Vipal Rubber celebrates the positive results obtained during its participation in the 23rd International Road Cargo Transport Trade Show, known as Fenatran. With the return of the event after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, one of the world’s most important exhibitions in the transport and logistics segment marked the reunion of the main brands in the sector with the public. In a stand with a design similar to a retreader of its Authorised Network, the company presented news, such as the new tread DV-RT5, in addition to other exclusive designs that are the highlight of its portfolio.
The company's participation in the exhibition was also marked by the NTC Transport Suppliers Award. Vipal was the winner in the Tyre Retreading Brands category, in the award that reached its twentieth edition. Conferred by the National Association of Cargo Transport and Logistics (NTC&Logística), in partnership with OTM Editora, the award is considered one of the most important in transport in Brazil and aims to recognize the best cargo transport suppliers in the country.
Vipal Rubber's Marketing Manager, Tales Pinheiro, celebrated the company's achievement and participation in the exhibition. “We were very pleased with the company's achievement of this award, which is highly relevant to the entire Brazilian transport segment. We are getting close to our 50th anniversary, in 2023, and this recognition demonstrates that we are on the right path”, he commented. Pinheiro also highlighted the return of the face-to-face event in a very positive way. “We were happy with the result of the meetings and deals that we were able to conduct over the five days of Fenatran. It was great to meet our customers and road partners again”, he concluded.
The main innovation at the Vipal stand was the launch of the DV-RT5, a tread designed to deliver excellent mileage performance with superior cracking resistance. Exclusive design and compound, developed especially for the new tread. The DV-RT5 also has the M+S marking that guarantees good performance even in the most severe conditions of use. Other standout treads on the stand were the DV-UM3B, VT830, DV-RM, DV-MTE and VL110LA.
In addition to the novelties and highlighted products, Vipal Rubber took advantage of its participation in Fenatran to value its Authorised Network from the stand design, similar to the company´s partner retreaders. With more than 250 authorised retreaders in Latin America, of which around 200 are in Brazil, the Vipal Authorised Network is strategically distributed in all Brazilian regions through its retreaders. “Close to completing 50 years on the road, Vipal recognizes and values its partners throughout this successful trajectory. Fenatran was a great opportunity to demonstrate how close Vipal is to its partners including the design of our stand. This synergy allows the company to offer the most complete package of benefits in the tyre retreading market, exclusive for retreaders from the Vipal Authorised Network”, points out Ivanir Canevese, National Manager of Vipal Authorised Network. “Whether in products, machines or services, it is an entire Vipal supporting its Authorised Network. Together we bring complete solutions to carriers,” he concluded.
