VIPAL HONOURS ITS EUROPEAN CLIENTS FOR THEIR MANY YEARS OF PARTNERSHIP
Eleven companies in all, including retreaders and distributors, received plaques commemorating their 10- or 5-year history with Vipal
Vipal Rubber keeps solid relationships in many parts of the world, in the nearly 90 countries where it is present. The situation is no different in Europe. The Latin American leader and one of the world’s top manufacturers of tyre repair and retreading products is proud of its path with partnerships spanning many years with a number of clients in Europe. For a company that has spent more than 40 years encouraging its partners and nurturing a commitment to winning, this is cause for celebration. And this is exactly what happened with 11 Vipal distributors and retreaders in countries such as England, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Hungary and Turkey.
Three of these have been Vipal’s partners for 10 years: Grumac, from Grantham, which distributes the Repair line in, England; the retreader Herca, in Zaragoza, Spain; and the retreader São Mamede, in Guimarães, Portugal. Leandro Rigon, Vipal’s International Business Manager, and Michal Baxa, sales representative for Central Europe and the United Kingdom, handed Grumac’s representatives a plaque celebrating this feat during Reifen 2016, a trade show held in May in Essen, Germany. Herca’s representatives also received their trophy during the trade show, from Fabricio Nedeff, Sales Manager for Vipal Europe. São Mamede’s trophy was delivered to their company headquarters.
Eight other companies were also honoured for having travelled the same road as Vipal Rubber for five years. The retreaders Idua, Ramoa and São José (Portugal), Insa Turbo (Spain), the Repair line distributor Sziga (Hungary) and the Vipal tread distributor Tatko (Turkey) received their commemorative trophy at Reifen. Meanwhile, the retreader Manlu received its plaque during a visit to Vipal’s office in Valencia, Spain, from Alessandro Bottesini Campos, Branch Manager, and Fabricio Nedeff, Sales Manager. For Italian Vitti Gomme, the occasion took place at its head office in Altamura, in the presence of Alessandro Bottesini Campos, Manager of Vipal Europe and Maurizio Stassi sales representative in Italy, France and Benelux.
“No matter how long they’ve been together with Vipal, it is vitally important for us to have all of these European companies by our side. The tribute we pay them is merely a token of the recognition we have for their strength and their partnership, which makes us all grow and expand our businesses,” notes Campos.
