Vipal Machinery, the unit within the Brazilian company responsible for developing its position in the tyre retreading equipment sector, is reporting exceptional success in the US market, with four major North American retreaders acquiring a total of five pieces of machinery this year from Vipal Machinery´s portfolio.

Recently, Pete’s Road Services plant in Corona, California, installed a VR01 Smart Duo buffer from Vipal. Kyle Fletcher, Pete’s Owner, says he decided to buy the machine because he knows about its cost-benefit, in addition to knowing that he can count on the services and technical support that Vipal offers.
“We have already had a very good experience with Vipal in the supply of pre-cured treads and now we are also betting on their equipment, which should give us significant quality gains,” Noe Lara, Pete’s operations manager added.
The same buffer was also ordered by another major retreader, Retread Solutions, in North Carolina, who also ordered a VOC 760 Cargo cushion gum applicator. Two additional VOC 760 Cargos have also sold been to Jewell Tire Center, in Oxford, Maine, and to Purcell Tires and Service Center, at its Portland, Oregon facility.
