The Recircle Awards, which took place on March 15, is a new global event designed to recognise the contribution of companies and individuals within the tyre manufacturing, retreading and recycling industries towards the Circular Economy.

Marangoni says the Best Tyre Retreader award was closely fought with contenders including some of the most important players in the global retreading sector.

The Marangoni Group was incorporated with its first retread plant in Rovereto in 1968 and has developed to export its system and technologies worldwide. The company has vertically integrated its retread operations in the rubber compounding, retreading equipment development and the material side like the RINGTREAD, flat tread and mould cure materials and accessories.

Marangoni Group Chairman Vittorio Marangoni commented on receiving the award: “Each step of the supply chain involved in tyre retreading, from material development to the actual retreading manufacturing process, holds its challenges and complexity.

"The retreaded tyre is only the last step but it’s the one putting it all together to satisfy the market’s various needs. Without forgetting how essential is the service provided to fleets during the product use. Being recognised as the Best Tyre Retreader to us means we’re able to master this complexity and use it to advantage our customers and retreader partners throughout the world.”

The company says that in the post-Covid19 environment there needs to be even more focused on preserving natural resources and reduce our carbon footprint. It adds that this starts with a local-for-local approach where retreading has always been a virtuous example.

“Our company has been doing circular economy for more than 75 years," Vittorio Marangoni. "We’ve always been investing in efficiency and innovation in all departments: from the implementation of new technologies and machinery to the improvement of our finished products, retreading materials and processes. We’re delighted to have reached this milestone, and we greatly appreciate the support received by this initiative and the focus provided to the circular economy topic.”
