Marangoni celebrates 40th anniversary of its Ringtread retread system

In May of 1976 Marangoni inaugurated its first plant for the production of rings in Ferentino, Italy. The concept arose from an idea destined to revolutionize the cold retreading system: the construction of a precured tread ring to be applied on truck tires.

The advantages of the new technology were immediately apparent: the tread ring is precured in a circular shape, so as to adhere perfectly to the tyre. Also tires retreaded using the ring are spliceless, and thus the limitation of flat strip retreading is eliminated. The result of this technique is a retreaded tire that is comparable to a new one in terms of appearance, performance, and durability.

Meanwhile in 2017 the company is due to open a new ring production unit in South Africa. Its presence in India is still in an early stage but has already materialized in a local joint venture, under which it will develop a Marangoni retread franchise system for the Indian market.
