  SPIRIT OF RETREADING AWARD Image: Slash Objects / www.slasho Discover at  KARUN SANGHI LIFTS SPIRIT OF RETREADING AWARD FOR TYRESOLES Tyresoles is one of India’s leading retreaders with over 75 years of history. The company, focused on the South and West of India produces an average of 12,000 tyres per month as well as operating its own tread rubber plant and a rubber flooring company which manufactures flooring products from rubber buffings.

Thanks to the efforts of TREA, this policy recognised retreading as an important part of the circular economy of tyres.
