Mesnac has opened a new European Research and Technical Center (MERTC) in the Trencianska Tepla region of Slovakia.
Here Mesnac will produce its latest models of passenger tire building machines, including the P-Pro, P-Pro N, and its latest fully automatic machine, the P-ProXT; truck tire building machines such as the T-Pro; and hydraulic curing presses.
The MERTC will also serve as a base for developing RFID technology, smart manufacturing, logistics and robotic technologies under the Kengic brand.
At the opening ceremony, Karol Vanko, Mesnac VP, said, “By opening this new plant, MESNAC strengthens its activities in Europe, as the new facilities will improve the entire process of developing and testing new machines, providing warranty and post-warranty services and spare parts supply.
“It will provide a fully equipped production facility which will enable MESNAC to supply machinery that meets the performance, quality and safety standards of the European based global and regional tire companies. The location and capability of this new facility will allow MESNAC to provide a very competitive commercial and service package to its European customers.”
