Vipal Celebrates Success at Fenatran 2022


Vipal Rubber is celebrating positive results obtained during its participation in the 23rd International Road Cargo Transport Trade Show, Fenatran, which returned in November after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Vipal Wins NTC Transport Suppliers Award

The company's participation in the exhibition was marked by success in the NTC Transport Suppliers Award, where Vipal was the winner in the Tyre Retreading Brands category. Conferred by the National Association of Cargo Transport and Logistics (NTC & Logística), in partnership with OTM Editora, the award is considered one of the most important in transport in Brazil and aims to recognise the best cargo transport suppliers in the country.

Vipal Rubber's Marketing Manager, Tales Pinheiro, celebrated the company's achievement and participation in the exhibition. “We were very pleased with the company's achievement of this award, which is highly relevant to the entire Brazilian transport segment. We are getting close to our 50th anniversary in 2023, and this recognition demonstrates that we are on the right path,” he commented. Pinheiro also highlighted the return of the face-to-face event in a very positive way. “We were happy with the result of the meetings and deals that we were able to conduct over the five days of Fenatran. It was great to meet our customers and road partners again”, he concluded.

The main innovation at the Vipal stand was the launch of the DV-RT5, a tread designed to deliver excellent mileage performance with superior cracking resistance. Featuring an exclusive design and compound developed especially for the new tread, the DV-RT5 also has the M+S marking that guarantees good performance even in the most severe conditions of use. Other standout treads on the stand were the DV-UM3B, VT830, DV-RM, DV-MTE and VL110LA.

In addition to the novelties and highlighted products, Vipal Rubber took advantage of its participation in Fenatran by designing its stand in the image of retreaders from its Authorised Network. With more than 250 authorised retreaders in Latin America, of which around 200 are in Brazil, the Vipal Authorised Network is strategically distributed in all Brazilian regions through its retreaders. “Fenatran was a great opportunity to demonstrate how close Vipal is to its partners including the design of our stand,” pointed out Ivanir Canevese, National Manager of Vipal Authorised Network. “Whether in products, machines or services, the whole of Vipal supports our Authorised Network. Together we bring complete solutions to carriers,” he concluded.
