Vipal Rubber Expands Partnership with Radburg in Europe


Vipal Rubber has expanded its partnership with the Romanian retreader, Radburg, one of the largest tyre retreaders in Europe.

New Partnership with Retreader Strong Move for Vipal Rubber

Since 2018, Radburg has been producing with Vipal rubber, focusing in its commercial tyre retreading line. After reviewing the feedback received by clientele Radburg signed the first partnership with the brand the following year. Last year, this partnership was solidified with the completion of the logistic system and continuous delivery of precured treads for commercial vehicles. Currently, Radburg retreads about 5,000 TBR tyres a month. 

According to the General Manager of Vipal Europe, Frederico Schmidt, the expansion of the partnership with Radburg is expected to grow even more in the coming years. “Radburg is a solid and well-recognised company in the segment, with continuous investments in state-of-the-art equipment and products. In these aspects, Vipal has exactly what Radburg needs to offer the best to its customers when it comes to tyre retreading,” said Schmidt.

The Managing Director of Radburg, Mr. Catalin Turculet, took over the management of the company in 2016 and is responsible for achieving the company’s objective of maintaining the constant growth that it has been going through in recent years.

“There was a great synergy with Vipal Rubber on our vision of business expansion and expansion of our operations. It is a differentiated supplier, which has efficient solutions and flexibility to work this partnership in a positive way for both companies, aiming for the long term”, highlighted Turculet.
