TRC is driven by its 4r vision of Repair, Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose. TRC with their acquisition of Salvadori Srl. began the fulfillment of that vision. Salvadori, known for their expertise in recycling equipment also designs and manufactures innovative, high quality tools and materials used in the global Tire & Wheel repair industry. This Tire & Wheel group has been aligned with TRC’s Tire & Wheel legacy brand TECH.
One such tool, the Salvadori Rubber Extruder Gun, is considered the “Gold Standard” within the tire and wheel industry. The Salvadori extruder gun is used globally on section repairs conducted on commercial truck tires and off the road (OTR) tires. OTR tires are commonly found on earth movers. The extruder gun is also widely used in the tire retreading market.
According to TECH University Senior Technical Trainer, Billy Johnson, “The Salvadori extruder gun provides the high-volume flow tire technicians need to smoothly apply rubber to the injury. The power generated by the proprietary Salvadori dive system maintains a high flow that makes for a smoother repair and minimizes the time required by the technician to perform the repair.”
The complete line of Salvadori products will be supplied to the TECH Americas customers from the centralized warehouse and logistics hub in Johnstown, Ohio. According to Lou Calabrese, TECH VP of Sales for the Americas, “We are very excited to service our North American customers with quality Salvadori products through our warehouse in Johnstown, OH. The new distribution method provides customers with the benefits of a shorter lead time and local support.”
