Marangoni recently had the honor of participating in the 50th anniversary celebrations of Recauchutagem Ramôa, a key Portuguese client and member of the Ringtread network of retreaders.
The event was held on Saturday September 29, 2018, to celebrate the milestone with associates and partners. More than 250 people attended, including all 110 employees. Guests included Enrico Centi, area manager of Marangoni Retreading Systems, who awarded company founder Manuel Ramôa with a commemorative plaque signed by chairman Vittorio Marangoni (see photo, above).
Thanking Marangoni warmly for the gift, Ramôa said, “In a competitive, constantly evolving industry such as that of truck and bus tires, it is only through excellence, commitment and teamwork that we can maintain the competitive advantage of our companies, thereby creating value for the transport fleets.
“Drawing on its experience, the support of a dedicated partner such as Marangoni, and the quality of its materials for retreading, Recauchutagem Ramôa is now ready to take on new challenges and lay the foundations for further future development.”
The Portuguese company, founded on August 31, 1968, has been operating in the tire sector for 50 years, offering TBR tire retreading using Marangoni’s Ringtread system.
Recauchutagem Ramôa, which is still run by the founding family, has had a successful history and has grown steadily and strongly over the years.
In addition to opening nine sales outlets strategically located in the areas where it is present, the company has maintained this growth through various investments to further increase the quality of its retreaded tires.
One of its most recent investments was the purchase – in 2012 – of a Marangoni Sfera 3000 inspection machine that uses shearography. Also in 2016 it incorporated into its production process a new Eagle 2500 automatic buffing machine manufactured by Marangoni.
