Portuguese tire retreader Fedima from Alcobaça – a partner of Vipal Rubber – is celebrating 50 years in operation. To mark the milestone, Fedima recently held an exclusive event with 400 customers and suppliers.
Attendees were given a guided tour of the plant, which included a demonstration of some of the latest equipment at Fedima’s manufacturing plant, and a lunch served at Solar de Cerca near the 12th century monastery in Alcobaça.
Fedima also paid tribute to important people who have been part of the company’s journey over the past five decades. Vipal presented a commemorative plate to the CEO of the company, Carlos Marques.
“Vipal, which is also close to celebrating 50 years in operation, is proud to be part of this story. For this reason we congratulate Fedima for this milestone and for its constant dedication to protecting the environment through tire retreading,” commented Fabricio Nedeff, commercial manager at Vipal Europe.
“We are pleased with this recognition from our partner Vipal. Fedima really believes in the ecological benefits of tire retreading, which we have been practicing for five decades,” added Marques.
