Vipal Rubber was elected the best company in all categories it competed, in the first edition of the Recircle Awards, which recognizes contributions made by companies and professionals to the circular economy within the tyre manufacturing, retreading and recycling industries. The awards reaffirm the company as one of the market references in solutions for the retreading segment, in addition to highlighting its leadership in sustainability and environmental preservation.
Vipal won the award in the categories of Best Precured Tread Supplier, Best Tyre Retreading Equipment and Accessory Supplier, through Vipal Machinery, and Best Innovation in the Tyre Retreading Industry. The latter for the Eye Control technology, developed to allow the user to easily identify anomalies in alignment, geometry and irregular wear, and also indicating the correct time to rotate the tyres or to retread them.
According to Vipal Rubber´s Director of International Business, Leandro Rigon, “an important recognition like this, is pure fuel to our team who do great work in the engineering and development of retreading materials and equipment, to better service our customers in the retreading industry. Nevertheless, the true winners of it are the retreaders who believe in us and we dedicate it to them all”. Rigon points out that focus on preserving the environment and sustainability permeates on all Vipal´s processes. “Making the circular economy viable is directly linked to tyre retreading, which is in line with everything we believe in”, the Director concludes.
