TECH Europe recently joined over 430 exhibitors from 35 countries at the 3rd Tire Cologne exhibition in Germany. The show attracted over 14,000 visitors from 100+ countries with interests ranging from tire repair, retreading and recycling as well as industrial repair and workshop equipment.

On our 80sqm stand, TECH’s leading tire repair materials were proudly on display alongside our sister companies from our parent company, TRC, including PANG Industrial and Salvadori Recycling. In addition, visitors to our stand were also shown our Truflex/PANG range of repair materials and retreading equipment.

A highlight at the TECH Europe stand were the live demonstrations provided by our Technical Trainer, Volodymyr Bagdasarian. Visitors gathered to watch as Volodymyr presented the extent of tire repair materials available from TECH including our leading Radial repair patches and Uni-Seal Ultra pin-plugs. The strength and durability of the TECH Permacure range was also a popular attraction as Volodymyr explained its wide range of applications including their suitability for use in the crown of all radial and bias tubeless passenger and truck tires, as well as the crown, shoulder and sidewall areas of all radial and bias tubeless agricultural, ATV and OTR tires.

To mark our attendance at this year’s exhibition, we were delighted to host a Customer Appreciation Reception to welcome our valued distributors. The evening began with thanking our partners for their continued support and exciting company news from our parent company, TRC, was also shared. The event also provided a great opportunity to introduce new members of our growing team. Recently, we have welcomed two new Business Development Managers, Laetitia Gharsallah (Southern Europe) and Oliver Hoffmann (DACH) as well as a new Regional Marketing Manager, Giulia Costa.

Most importantly, several of our customers were recognised for their long-standing and loyal relationship with us. First up, was Röper GmbH:
