Marangoni wins award for Ringtread RTL
Marangoni has won the American magazine award Ringtread RTL for the best new truck sector products. The Heavy Duty Trucking’s Top 20 Products award was received by Bill Sweatman, General Manager of Marangoni Tread North America, and Giampaolo Brioschi, Marangoni Corporate R&D Director, at the ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ringtread RTL offers a world-class retread choice for spread axle trailers and is manufactured in the USA by Marangoni Tread North America. This product was selected as one of the HDT Top 20 Products chosen by a panel of industry experts from a list of products picked in 2017 by the editors of Heavy Duty Trucking magazine.
The products were rated for innovation, the ability to address industry issues, and the potential to offer direct financial savings to a fleet manager. Marangoni Tread North America solved the problem of tyre drag, twisted shoulders and corner scrubbing with the innovative Ringtread RTL SA 16/32”, which the company added to the XP Extreme Performance range of premium splice-less retreads, capable of reducing fleet operating cost by 20%.
“We are delighted to get this award as the competition represents the very best products in the truck sector. It is worth emphasising this is the very first time this award has been given to a retread product.” Said Brioschi.
The RTL SA utilises a combination of Marangoni’s unique Ringtread technology and a compound to increase mileage, and reduce premature wear when used on a spread-axle, or multi-axle trailer.
