Vipal participates in the 7th Technical Conference of the Spanish Association of Retreaders

The event held in June brought together local customers and served to reinforce the strategic role of the company within the European tyre retread market.

Between June 15 and 16, Vipal Rubber took part in the 7th Technical Seminar of the AER (Spanish Association of Retreaders), held in the city of Segovia, Castilla-Leon region, Spain. The theme chosen this year was “Rebuild, Recycle, Future and Economy,” with a series of debates that served to show the importance of retreading to the economy.

Vipal earned prominence as the main sponsor of the event, offering a warm welcome, followed by a dinner on opening day. During the two days of the journey, some of the company’s customers were present, among them Insa Turbo, Fedima, Redigal and Muralla, and the Vipal team was represented by Frederico Schimdt, General Manager, and Fabrício Nedeff, Commercial Coordinator.

The Spanish Association of Recycled Tyres (AER) is a sectoral organisation that brings together companies dedicated to manufacture and the marketing of retreaded tyres. Established in May 1996, the entity brings together the most representative companies in Spain, with 47 associates and 10 collaborators. Since 2007, Vipal is a proud member of the AER, and believes that joining the retread tyre industry is essential if we are to overcome the obstacles of the economy and grow stronger together in this segment.
