Vipal Rubber was once again present with a booth at the traditional Off-the-Road Tire Conference (OTR), which reached its 64th edition between February 20-23 at the Saddlebrook Resort in Tampa, Florida. The event, organized by the Tire Industry Association, showcases the latest innovations from the most diverse players in the off-road industry, including end consumers, new tire distributors and retreaders.


Vipal presented its rubber compounds solutions for the OTR tire industry. “It was very important for us to participate in the event again, because we attended the various conferences, including the ones on the industry’s economic perspectives for the year, main commodities that drive this market, and other industry related lectures,” says Gabriel Fuma, Commercial Manager of Vipal Rubber NAFTA. “We also benefited by taking advantage of the opportunity to establish new contacts with other companies and players in the industry. We look forward to fostering new business partnerships with our new contacts.”


In addition to Fuma, other people also participate in the OTR Conference, such as Vipal Rubber’s International Business Director, Leandro Rigon; NAFTA’s Regional Manager, Antonio Brito; Technical and Commercial Representatives, Leonardo Oliveira and Amaramh Velazquez; the Vipal Rubber’s Regional Manager for the South Pacific Region, Gilson Dugno; and the Commercial Manager for Mexico and Central America, Jean Barros.
