Felix Sanchez Junior, owner of Fedan Tire Co., received the plaque and professed himself to be delighted with the recognition; “I would like to thank Vipal for congratulating us and for the vote of confidence. Vipal has been a very important partner for our business during the past 25 years. Our company currently has the capacity to retread 3,000 tyres per month. With all the new equipment installed and the quality of Vipal's products, we have been able to deliver the best to our customers,” he said.

The Fedan owner also took advantage of the situation to acknowledge his father and Fedan founder, Mr. Felix Sanchez. “I would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Felo, now 90 years old, who started our history 42 years ago and continues to accompany us in our growth,” he added.

Vipal Rubber´s Commercial Manager for the NAFTA region, Gabriel Fuma, commented; “Fedan was the first retreader in the United States to believe in our products and services,” he said. “We wish Fedan a long life and for our strong partnership to continue so that we may keep offering the quality of Vipal Rubber´s products and services to carriers and consumers in Florida.”
