Vipal Rubber was once again present at the traditional Off-the-Road Tire Conference (OTR), which reached its 67th edition, at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa, in Miramar Beach, Florida, United States. The event, which took place between February 23 and 26 and organized by the Tire Industry Association, brings the main news to the most diverse players in the off-road sector in the world, including end consumers, new tire distributors and retreaders. This was the first OTR Conference since 2020, when the last edition was held, interrupted last year due to the covid-19 pandemic.
Vipal was present at the conference with a stand, where it presented its solutions in compounds for the OTR tire industry. “It was very important for us to participate in the event again, as it was a great opportunity for us to meet with customers and prospects after the break that took place in 2021. In addition to the networking that the OTR Conference always promotes, it is a very special event in our calendar, because it represents a significant volume of sales and is also a significant part of our growth in the United States”, says Gabriel Fuma, Commercial Manager at Vipal NAFTA.
In addition to Fuma, the International Business Director of Vipal, Leandro Rigon, also participated in the OTR Conference; the NAFTA Regional Manager, Antonio Brito; the technical and commercial representative, Leonardo Oliveira; and the Commercial Manager of Mexico and Central America, Jean Barros.
