Happy 40th Birthday to Marangoni's Ringtread

May 16, 2016

Marangoni Tread North America Inc. is celebrating 40 years of the Ringtread.

It was introduced by Marangoni and designed to combine the best features from mold cure technology — no splice, double contour round shape, and precision control of dimensions — with precure tread manufacturing. The company says Ringtread technology changed the retreading industry forever.

The first Ringtread, the Splice-Less Retread, was manufactured April 27, 1976, in Ferentino, Italy. The American made Ringtread was first manufactured at the Madison, Tenn. facility on April 27th, 2004. Since then, Marangoni Tread North America has produced and sold millions of rings and achieved a 5% market share within the North American market.

CEO and President Bill Sweatman said, “Today we celebrate 40 years of excellence and although the Ring of 40 years ago was a quality leap in retread technology, the Ring of today is even better. Our new extreme performance line is setting new records for reliability, durability, mileage, traction, fuel economy, appearance and ride.

"I would also like to celebrate and recognize all of you for your continued commitment to manufacturing excellence."

Marangoni says the Ringtread is designed to provide fleets with better fuel economy, lowest cost per mile, high mileage, less downtime, no vibrations, increased reliability and a new tire appearance.
