Trelleborg introduces specialist construction tire range on Intermat debut
Trelleborg Wheel Systems, global market leader in industrial tires, will make its debut at the Intermat 2015 exhibition highlighting its range of construction tires. On display will be the Brawler range of solid tires as well as the company’s C-800 OTR pneumatics and the latest product offering for Europe; rubber tracks.
Richard Le Borgne, Regional Director for France & Benelux, commented; “We are delighted to be at Intermat 2015 with our Construction range. Brawler is designed to work in some of the most demanding environments on earth and we believe that the benefits of choosing Brawler are very clear – increased productivity, reduced maintenance costs and better reliability. We are also very pleased to be featuring our range of OTR pneumatic tires and rubber tracks, all of which combine together to give us a very clear offering to the construction sector.”
The Brawler range of large off-the-road (OTR) solid tires are specifically designed for use in demanding environments where pneumatic tires are more susceptible to damage and failure, including construction, demolition, waste management and underground mining.
This range of construction products perfectly complements Trelleborg’s existing range of premium tires for materials handling applications and underpins the company’s successful presence in the construction segment. Sites often operate 24/7, and require that tires last longer, maintenance is minimized and the best ‘Total Value of Ownership’ over the tires whole life is minimized.
Le Borgne continued: “At Trelleborg we believe in adding value to customer operations through products that are designed to last longer, reduce machine downtime and perform safely from day one until they need to be replaced. In Brawler we have a proven market leader and we believe that our rubber tracks perform comparably with OEM products. We are very excited by the possibilities ahead in this challenging market and to working with our customers on some very interesting projects.”
