Madison (TN), USA – Worldwide tyre retread specialists Marangoni have been named as winners of a prestigious American magazine award aimed at discovering the best new truck sector products. The Heavy Duty Trucking’s Top 20 Products award was presented to company representatives during a glittering ceremony at the ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ringtread RTL SA offers a world class retread choice for spread axle trailers, and is manufactured in the USA by Marangoni Tread North America. This product was selected as one of the HDT Top 20 Products chosen by a panel of industry experts from a list of products picked in 2017 by the editors of Heavy Duty Trucking magazine.
Each product was rated for innovation, the ability to address industry issues, and the potential to offer direct financial savings to a fleet manager. Marangoni Tread North America solved the problem of tyre drag, twisted shoulders and corner scrubbing with the innovative Ringtread RTL SA 16/32”, which the company added to the XP Extreme Performance range of premium splice-less retreads, capable of reducing fleet operating cost by 20%.
The award demonstrated the continuing commitment to excellence, innovation and product development in the truck tyre retreading sector by the Marangoni Group. The prize was received by Bill Sweatman, General Manager of Marangoni Tread North America, and Giampaolo Brioschi, Marangoni Corporate R&D Director. “We’re delighted to get this award as the competition represents the very best products in the truck sector. It’s worth emphasising this is the very first time this award has been given to a retread product.” Said Brioschi.
Marangoni’s unique Ringtread technology
The RTL SA utilises a combination of Marangoni’s unique Ringtread technology and a compound to increase mileage, and reduce premature wear when used on a spread-axle, or multi-axle trailer.
Tyres on a spread-axle or multi-axle trailer are subject to wear when cornering, due to tyre drag and lateral stress, shoulder twist, scrapes, chipping, and tearing.
The RTL SA was specifically designed and engineered to protect the tread and the casing from these kinds of issues and to increase the life of the tyres
The Ringtread XP Extreme Performance line also includes the drive treads: Extreme Fuel Saving RDA-E 25/32” SmartWay verified, Extreme Traction RDG100 26/32”, Extreme Mileage RDG200 27/32”, Wide Base RDAone 23/32” SmartWay verified, and Severe Service RDY-HM+ 30/32”.
Known across North America for their long life and high performance environmentally friendly products, Marangoni Tread North America is a full-service supplier, distributing Ringtread and Unitread retread options through a network of licensed independent tyre dealers and retreaders in the USA and Canada.
