Vipal Rubber is proud of its history and knows that this success story is only possible with those who travel the same road. This is the case with Recauchutados Muralla S.A. (Remusa), located in Ávila, Spain, one of Vipal's most important partners in Europe, and a customer for over 30 years.
In the early 90s, the owners of Remusa, Mr. Enrique Jimenez Sanchez and Mr. Enrique Rodriguez Leyva, travelled to Brazil to see first-hand the solutions for tyre repairing and retreading that Vipal had to offer. They wanted to go to the source to understand the reason behind why the company receives such excellent recognition for its quality and durability. With presenting better solutions to the European market in mind, they started using the brand's repair line and, soon after, they took the whole tyre retreading line to Europe, products that have won and continue to win over customers all around the world.
Remusa gained a lot in quality when it started using Vipal´s products and expanded its participation in the Spanish retreading segment, becoming a major commercial partner of the company. Currently, Remusa, owner of the Rubbervulk brand, is the sole distributor of Vipal Rubber's repair line in Spain. Mr. Enrique Jimenez Sanchez celebrates the success of their partnership with great joy. “We are grateful to Vipal and its team for this 30-year partnership that fills us with pride. We want our companies to travel this road of success together. Having the quality of Vipal's products and services means we can deliver the best to our customers”, he adds.
To deepen their partnership even more, Remusa was the first European retreader to purchase equipment from Vipal Machinery. The company acquired, and has already installed, a VOC 760 Extruder, which optimizes application of cushion gum during the retreading process, as well as the use of raw materials. Vipal´s technical team supervised the installation of the machine. During the visit, the Commercial Manager of Vipal Europe, Fabricio Nedeff, took the opportunity to deliver a plaque in tribute to the 30-year partnership between the companies.
“We are happy they are the first to have Vipal machinery here in Europe. In regard to the tribute we paid to Remusa, I think this type of recognition is very important, which highlights the partnership between companies. I feel privileged to be able to be part of this story”, Nedeff exclaimed.
